The Cincinnati Bengals came into today’s matchup with the Cleveland Browns needing a win after a loss last week. It was a win that never came, as the Bengals struggled on offense once again, and combined with a defense that couldn’t get on the field. The Browns got their first win of the season, while the Bengals fell to 3-3 with the Pittsburgh Steelers on the horizon.

The Bengals started off with a big play, a touchdown pass of 55 yards to Jermaine Gresham from Andy Dalton. The Browns answered with a big play of their own when Josh Gordon got past the secondary and Brandon Weeden found him for a 73 yard TD. Reggie Nelson was the defender who was beaten on the play. Cincinnati made it 14-7 at halftime when Dalton hit A.J. Green for a score late.

The second half saw the return of the Bengals offensive doldrums. They failed to put together any kind of drives, which led to a tired defense and Cleveland took advantage. After a couple of field goals, the Browns took their first lead on a 1 yard run by Montario Hardesty. Mike Nugent got the Bengals back within three, but the Browns opened it up, first with a short TD pass to Benjamin Watson, then with a Sheldon Brown pick six on a bad Dalton pass. Dalton did find Green for another long TD pass in garbage time, but a Dalton fumble inside Cleveland’s 10 yard line finished the game off.
