Thoughts from the third quarter vs. the Bengals

By Pat McManamon Published: September 16, 2007

Browns 41, Bengals 38

First down -- Hate to start the second half with an interception on the first play, but that's what happened. But the Browns defense does a good job holding the Bengals to a field goal.
Second down -- Another good drive by the Browns after they hold Cincinnati to a field goal, with Kellen Winslow converting a key third down before a 32-yard score to Braylon Edwards. This is the team we were told about prior to the season.
Third down -- The Browns are using Winslow effectively as a third receiver on third down. Which is smart in a game that is pretty much defenseless.
Fourth down -- Cincinnati responds with a touchdown. Someone in the press box looked up and said, "This is like a MAC game."
Fifth down (bear with us) -- Jamal Lewis runs through a huge hole for 66 yards and a score. Browns lead 41-31. At this point you wonder if the first one to 50 wins.
Sixth down (hang in) -- As Cincinnati drives again, the same guy looked up and said, "This is like a high school game." Doesn't matter if it's like grade school if it's a win.
Seventh down -- Palmer throws his fifth touchdown pass. Now 41-38. First one to 50 does win.
Eighth down -- Both teams could have used Donald Rumsfeld for this game.
