Following back-to-back big wins over the Steelers and the Packers, the Cincinnati Bengals were looking to give themselves some cushion in the AFC North with a win in Cleveland.
*These simulations were done prior to the NFL season.
The Bengals would win the coin toss and choose to defer to the second half. A nice kickoff by Mike Nugent would pin the Browns on their own one-yard line to get things started.
But even though he had just been traded to the Indianapolis Colts, running back Trent Richardson would break free for a 99-yard run to give his former team an early 7-0 lead.
On the ensuing drive, BenJarvus Green-Ellis would make a huge run of his own, getting the Bengals quickly in Cleveland Brown territory.
