The Cleveland Browns are doing their best to stay in this one. After Mike Nugent converted perhaps a game-winning 37-yard field goal, establishing a 10-point lead, the Browns put together a 66-yard drive on nine plays, but were forced into a fourth down with :24 seconds remaining in the game. Phil Dawson converted the 25-yard field goal, reducing Cincinnati's lead to a single possession.

The Browns attempted an onside, but wide receiver A.J. Green, on the hands team, cradles the football and Andy Dalton takes the knee giving Cincinnati a 34-27 win over the Cleveland Browns.
