Pretty impressive win tonight for the Cleveland Browns — but equally clearly, a stunningly bad performance for the Cincinnati Bengals . . . and especially QB Andy Dalton.
I’m not saying the Browns are world-beaters, but they beat the Bengals thoroughly and convincingly. The Bengals lost at home for the first time in years, and the Browns won a division game on the road for the first time in forever. The Browns D shut down the Bengals and forced a lot of turnovers, and the offense ran the ball when out had to do so — and now the Browns are tied for first in the AFC North. Great games for Joe Haden, Buster Skrine, the entire Browns defense, the offensive line, the running backs, and Brian Hoyer. Oh, and the coaching staff did a pretty good job, too.
Hey, am I dreaming? And is Andy Dalton having a nightmare?
