But the Bengals defense would be clutch yet again as they forced a fumble and recovered it down around the Cleveland 32-yard line.
In a game of back and forth, the Bengals were finally able to end it as Andy Dalton found Jermaine Gresham in the back of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.
This would make the final score in overtime the Bengals 23, the Browns 17.
Green-Ellis woke up in the second half following a dismal first half. He ended up with 62 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Neither team put up much yardage through the air other than the few Dalton bombs and the Brown flea flickers.
The win helped to give the Bengals some breathing room in the division, and some much-needed momentum as they head into their bye week next week.
