Deciding to dance with the one that brought him, quarterback Andy Dalton would hand the ball off once more to Green-Ellis for the Bengal touchdown. This would tie the game up at 7 in the first quarter.
It wouldn’t take long for the Bengals offense to get the ball right back as a quick pick of Brandon Weeden would give Cincinnati excellent field position and a chance to take their first lead of the game.
After calling a D-Pad up button/B button pass play, Dalton found no one open to throw the ball to so he tucked it and scampered into the end zone to make the score 14-7 Bengals in the second quarter.
The Bengals defense would come up huge again on the next Browns drive as they forced Weeden into another interception with just over two minutes to go in the first half.
