Bengals getting blown out through three quarters

View Caption Hide Caption

The Cincinnati Bengals are 13-70-1 under Marvin Lewis when trailing after three quarters, which is exactly where they find themselves tonight.

Cleveland has dominated the 82nd Battle of Ohio from the opening series and has a 24-3 lead with 15 minutes to go.

The Browns have outgained the Bengals 323 to 112, and if their 21-point lead holds, it will be the Bengals most lopsided loss to their in-state rival since 1994 when Cleveland trounced Cincinnati 37-13.

Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton is just 7 of 24 for 55 yards with one interception and a 22.2 passer rating.

Cleveland quarterback Brian Hoyer is 14 of 22 for 190 yards, but it’s been the Browns running game, which has been non-existent the last three games, doing all of the damage.

Terrance West has run for two touchdowns and Isaiah Crowell has one as Cleveland has 134 yards on the ground after gaining only 89 in its last two games combined.
