CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals – both suffering very disappointing losses in week 8 – fought it out in today’s critical week 9 “Battle of Ohio.”

The Browns earned their first division win of the season Sunday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium.


4:10 p.m.: The Cleveland Browns win!

4:02 p.m.: With just a little more than 2 minutes to go, Browns take out their starting quarterback out and bring in Case Keenum.

3:54 p.m.: Baker Mayfield smiled after throwing a clean touchdown pass to David Njoku and then an extra point was good, so the score now stands 41-16.

3:48 p.m.: Troy Hill makes Browns history with three sacks in a game.

3:40 p.m.: The Browns miss a field goal and our score stays the same.

3:28 p.m.: In the fourth quarter and the Bengals are able to score a touchdown, but are not successful on a 2-point attempt. The score is now 34-16.

3:08 p.m. McLaughlin’s 24-yard field goal is good.

3:05 p.m. Another turnover! Burrow’s pass intended for Chase was intercepted by Johnson.

2:58 p.m. Touchdown Browns! Chubb for a 70-yard touchdown!

2:51 p.m. This marks Garrett’s 12th sack of the season

2:46 p.m. The two Ohio teams are back at it for the second half. Mayfield was sacked for -7 yards. Then moments later Garrett sacks Burrows for -6 yards.

2:27 p.m. McPherson’s 27-yard field goal is good. Browns still in the lead 24-10. That’s the half!

2:06 p.m. McLaughlin’s 28-yard field goal is good. Browns lead 24-7

1:40 p.m. Nick Chubb with a 1-yard TD. Browns lead 14-7

1:36 p.m.

1:25 p.m. Cincinnati ties it up with a touchdown and an extra point; Joe Mixon for 11 yards.

1:11 p.m. Touchdown Browns! Denzel Ward with the second longest interception in Browns history. 99 yards!

1:00 p.m.

Another loss the Browns have to contend with is the team’s release of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Friday.

After a roller coaster of a week, Coach Stefanski said after Friday’s practice: “I think all of us have to move forward and we have a challenge on Sunday right in front of us and Baker (Mayfield) had a good week of practice and I think he’s ready to go.”

“I think the guys understand that we have a very, very big football game on Sunday against a really good team and we have to focus there, understand what’s going on on the outside… We all have to do our job. And that’s a pretty simple way of looking at it.”
