The Cincinnati Bengals faced must-win scenario today in Round 2 of the Battle of Ohio after a two-game losing streak had the Cleveland Browns into position to pull to within half of a game of the lead in the AFC North.

After falling behind 13-0 because of two Andy Dalton interceptions, one of which were taken to the house by cornerback Joe Haden, it looked like they didn’t have a chance to win today.

But the defense and special teams stood tall and forced two turnovers and blocked two punts  that led to a 31-0 run in the second quarter, and the Bengals would go on to win by a final score of 41-20.

The win puts the Bengals 2.5 games ahead of the Browns in the AFC North and Cincinnati improves to 7-4 on the year. We’ll have a full recap shortly.
