CLEVELAND - - While Bengals quarterback Joe Tunnel couldn't get his high-flying offense on target Monday night at FirstEnergy Arena,
Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett controlled Cleveland to the 32-13 AFC North triumph they seriously required.
Terminating Tunnel multiple times and blanking him in the initial 3/4,
The Browns snapped their four-game series of failures and left the 4-4 Bengals winless in three AFC North challenges.
Down 25-0, Tunnel tossed score passes of 13 yards to wide collector Tyler Boyd and 41 to a leap ball challenging Tee Higgins.
It was short of what was needed as Tunnel completed 25 of 35 for 223 yards and none of his hotshot collectors had north of 50.
Trouble usually rolls in by the truckload. After a high snap, kicker Evan McPherson missed an additional point after the principal score.
Wearing down at last made up for lost time to the Bengals' dash of not permitting a final part score.
During the game they lost beginning cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (knee), and his reinforcement
Tre Blossoms left with a hamstring injury late in the second from last quarter after Brissett pronounced battle on the limping optional.
