Bengals Put on Defensive Display Routing Browns



The Cincinnati Bengals defense once again stepped up to save an ailing offense in a dominating win over the Cleveland Browns.

After two straight nerve racking, stress inducing overtime losses to the Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens respectively, it was nice to see the Cincinnati Bengals picking up a W again. Especially when it's in regular time and wrapped up by the fourth quarter.

This weeks' impressive defeat of the Cleveland Browns came not because of quarterback Andy Dalton's ever impressive 93-yard performance that included two picks in two consecutive attempts, one of which was returned for a touchdown, but because of a stellar week for the two other sections of the Bengals team; Defense and Special Teams.

After going 13-0 down in the first quarter, the Bengals pulled up their socks in the second quarter and did what they needed to do. One deflected punt going for just nine yards and one blocked punt by Jayson Dimanche returned for a Touchdown by Tony Dye meant that the Bengals were able to get themselves back into this game.

Two touchdowns from Andy Dalton that came off of the deflected punt and a James Harrison interception were added to this tally in the second quarter before Linebacker Vontaze Burfict forced a fumble on a run by Browns running back Chris Ogbannaya and returned that for a touchdown too. A 41-yard field goal from Mike Nugent rounded out the 31 point second quarter, a Bengals franchise record.

Coming out of the tunnel for the second half of the game, the Bengals knew that the defense needed to continue their dominating performance in order to be able to put a stop to week 9's AFC player of the week, quarterback Jason Campbell. Two more interceptions at the hands of Reggie Nelson and Michael Johnson as well as two sacks and three fourth down turnovers insured that the defense showed that they were up to the task.

The Browns offense were unfortunately no match for a Bengals defense that seem to ruin top NFL offenses week in week out. With a performance that was worthy of a playoff spot, the Bengals defense showed their dominance once again and helped out the offense in the process. The offense however did not have a playoff worthy performance, as

The Bengals are still in the driving seat of the AFC North and going into the Bye week are looking very comfortable to be able to take the division and gain a decent playoff spot in January 2014.

That's not a hint of jealousy I detect, is it?!

No.  The Bengals this year.  Are totally inadequate.  The last two Play Off Participations were legit.  This time it won´t be genuine.
