The defense played well and the offense did just enough
This promising Cleveland Browns season ended Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals as they won 21-16 and finished the year at 8-9.
The Browns expanded their lead to 14-0 after they had another nice six-play drive mixing the run and pass and eventually scored on running back D’Ernest Johnson’s four-yard scamper for a touchdown.
Cleveland Browns turnovers threatened to wreck the day
Things looked good for Cleveland at that point, but then the wheels started falling off, especially for Keenum.
Then on a drive right before halftime, Keenum marched the team down to the goal line, but he threw an interception in the endzone and ended a chance for the team to expand the lead.
The second half wasn’t much better for the Browns offense.
