Cincinnati, OH-- 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.
After throwing four interceptions in his first career start, Weeden stayed turnover-free on Sunday, completing 26-of-37 pass attempts for 322 yards and two scores. Richardson ran 19 times for 109 yards and a touchdown, and added another score on 23-yard reception.
