Cincinnati gave Cleveland a different look in their second matchup of the season: they showed up on defense, reports AP, picking off Browns quarterback Derek Anderson four times and hanging on for a 19-14 win. The Bengals scored twice in 39 seconds in the second quarter. Backup Kenny Watson rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown to pace the offense.
This Browns-Bengals game was quite a contrast to their last contest, where 96 points were scored and Anderson threw for five scores. In today's tough conditions, Braylon Edwards scored twice and set a team record with 15 TD catches this season. The loss puts Cleveland's playoff hopes in doubt now, as it battles Tennessee for the final AFC playoff spot.
