Bengals pull clear against Browns

Andy Dalton AP

After a brief Browns rally, the Bengals have added to their lead and hold a 41-20 edge late in the fourth quarter at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

The Browns cut into the Bengals’ lead in the third quarter when quarterback Jason Campbell connected with wideout Josh Gordon on a 74-yard touchdown. This drew Cleveland to within 11 at 31-20. However, the Browns haven’t been able to build on that, and the Bengals have responded with 10 points since, including a field goal after Cleveland attempted a fourth-down play deep in its own territory and failed to convert. The other score came earlier in the fourth quarter, when quarterback Andy Dalton hit tight end Alex Smith for a one-yard TD.

Dalton has had a day only fantasy football players could love. He’s completed just 13-of-27 passes for 93 yards, and he’s been picked twice. However, he has three TD passes.

Indeed, it’s been an odd day of sorts for Cincinnati. But it looks like it will be a winning one for the first-place Bengals.

    ONCE AGAIN….. Jermaine Gresham is undependable and lacking explosiveness and Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu can’t get separation.

    Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu should retire and take their magic act to Las Vegas.

    WHO DEY!

    Look on the bright side Brownies, the weather might keep you from having to go back to that mistake on the lake, Cleveland.

    I give the Browns some credit. They’re a pretty young team still reeling from missing out on RGIII. They have a nice Pro-Bowl level CB in Alfred E. Haden, so I think they’ll be much better next year if they can get some talent around him.

    Those turnovers killed the Browns, they had their chance and blew it.

    Andy Dalton stunk the joint out but the Bungals won despite him.

    The best move the Browns made in the last decade was not giving up all those picks for RGIII.

    At least you could make the argument that the Browns are playing with their third string QB. Bengals fans should be just as concerned about their QB situation as the Browns.

    I can’t comprehend Gruden throwing the ball around in the first quarter. The Browns were playing back and Andy can’t throw into that wind (neither did Campbell for that matter). At least they wised up in the third quarter and ran the ball.

    93 yards. Wow

    They won’t get that lucky in the playoffs. Andy should be thanking each player on defense and special teams for that victory.

    Browns fan finally goes quiet after talking ridiculous smack all week. The Bengals are now 2 wins away from securing a winning season, and two months away from losing in the first round of the playoffs.

    Uggghhh. That was sickening. Handed the Bungles that win on a platter. The 2nd quarter alone was an absolute nightmare!

    Good win for you, Cinci. Please note I am congratulating the TEAM and not their fans, the worst in all of sports.

    t8. The final score was what? Grab a tissue.

    “Good win for you, Cinci. Please note I am congratulating the TEAM and not their fans, the worst in all of sports.”

    Really? I’ve been a Cinci fan living in Cleveland for 8 years now and I’ve officially given up on even trying to go to the stadium. In 8 years, I can’t get anywhere without someone barking in my face and starting a fight. Last time – they tried to start a fight with my Mom (we’ll be polite and say she is 50+ years old). Cleveland has, and always will have, some of the most unhappy, loathing, drunken, homer sports fans in the country…. I’m glad they lost. And yes, Andy Dalton sucks – and Jason Campbell is just as bad.

    You didn’t hand us that win. Our defense and special teams took it from you. Our defense, despite being down two of our best players, is just as good or better than yours. And though our offense stunk, yours stunk worse. And our special teams is head and shoulders above yours. As far as bad fans, Browns fans have been talking smack all week and your team didn’t live up to it.

    Personally that division blows. Cincy will lose in the playoffs as always!
