Browns vs. Bengals 2013 results: Cincinnati rolls to easy 41-20 win

After falling behind early, the Bengals rallied back to take firm control of the AFC North.

The Cincinnati Bengals improved to 7-4 and took firm control of the AFC North on Sunday, coming from behind to dominate the Cleveland Browns en route to a 41-20 win Sunday afternoon.

The Browns jumped out to a 13-0 lead after cornerback Joe Haden jumped on Andy Dalton's pass for a 29-yard pick-six.

Things would go the Bengals' way from then on out. Dalton responded later in the first half, throwing a pair of scores to open the second quarter. His first went to Jermaine Gresham, who caught a pass along the sideline and made an acrobatic turn to go in for a 25-yard score. The Bengals then took a one-point lead when Dalton hit Mohamed Sanu from six yards out.

Special teams and defense then took turns putting points up for the Bengals. They blocked a punt in the second quarter, and special teamer Tony Dye scooped the ball and scored from 24 yards out. On the ensuing possession, linebacker Vontaze Burfict grabbed a fumble by Chris Ogbonnaya and rumbled for a 13-yard score to put the Bengals up 31-13 heading into halftime.

A 74-yard touchdown from Jason Campbell to Josh Gordon was the only highlight in the second half for the Browns, who fall to 4-6 with the loss.

Did they cover?

The Bengals came in favored by 4½ points, according to, and easily covered with the big win.
