Adam Jones scores an 81-yard touchdown and Joshua Cribbs causes a few heartbeats to miss on a 38-yard kickoff return, to the Browns 36-yard line. And the Cleveland Browns converted an early first down during the possession, on a second down 19-yard completion to Massaquoi -- the first completion of over 10 yards in Brandon Weeden's NFL career.

The Browns continued pushing the possession into Bengals territory, eventually setting up a third-and-five from Cincinnati's 38-yard line. He finds Greg Little on a crossing pattern with Nate Clements in coverage for an 11-yard gain. Eventually the possession stalled, forcing a third down with 15 yards needed, thanks largely to an offensive holding on second down. Weeden takes the shotgun snap and throws the football beyond Josh Gordon's outstretched fingers.

Phil Dawson converts the 50-yard field goal, chipping into Cincinnati's lead, 7-3.
