The feeling is that the momentum is slowly shifting to the Cleveland Browns. Leon Hall was called for a personal foul hitting a running back but D'Qwell Jackson destroyed a defenseless receiver Armon Binns, knocking him out of the game. I'm sure someone will make sense of that for me because I'm totally confused. Anyway. Eventually the Bengals found themselves deep in Cleveland's territory inside the redzone after a 31-yard pass interference penalty by Buster Skrine, covering Marvin Jones on a vertical down the left sidelines.
Then the Bengals offense stalled with under six minutes remaining in the first half.
Following an Andre Smith false start, pushing the offense to Browns 23-yard line, BenJarvus Green-Ellis picked up a minimal gain up the middle and Andy Dalton overthrew two wide open receivers.
Mike Nugent converts the 39-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 17-10 lead.
