Battle of Ohio won by Browns

09/30/2013 08:31 AM

The Cleveland Browns dominated the 80th Battle of Ohio on Sunday, beating the Bengals 17-6. Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for two touchdowns, finishing his second start 25 of 38 for 269 yards and no interceptions. Hoyer’s first touchdown pass went to Jordan Cameron, who had 10 catches for 91 yards Sunday.

Cincinnati struggled to make anything happen offensively, as Cleveland held them to just 63 yards rushing and no touchdowns. Joe Haden was able to contain AJ Green who had seven catches for 51 yards. Andy Dalton’s interception with 3:43 left in the game ended any chance the Bengals had for a comeback. He finished 23 of 42 for 206 yards.

The Bengals had a chance to take a one game lead in the division with a win, but instead fall to 2-2 for a 3-way tie with the Browns and Baltimore Ravens. Next week, Tom Brady and the Patriots come to town as Cincinnati takes on New England at home.
