Bad Snap Seals Loss For Cleveland In Cincinnati as Bengals Win 23-20

For the 2nd time in three weeks, the Browns were the victim of a bad snap. This time it came as kicker Phil Dawson was looking to attempt a 55-yard field goal that would have given Cleveland a 23-20 lead with just less than 2 minutes left.

Instead, long snapper Ryan Pontbriand rolled the snap back, and Dawson missed the long kick. Bengals QB Andy Dalton then went to work, hitting WR A.J. Green for a 51-yard gain that set up kicker Mike Nugent for a 26-yard field goal that won the game with :38 seconds left.

Cleveland led the game 17-7 at the half, but their offense went into a shell in the second half, as they scored just three points while Dalton and the Bengals rallied for their 7th win against four losses.

The Browns fall to 4-7 on the season, and will be at home for the Ravens next week. The Bengals are still in the hunt for a playoff spot in the AFC, and remain back of the Ravens and Steelers in the North.
