CLEVELAND — Brian Hoyer and the Cleveland Browns seemed to have picked up where they left off last week.

Hoyer, making his second straight start for the Browns, led Cleveland to a victory over the Bengals with a final score of 17-6.

It started when he took the team down the field on a 12-play, 95-yard drive which ended with a Jordan Cameron TD catch giving the Browns a 7-0 lead.

On the ensuing kickoff, the Browns squib kicked it, giving Cincinnati great field position.

The Browns defense held Andy Dalton and the Bengals to a field goal making it a 7-3 game.

Cleveland had another drive in the second quarter that ended in Cincinnati territory after great catches by Devone Bess and Josh Gordon.

Kicker Billy Cundiff, who has been bothered by a sore quad all week, missed a short field goal to keep the score 7-3 in favor of the Browns.

The Bengals had a drive of their own in Browns territory and on 4th down and 1, Cincinnati went for it and Desmond Bryant made a huge stop, forcing the Bengals to turn over the ball on downs.

The Browns, without any timeouts left, marched down the field and tried to add a field goal before the half, but Cundiff missed a 49-yard attempt and the first half came to a close with the Browns leading 7-3.

The defensive tug-o-war game continued in the third quarter. The Bengals had three drives; one ended in a 43-yard field goal for Cincinnati.

The Browns had three drives in the third quarter and one drive also ended on a Billy Cundiff field goal of 51-yards.

The Browns led 10-6 after three quarters.

The team tacked on another 7 in the 4th when Chris Ogbannaya scored to boost the Browns to the 17-6 lead and final score.
