The good news for the Browns is that their high-profile first-round rookies are looking better. The bad news is that the team is looking worse.
The Browns trail the Bengals, 24-10, in the third quarter of Cincinnati’s home opener.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has completed 14 of 20 passes for 193 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including one to receiver A.J. Green. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has added 50 rushing yards.
A 32-yard touchdown run by Richardson pulled the score to 14-10, but the Bengals steadily have pulled away.
