A 23-yard field goal from Mike Nugent brought the Bengals within a touchdown of the Browns, making the score 17-10.
A mix of runs and passes confounded a Browns defense on the Bengals’ second scoring drive of the game. On the drive, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 45 yards, missing only a throw to the end zone to wide receiver A.J. Green.
On the drive, Browns cornerback Dimitri Patterson was rolled up on by tackle Phil Taylor and his return is unknown. Linebacker Kaluka Maiava also suffered a knee injury on the drive and his return is questionable.
