Thanks to a pair of missed field goals by Browns kicker Billy Cundiff, the Bengals trail by just four points, and will have the ball to start thew second-half.
Dalton didn’t do any better in the second-half, and Dalton was strip-sacked on the opening possession of the third-quarter, and Dalton could never seem to find his rhythm today.
Still, it looked like there was still plenty of time and opportunities left after the offense punted the ball with the game still decided by just one score, 10-6, with 12 minutes left in the game.
But the Browns would go on a 12-play, 91-yard drive that ate-up 6:37 off the clock that ended with a Chris Ogbonnaya TD run to ice the game and down the Bengals, 17-6.
Both of the Bengals losses have now come as a result of the offense being unable to make enough plays to build off of a solid defensive performance.
