    This game can be wrapped up in two words. Peyton Freakin Hillis. He was a beast. He ran for 240 yards and 4 touchdowns on 19 carries. He opened the game up with an 80 yard touchdown run on off tackle run, the Bengals came with a blitz and the Browns O-line picked it up and Hillis hit the hole and didn't stop until he crossed the goalline. The Browns D forced the Bengals to punt on the next drive and McCoy took over the next drive as he threw for 75 yards going 6 of 8. The drive was capped with a 19 yard strike to Ben Watson. The Browns take a 14-0 lead in the second quarter.

    The Bengals took a drive to the Browns 27 yard line and Mike Nugent added 3 points with a 44 yard field goal. Four plays latter the Browns were back into the endzone with a Hillis 2 yard plunge. The drive was highlighted with a 53 yard catch by newly signed Antwaan Randle El. 21-3 Browns
    Another stalled drive for the Bengals and another touchdown run for Hillis, this time for 68 yards. 28-3 Browns
    The Bengals finally get a taste of the endzone when Colt McCoy old favorite target Jordan Shipley caught a 21 yard TD. 28-10 Browns at the half.

    The Bengals took the opening drive of the second quarter down to the Browns 18 but on a third and 2 when Dalton took a sack for a 6 yard loss. Cincinnati settled for another Nugent fieldgoal this time from 41 yards out. 28-13 Browns.
    The Browns answered the Bengals score with a nice long drive of their own capped with a 2 yard TD run by Hillis. 35-13 Browns.

    The fourth quarter only saw Cincinnati score 7 on a 66 yard pass to Gresham as the Browns sat Hillis for most of the fourth quarter and couldn't muster many yards on the ground with Hardesty.

    Cleveland Browns win 35-20
