Former Bengals defensive end Frostee Rucker was named the game captain for the Cleveland Browns, but lost the coin toss. Cincinnati deferred, putting their ego-deflated defense on the field early. And on the first play of the game, the Browns call an end around to Travis Benjamin for 13 yards to the Browns 31-yard line. Trick play to start the game. Interesting.

Robert Geathers, Jeromy Miles and company held rookie running back Trent Richardson to two yards on first down. Overthrow on second down way out of bounds. With eight yards to go on third down, quarterback Brandon Weeden takes the drop. Michael Johnson collided with Joe Thomas, leg-whipping Weeden for a quarterback sack.

Adam Jones heads back to return the punt, replacing Brandon Tate. Adam Jones takes the punt, makes a handful of players miss and returns the punt 81 yards for the touchdown giving the Cincinnati Bengals a 7-0 lead. It's his fifth career punt return for touchdown, and first since 2006.
