On The Mark 11.6.15: Cleveland #Browns @ #Bengals Recap

Pathetic second half by the Browns leads to 31-10 disaster against the undefeated Bengals
By @MarkW2112

Johnny Manziel looked good in the first half, but like last week, the Browns seemed to give up in the second half and give the game to the Cincinnati Bengals, 31-10.  Andy Dalton was nearly flawless, throwing for 3 touchdowns to Tyler Eifert.  Manziel had 1 touchdown to Duke Johnson at the end of the first half.  The Browns offense was summed up by Taylor Gabriel's 4 dropped passes.

The Browns defense, once again, did absolutely nothing to stop the run or on third down.  Dalton was able to have his way along with Jeremy Hill and Giovanni Benard running the ball at will against the Browns.  

My take:  The Browns are done.  The season is over.  It will be interesting to see if Jimmy Haslam makes drastic changes before then.  Especially with Jim O'Neil's awful defense.

Player of the game:  Andy Dalton, who went 21 of 27 for 234 yards and 3 touchdowns.  He was precise and played like he hasn't in the past few years.

Next game:  Against the dreaded Steelers, November 15 in Pittsburgh
