Browns – Bengals (32-13): Jacoby Brissett and Nick Chubb revive Cleveland

Cleveland Browns (3-5) – Cincinnati Bengals (4-4): 32-13

On this Halloween day to end this week 8, what could be better than 2 teams where the color orange is predominant. The Cincinnati Bengals were on the road to the Cleveland Browns in a division duel.

In the absence of his favorite receiver Ja’Marr Chase, Joe Burrow (25/35, 232 YDS, 2 TDs, 1 INT) often found himself in difficulty (5 sacks) despite flattering statistics. Opposite, Jacoby Brissett (17/22, 278 YDS, 1 TD + 1 TD on the run) performs his best game of the season by making a very clean copy.

For this, he was able to count on the man of the match, running back Nick Chubb (23 runs, 101 YDS, 2 TDs), authors of his 9th and 10th touchdowns of the season. The 2 men allow Cleveland to stop a nasty series of 4 consecutive defeats.

Action, but 0 points

While Cincinnati started the match very well, Joe Burrow saw his pass to Tee Higgins being intercepted by AJ Green near the red zone. The cornerback starts the game for his team but Cade York sees his field goal being blocked by BJ Hill after a good offensive series from Cleveland.

A sack from Myles Garrett and an interception from Vonn Bell on a pass from Amari Cooper later, the 2 teams neutralized each other in a lively but scoreless 1st quarter.

Unexploited bullet losses

We must therefore wait for the 2nd quarter to see the first points. A touchdown on the ground signed Nick Chubb following a formation Wildcat (direct snap to the running back), converted to 2 points by the latter.

Then, Sione Takitaki causes a loss of ball which Cleveland does not benefit from since Akeem Davis-Gaither recovers a fumble from Jacoby Brissett, provoked by Von Bell. But this time, it’s Cincinnati who does not benefit since the kicker Evan McPherson will be in check.

This failure has consequences since Cade York manages a field goal from 55 yards which allows Cleveland to widen the gap before halftime (11-0). This is the first time this season that Cincinnati does not score in the first half.

Cleveland imposes its law

The 2nd half will be of another intensity where Cleveland will end up making the difference. While we were waiting for Nick Chubb, it was finally Jacoby Brissett who allowed the Browns to widen the gap on a 3-yard run. The Browns quarterback then finds Amari Cooper (5 REC, 131 YDS, 1 TD), who put down Tre Flowers to make it 25-0 before the Browns superstar running back scored his 2nd touchdown of the night to seal the win. victory for Kevin Stefanski’s men.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati had reduced the gap by Tyler Boyd then Tee Higgins on 2 passes from Joe Burrow. Unfortunately, the Bengals were going too far to worry about the Browns who were sure of their strength in this match.

In the end, without Ja’Marr Chase, Zac Taylor’s men never found a way to threaten Cleveland. Which can be worrying for the future since the receiver could still be on the flank for a few more weeks.
