Browns Vs. Bengals Score: Pacman Jones' Punt Return Gives Cincinnati Lead

The Cleveland Browns trail the Cincinnati Bengals 7-3 going into the second quarter after giving up a touchdown off a punt return.

Less than two minutes had expired in the game before the Bengals got on the scoreboard. After a four-play drive by Cleveland, a 53-yard punt by Reggie Hodges was taken by Adam Jones at the Browns' 19-yard line and returned for a touchdown with 13:13 to play in the first quarter.

Cleveland responded on the next drive starting with a 38-yard kick return by Josh Cribbs. From the Browns' 36-yard line, a nine-play drive led to a Phil Dawson field goal from the 50-yard line to put Cleveland on the scoreboard.

Browns running back Trent Richardson has a solid start to the day with seven carries for 26 yards.
