      The Bengals recovered three fumbles, their most in a span of 42 games,                                                 The Bengals rolled for a season-high 413 net yards on offense but could
and also had a interception by CB Leon Hall as they held off winless Carolina to                                       not overcome a minus-one turnover differential and a subpar performance in the

struggled for much of the game, including two first-half INTs, but QB Carson                                           penetrated the Browns 20-yard line, scoring just one red-zone TD. The Bengals
Palmer hit three consecutive completions on a fourth-quarter drive, including a                                        made up an early 10-0 deficit, tying the score at 10-10 with 3:30 left in the
seven-yard TD to HB Cedric Benson, to essentially ice the game at 20-7. Benson                                         second quarter, but the Browns counterpunched for a 23-10 lead before

in the same game since HB Corey Dillon in 2001. The TD reception was the first                                         penalty against WR Chad Ochocinco and a sack of QB Carson Palmer pushed
of Benson’s NFL career. The Bengals improved to 2-1 on the season, and                                                 the Bengals out of FG range, and the Browns ran out the clock after a Bengals
