The Cleveland Browns dominated the Cinncinati Bengals on Monday Night.
The Cleveland Browns dominated the Cinncinatti Bengals on Halloween night, winning 32-13. it was extremely unexpected, considering the Browns’ woes through the first half of the 2022 season, and how good the Bengals have looked over the last few weeks. Yet, injuries to Ja’Marr Chase and a very terrible offensive line, really led the Bengals to a night full of frights, much to Cleveland’s delight.
The game looked pretty even in the first half, with the Browns and Bengals both pooching away some pretty easy scoring opportunities for a variety of reasons. Missed field goals, blocked field goals, fumbles, interceptions, acts of God; you name it, that’s how the first half went. The Browns went into halftime with a lead of just 11-0.
A very manageable outing for the Bengals to come back from and a lead the Browns would desperately need to protect. The Browns didn’t just try to keep the lead, however, they expanded on it in a big way.
The Browns would add three more touchdowns, and 21 points overall over the last two quarters, posting 32 points with just seven minutes left in the game. The Bengals didn’t go away, not completely, as Joe Burrow finally found some space and threw two touchdowns as the game continued on.
Unfortunately for the Bengals, it came too little, too late and the Browns were able to run the clock out as the game came to a close. The Browns are now 3-5 and not completely out of the playoff race.
Who knows what will happen now, but the team could opt to hang onto guys like Kareem Hunt or Jack Conklin, or they could opt to trade them. Even if they do trade them, that doesn’t mean the team is giving up on the season but only time will tell what happens next.
