Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Clyde Gates caught a 17-yard score from Michael Vick early in the fourth quarter as the New York Jets grabbed a 25-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in preseason action on Saturday.

Gates' score gave the Jets a 23-17 lead 1 1/2 minutes into the fourth quarter, and IK Enemkpali blocked a Kevin Huber punt with the ball going out of the end zone to give the Jets a safety on Cincinnati's ensuing possession.

The Bengals failed on an attempted fourth-down conversion just past midfield later in the fourth, and Matt Scott had a pass picked off a bit later to end the game.

Giovani Bernard's 1-yard plunge into the end zone gave the Bengals a 14-3 lead after one quarter, and a Smith interception led to a 42-yard field goal from Nugent early in the second quarter.

Scott fumbled the ball when he was sacked and the Jets recovered at the Cincinnati 19. Four plays later, Bilal Powell got into the end zone from two yards out to make it a 17-10 game.
