Myles Garrett had a sack and a half against Joe Burrow, tackled behind the line of scrimmage on five occasions.

“Myles is in the elite,” Burrow said. You should always be wary of it. »

The Bengals (4-4) totaled only 100 yards in the first half and 229 at the end of the game.

A native of Ohio, Burrow has seen his record against the Browns slip to 0-4 in three seasons.

Jacoby Brissett amassed 278 passing yards for Cleveland (3-5), which ended a streak of four losses (including three by two or three points).

“It was one of those games where we dictated what happened,” Brissett said.

The latter completed a four-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper late in the third quarter, giving the team a 24-0 lead.

“The gap quickly became very big,” Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said. We had no solutions.

“With the pressure they put on the quarter and the quality of their attack on the ground, you have to avoid letting them score twice in a row without replying. »

Brissett also had a three-yard run into the end zone.

Burrow passed for 232 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.

He had to do without a prime target in Ja’Marr Chase, who is injured in the hip.

Cincinnati hadn’t allowed a second-half touchdown in seven games, before allowing three this time around.

The Bengals will play again Sunday afternoon at home against the Carolina Panthers.

The Browns will play their next game on November 13 in Miami.

Four of their next meetings will be abroad.
