Browns end losing skid, 34-24 over Bengals

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Rookie Brandon Weeden threw two touchdown passes and the Cleveland Browns snapped an 11-game losing streak that dated to last season, beating the Cincinnati Bengals 34-24 Sunday.

Cleveland had not won since Nov. 20, matching a franchise record for consecutive losses. But for the first time this season everything fell into place for the Browns (1-5).

Montario Hardesty, filling in for injured rookie Trent Richardson, scored on a 1-yard plunge and cornerback Sheldon Brown intercepted Andy Dalton and returned it 19 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Browns outscored the Bengals (3-3) in the second half 27-10.

It was the first win in nine tries against an AFC North opponent for second-year Browns coach Pat Shurmur.
