The Bengals use a whopping 31 second quarter points to down the Browns at home in a very strange game. The scoring came in a variety of ways for Cincy: they scored on three Andy Dalton touchdown passes, a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, and a fumble returned for a touchdown. The Browns had a pick-six (courtesy of Joe Haden) as well. As you can see, things got pretty crazy in the second battle of Ohio this season. Despite an ineffective offensive performance, the Bengals look good in this win. Three interceptions of Jason Campbell helped their cause as well as the Bengals were able to lean on their solid defense to put this game away and take a commanding three-game lead in the AFC North. The Browns really could have used a win in this one. Believe it or not, if the Browns were able to win, they would have been catapulted into the wild-card picture. With this loss, they do remain somewhat relevant in the AFC, but things to become much tougher for them moving forward. We shall see how this team responds next week at home against the Steelers in a game in which both team’s seasons hang in the balance. To win that game, the Browns will need to play much better on third down. 4/18 is a pretty ugly stat, no matter how you look at it.
