Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Andy Dalton threw for 318 yards with three touchdowns, as the Cincinnati Bengals held off the Cleveland Browns, 34-27, at Paul Brown Stadium.
A.J. Green caught seven passes for 58 yards and a score, while Brandon Tate and Andrew Hawkins each caught a touchdown pass for the Bengals (1-1), who rebounded from Monday's 44-13 pounding in Baltimore with their seventh win in the last eight meetings with the Browns.
Cleveland rookies Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson also bounced back nicely from poor performances in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but their efforts were not enough, as the Browns (0-2) never led.
