The Browns were too much for the Bengals on Monday Night Football.

Cleveland blew out their Ohio neighbors 32-13. The Browns stopped a four-game skid, improving to 3-5, while the Bengals saw their winning streak end in falling to 4-4.

The Browns gained 440 yards, while holding the Bengals to 229.

Nick Chubb rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries; Jacoby Brissett ran for a touchdown and completed 17 of 22 passes for 278 yards and a touchdown; and Amari Cooper caught five passes for 131 yards and a touchdown.

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had a rough night without star receiver Ja'Marr Chase, who is out with a hip injury, and behind a shaky offensive line. The Browns sacked Burrow five times, including 1.5 by Myles Garrett, intercepted him once and forced a fumble.

Burrow completed 25 of 35 passes for 232 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Burrow is now 0-4 against the Browns, while Cleveland coach Kevin Stefanski is 5-0 against the Bengals.

Joe Mixon had only eight carries for 27 yards.

Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd each had a touchdown catch.

  1. I’m confused. Where was Joe Burrow’s “swagger” tonight?

    Maybe he forgot to wear his gold chains?

  2. I despise both of these teams, but Joe Burrow once again proves that he is overrated. For all of the trash talk about Kenny Pickett, he’s still better than Burrow or Brissett.

  3. How is the Bengals O-line still so bad after all the investments they’ve made in that position? Do they have ANY coaching?

  4. Zac Taylor is just not good at his job. We’ll see how long Burrow and Chase can carry him.

  5. That dude is mediocre without Chase.

    If you can’t recognize that by now your just being intellectually dishonest.

  6. Worst game plan this side of the Raiders. All the predictions were for the Bengals (without their top wideout) to run the ball against one of the worst run defenses in the league. Of course they come out throwing 20x to 5 runs in the 1st half and don’t know what went wrong.

  7. Watson handed 5-6 football team is like giving a chipmunk a Delmonico steak……all that means is the browns will end up 5-12? How many games are there? The nfl is truly abysmal

  8. Cleveland’s defensive coordinator finally did his job after three seasons. He’s been abysmal with all of the talent on that side of the ball.

  9. Joe Mixon looks done. And Chris Evans is jumping off the screen when he gets snaps, yet Taylor only lets him have 2 snaps a game. It’s gonna take a Mixon benching (or injury) to get the most out of this offense. Maybe do something about Jonah Williams too. At the very least they should be moving him to guard this offseason.

    ————-
    Not even remotely close to being better than Burrow or Brissett.

  11. It is amazing how all these experts gave the Bengals a power ranking from around 9 to 5. Well, they lost to the Browns which they ranked in the 20’s. What a laugh. Over ranked much? Well, the Browns had the Bengals for dinner.

  12. I didn’t buy the “bengals figured out their issues” line the media gave us. While I do think jamar chase takes the offense to another level, there was enough talent to win the game. Bengals not the same team as last year.

  13. People seem to forget the Browns’ losses have all come by a field goal or less except one. They aren’t your typical 3-5 team. It’s not surprising they handled the Bengals without Chase for Burrow to lean on

  14. Sometimes it sure seems like the last few years the “guaranteed Elite QB’s” coming out of college are having a rough time of it. Makes me wonder if the Jags, Bengals, Browns, (Mayfield), Jets, etc. are questioning their ability to scout these kids coming out. Then again maybe it’s because the rest of their rosters were so horrid they earned a top 5 pick?

  15. Like I said, Burrow and Herbert overhyped, sub .500 for their career, but don’t listen to me. Told ya Hurts and Tua legit, got nothing but thumbs down.

    They’re using the Dolphins OL strategy.

  17. Is it only my tv or is the rest of the nfl world on Monday night football forced to watch the manning boys turn the booth into a freak show with no commentary about the game that’s going on ??

  18. I’m a Browns fan and while I was happy to see them beat Cincy, some in the media are acting like this was some kind of huge turnaround for the team.

    This game hinged on the O-lines. Cincy’s was awful, and the Browns’ was good. Some want to act like Burrow plays in a vacuum – regardless of whether Chase was there, his line couldn’t protect him. No QB is going to be successful if they’re getting hit after 2 seconds on every play.

    But the Browns D played like they’re supposed to, which is good. If only they played that well every week.

    I’ve lost faith in Stefanski, and now that Baker is gone, who will the next scapegoat be? If Watson doesn’t play well, I wouldn’t be surprised if Haslam fires him – because that’s what Haslam does. He will make sure we never develop a winning culture or have any stability to build upon. The Browns’ dysfunction starts at the top and trickles down.

  19. Wow. That Bailey Zappe’s win against the Browns looks even more impressive now.
