Richardson scored his first career touchdown on a 32-yard gallop in the second quarter, and he has 13 carries for 84 yards through the first two quarters. Phil Dawson got the first score for Cleveland, nailing a 50-yard field goal in the first quarter after a short drive was sparked by a 38-yard return by Josh Cribbs.
Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has looked better after a rough first outing. He has completions on 9-of-15 passes for 121 yards without a turnover.
But the Bengals have kept it somewhat even on offense. Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown for 104 yards on 9-of-14 passing, and he hit A.J. Green on a 10-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter.
The Browns have more than doubled up the Bengals on the ground with 101 rushing yards to Cincinnati's 48.
