(CINCINNATI) — The Bengals (7-4) used a 31-point second quarter to put away the Cleveland Browns (4-6) in their 40-21 win on Sunday.
Andy Dalton tossed two touchdown passes and the special teams returned a punt and a fumble for the touchdown in the second quarter.
“This is an urgent month for us coming up. First, we had to take care of November. We have bigger fish to fry,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said.
Dalton finished with three touchdown passes and threw for just 93 yards in the victory.
“I hope I am looking back from somewhere in New York City. I think that is the thing that our guys have in their mind, to win every game that we can,” Lewis said of the big second quarter.
Browns quarterback Jason Campbell threw for 248 yards with three interceptions and a touchdown in the loss.
