Tilted Brush Stroke
2022 NFL, Browns win against Bengals on Monday night.
Joe Burrow, the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, has lost all four of his career encounters with the Bengals.
The Browns are beginning to resemble the second half of the 2021 season after six weeks of poor defensive play.
The defence forced two Burrow turnovers and hampered a Weeks 4-7 offence that averaged almost 300 passing yards.
Cleveland performs best when it keeps the ball on the ground, as their 172 running yards on Monday night attested to.
If Cincinnati wants to contend in the AFC, it must steer clear of performances like this one.
Amari Cooper caught three crucial passes that significantly impacted Cleveland's final score.
He gained 27 yards on a crossing pattern for the first one, then a few seconds later scored a toe-tapping touchdown.
Finally, Cooper made a diving 53-yard grab while facing third-and-long after splitting two defenders downfield.
