AFC North Standings: Steelers sit atop the division at the quarter mark

AFC North Standings: Steelers sit atop the division at the quarter mark

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, putting them in sole position in the AFC North. And then there was one...at least for now. After the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore Sunday, the Steelers have taken sole possession of first place in the lackluster AFC North. However, that wasn’t the only action which took place in the division this weekend. The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals went head-to-head, and the Browns seemed to have reached new lows. Before we get into each game, let’s update the AFC North Standings after...

NFL Week 4: Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Browns shows changes are coming

NFL Week 4: Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Browns shows changes are coming

Several young players got even more involved against the Browns after playing well last week. The Cincinnati Bengals notched their first win of the season by defeating the Cleveland Browns. It was really a team effort to pull off the domination we saw on Sunday. The passing game was firing on all cylinders, as Andy Dalton tossed four touchdowns and completed 25 of his 30 passes. A.J. Green built off his great performance last week with five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. However, it was Tyler Kroft who really gave the Browns’ defense trouble. Kroft caught two touchdowns filling...

Andy Dalton throws 4 touchdowns in monster game vs Browns

Andy Dalton throws 4 touchdowns in monster game vs Browns

The veteran quarterback ignored his early struggles en route to his best performance of the season. Remember when Andy Dalton threw four interceptions on opening day? Remember when some Bengals fans wanted to see their quarterback benched? I do, but barely. On Sunday, the Bengals took a business trip to Cleveland in search of their first win. Dalton would help them find it, but the fashion in which the team won is what stands out. The Bengals looked anemic during the first two weeks under offensive coordinator Ken Zampese, scoring a grand total of nine points in two games. Dalton threw for...

Social media reactions to Bengals’ 31-7 win over the Browns

The Bengals won! Man, we waited too long to say that and the internet reacted accordingly with lots of fun facts and stats. The Bengals finally won a game! *Excuse me while I stop to cheer for a few minutes!* OK; I’m back. That was fun. I mean, maybe not for the ‘Bengals suck; let’s just lose them all’ crowd, but I enjoy watching the Bengals win games. So here we are with some time to enjoy the win over the Browns and hope for another against the Bills next Sunday when the team returns home to Paul Brown Stadium for the first time since Ken Zampese was fired as offensive...

5 thoughts on Bengals’ crushing defeat of Browns in Cleveland

5 thoughts on Bengals’ crushing defeat of Browns in Cleveland

Cincinnati finally seems to be putting it all together, though their first win did come against the lowly Browns. FirstEnergy Stadium is proving to be the home away from home for the Cincinnati Bengals. After dropping its inaugural visit to the home of the Cleveland Browns, the Bengals have now won four straight games there after crushing the Browns by a 31-7 count. Of course, the question that remains to be answered is whether Cincinnati has finally overcome its early offensive woes, or whether Cleveland is just that bad. But several things did stand out with the Bengals’ first victory...

2018 NFL Draft order: Another winless team down in Week 4

2018 NFL Draft order: Another winless team down in Week 4

The Browns have the top pick, at least for now. But there are still four winless teams, including the 49ers. Another week and another loss for the San Francisco 49ers. It also meant a win for the Cincinnati Bengals, one of five remaining winless teams going into Sunday. They bested the Cleveland Browns who, like the 49ers, remain winless. The Browns also happen to hold the top spot for the 2018 NFL Draft, with an 0-4 record and a strength of schedule of .438. The 49ers, though, are right behind them, also at 0-4, with a strength of schedule of .625. Then there’s the New York Giants and...

Dalton paints Bengals to 31-7 winIn front of one of his NFL mentors Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton staged a clinic for Browns head coach Hue Jackson Sunday when he hit 19 of his first 20 passes that included 16 straight and threw four touchdown passes to give the Bengals their first win of the season in 31-7 victory. After an incompletion on a deep ball to wide receiver Brandon LaFell, Dalton logged the longest completion skein by a...

Browns’ defensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 4

Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns' Week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The #Browns started a defense in Week 4 worth a combined $17.9M in 2017 cap, lowest in the league by $10M. https://t.co/H9EWSnncm2— Spotrac (@spotrac) October 1, 2017 Notes: I don’t know if I’ve ever seen this before: as a team, the Browns had more sacks (3) than quarterback hits (2). How is that even possible? I guess it’s because the first sack by Emmanuel Ogbah was a strip of a pass (before the arm was moving forward) and not a hit on Andy Dalton....

Browns’ offensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 4

Not enough progress for DeShone Kizer, and the wide receiver struggles continue. Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns' Week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Notes: This was another game of regression for DeShone Kizer. He’s getting ample protection, but completed just 47% of his passes. Kenny Britt didn’t do him any favors early on, but he was rocketing short passes at the feet of his receivers and just looked confused by what the defense was throwing at him all game. According to PFF, Kizer was pressured 14 times and did not complete a...

Dre Kirkpatrick subtly makes jab at Andy Dalton

Dre Kirkpatrick subtly makes jab at Andy Dalton

Maybe he didn’t mean for this to be an insult, but it was certainly an insult. When you announce that someone “showed up” that means they weren’t present prior to then, right? That’s why when Dre Kirkpatrick attempted to compliment Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton following the team’s win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, it actually came across as an insult. “We’re starting to look like the Cincinnati Bengals. We’re clicking. Andy Dalton showed up,” Kirkpatrick said following the win, via FOX 19’s Jeremy Rauch. Don’t forget, Kirkpatrick also said, “we...

Carl Lawson gets teeth knocked out in Bengals’ win over Browns

"When I was bringing him (Kizer) down, I just see my teeth in the air for like two seconds. I was like, 'Holy crap.'" I’m not sure if an NFL player can be on an injury report with a ‘tooth’ injury, but Carl Lawson is a candidate for it. In the Cincinnati Bengals’ Week 4 demolition of the Cleveland Browns, Lawson saw his teeth take some damage, which made for a good laugh by his teammates.

Bengals lose Ryan Hewitt and T.J. Johnson to injury

The Bengals lose two starters during their domination of the Browns. The Cincinnati Bengals seemingly had everything going right for them against the Cleveland Browns, but they may have lost a pair of starters to injury. It came when h-back Ryan Hewitt was injured after a low hit to his knee by Browns safety Jabrill Peppers. Hewitt had caught 16-yard pass to the Cincinnati 41-yard line before being hit by Peppers. The play started a drive that resulted in a 41-yard field goal by Randy Bullock, giving the Bengals a 24-0 lead. Hewitt left the game, was examined by trainers and was later...

Not a great day to be a Browns fan. Embarrassing. The patrons of FirstEnergy Stadium could only watch and boo as the Cleveland Browns were taken to task by the Cincinnati Bengals, 31-7. For the third straight week, the Browns saw the opposition claim a double-digit lead heading into halftime. Another fun fact: The Browns have outscored foes 35-16 in the second half this season.
