BENGALS ...16 BROWNS ...7

Newcomer Larry Johnson rushed for 107 yards in Cincinnati's conservative approach, and the Bengals completed their first division sweep. The Bengals went 6-0 in the division with a retooled run-first offense and a stout defense that has carried them into first place. They rushed for 210 yards, with Johnson - signed less than two weeks ago as insurance - subbing for Cedric Benson, out for the second straight week with an injured hip. The Browns reached double-digit losses for the eighth time in their 11 years as an expansion team. Cincinnati now has the longest stretch of domination in the series' history, winning nine of the past 11 games.
