Game of the Day: Bengals @ Browns

Ah the battle of Ohio. The Bengals came into this game reeling from a blow out loss to the Ravens on Monday, while the Browns stunned the Steelers 24-10. Generally this rivalry ends in a shootout.

The Bengals wasted very little time scoring. On the 4th play of the game, Kenny Watson ran his way for 46 yards all the way to the Cleveland 17. Rudi Johnson scored on a draw play 2 plays later. 7-0 Bengals already on top. But the Browns were not to be denied. They went right down the field in 11 plays into the red zone....only to have that joke of a running game fail them on 3rd and 5. Phil Dawson kicked the FG. 7-3 Bengals. The Bengals got the ball back, and they marched down the field, with another long run by Watson of 16. This time, they weren't going to get a touchdown as a 3rd and 9 pass at the Browns 24 sailed over the head of Chad Johnson. Shayne Graham put 3 on the board for the Bengals. 10-3 Bengals. So 3 possessions, 3 scores. Obviously defense was not a factor to start the game until both of them stiffened in the red zone. But the Bengals nearly got the first breakthrough of the game as time was winding down in the 1st quarter. Jamal Lewis coughed the ball up in his own territory, but the Browns got it back.

The start of the 2nd quarter saw the Browns punting it away....Cincy once again went right through the Cleveland defense. But when they were at the Cleveland 23, they stalled. Another FG made it 13-3 Bengals. Ensuing possession, QB Derek Anderson through consecutive first down passes. One to Joe Jurevicious for 14, and another to Kellen Winslow for 12. By the two minute warning, the Browns were at the Bengals 4 yard line. On 3rd and 1, Anderson fires.....TOUCHDOWN TO JAMAL LEWIS!!! 13-10 Bengals. The teams traded punts and it was halftime of an entertaining first half seeing just 3 punts.

2nd half began poorly for Cleveland, who had a chance to rally from 2 possessions down to take the lead on a touchdown. They went 3 and out, and gave it back to that Bengals offense that punted just once in the game. Cincy went on a methodical, time consuming drive. A 12 play, 84 yard drive lasted 7:43, and it ended with a Chad Johnson touchdown! 20-10 Bengals. The Browns were looking to respond as they put together a nice drive that had Anderson, Jurevicius, and Winslow all as the key players. The 4th quarter would decide if they could provide the comeback.

The start of the 4th quarter was the start of Cleveland's comeback. The 3rd play of the quarter, and the 12th play of the drive, found Jamal Lewis in the end zone again. 20-17 Browns. Now that Browns defense needed to make the Bengals punter earn his money. Instead, Carson Palmer threw passes to Chris Henry (I think he played in week 2), Chad Johnson, and TJ Whosyourmama and next thing you know, the Bengals are at the Cleveland 4 with over 9:00 to play. Gut check time for the Browns D. A touchdown effectively ends the game.

1st and goal, Rudi Johnson for a loss of 1.

2nd and goal, Johnson gains a yard (HEYYYOOO!!!)

3rd and goal, Palmer in trouble, loses a yard.

So that goal line stand, combined with Shayne Graham's FG made it 23-17 Bengals with 7:14 left. Now all Cleveland needed was a time consuming, game winning touchdown drive.

This drive started at their own 34. First play, Winslow catches it and gains 13. Third play after a Lewis 2 yard run, Anderson to Winslow for 13 more. Fifth play after another short run by Lewis, Anderson to Braylon Edwards for 9 and a first down. Now they are at the Cincy 29 with 3:34 left and all 3 timeouts. Jerome Harrison then gained 12 yards to the 17. Two minutes left, and they are 17 yards away from a victory.

On a 3rd and 1 at the 11 after a short yardage pass to Edwards and a 6 yard run by Lewis, Harrison picked up 4 more yards. Now they are 7 yards away, the Bengals defense has to be tired.

1st and goal, Anderson for the end zone...incomplete.

2nd and goal, Lawrence Vickers loses 2.

3rd and goal, still plenty of time, Anderson for the end zone....PICKED OFF BY DELTHA O'NEAL!!! But O'Neal falls at his own 1. The Browns can certainly stop the Bengals and get the ball back with a safety...and they still had two timeouts.

Next play, Kenny Watson's impressive 130 yard day on just 11 carries was capped off with a game ending 39 scamper to his own 40. Kneel downs, Bengals get win #1, Browns get loss #1.

Bengals 23 Browns 17
