His 1-yard toss to Isaiah Gerena made it 24-7 after three quarters.
Martinez finished 23-of-37 passing for 172 yards with one interception. He rushed for 29 yards.
Hunter Hays was 22 of 37 for 216 yards, a touchdown and an interception for the Bengals (1-7, 1-4). He added 90 yards rushing on 21 carries. He was sacked six times and the Lumberjacks recorded 16 tackles for loss.
