WR Josh Gordon Catches 71-Yard Touchdown (VIDEO)

With the Cleveland Browns facing a 7-0 deficit at the start of the second quarter, they struck back to tie the game at 7-7. On third down, QB Brandon Weeden dropped back and found WR Josh Gordon deep. Gordon made a nice one-handed grab and ran the rest of the way to complete a 71-yard touchdown.


Fujita, Rubin Among Browns' Inactives vs. Bengals

The Cleveland Browns have named the following players inactive for today's game against the Cincinnati Bengals: WR Mohamed Massaquoi, WR Travis Benjamin, OL Ryan Miller, DT Ahtyba Rubin, LB Scott Fujita, and S Tashaun Gipson, and CB Dimitri Patterson.

TE Alex Smith is active for the first time since Week 2, when he suffered a concussion against the Bengals. LB D'Qwell Jackson is active and will start after suffering a concussion against the Giants last week. CB Joe Haden will return from his four-game suspension and is expected to shadow WR A.J. Green most of the game. RB Brandon Jackson is also active, probably due to how many players were already ruled out this week.

With Fujita out, reports indicate that rookie LB James-Michael Johnson will make his first career start at outside linebacker. The fourth-round pick was expected to contend for the starting role at the start of the season until he suffered a rib/oblique injury. This will be the first action that Johnson sees on defense this season. LB L.J. Fort is expected to shift back into his role as the backup middle linebacker, with LB Craig Robertson pairing up with Jackson in nickel back sets. DT John Hughes is expected to start in place of Rubin.


High Wind, Warm Temps for Bengals vs. Browns

The Cleveland Browns have had to deal with rain during their past several games, and they are going to have to battle some conditions today against the Cincinnati Bengals as well.

First, it is about 70 degrees in Cleveland, which is the warmest it has been in the city for a few weeks. Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 72 degrees. There will also be swirling gusts of wind up to 23-24 miles per hour, which are expected to affect the kicking game. As good as Phil Dawson is, if he can't hit his kicks consistently during pregame, don't be surprised if the Browns punt the ball or go for it on fourth down in some situations.

According to Intellicast, their is a 0% chance of precipitation at the start of the game. That increases to 10% and 20% over the next two hours. Finally, at 4:00 PM, which could be right near the end of the fourth quarter, the chances of precipitation increase up to 50% to 60%. Clouds are expected to hover over the stadium for most of the game.
