A corner blitz by Chris Owens forced a sack, strip, and recovery by the Browns' defense to start the third quarter. Starting with good field position, the Browns had two penalties in a row that stalled the drive immediately, forcing a punt. The defense forced a three-and-out, and after a punt, Cleveland had the ball at midfield again.
After missing two field goals in the second quarter, the Browns tried a 51-yard field goal, and he made it to give Cleveland a full touchdown lead at 10-3. The Bengals responded with a field goal to close out the third quarter. Can the Browns hang on to their 10-6 lead to close out the game?
