With the Browns reclaiming the 10-point lead they lost earlier in the third quarter, Cedric Benson, the team's only offensive trusted offensive weapon that's greatly contributing at this point in the game, picks up a first down on consecutive runs to the Bengals 35-yard line. Andrew Hawkins squats eight yards off the line of scrimmage and hauls in the reception setting up a second and two from their own 43-yard line.
Andy Dalton unleashes the football down the right sidelines with A.J. Green running vertical and Joe Haden covering. Green stops his route, finds the football and adjusts to the pass to haul in the 35-yard reception. On the following play, Dalton throws another deep pass, this time aiming towards the right front pylon with Jermaine Gresham positioning his massive frame over the poorly undersized defensive back, hauling in the 22-yard touchdown reception to cut Cincinnati's deficit to three points.
This offense needed their arrival into this game, setting up big plays with quick scores considering that Cincinnati's defense just isn't capable of slowing down Cleveland's offense Sunday afternoon.
