Bengals score 31 in 2nd quarter, beat Browns 41-20

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and Cincinnati returned a blocked punt and a fumble for touchdowns during a 31-point second quarter that set a Bengals record and swept the AFC North leaders to a 40-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

The Bengals (7-4) head into their bye week with their division lead intact. They'd lost their last two games in overtime, tying the NFL record and allowing the Browns (4-6) to draw close.

The biggest quarter in club history left this one in hand by halftime. It ended as the most lopsided game in the intrastate series since Cincinnati's 30-0 win in Cleveland in 2006.

Dalton had a horrid start that helped Cleveland get a promising early lead. He threw two passes that were picked off by Joe Haden, who ran one of them back 29 yards for a touchdown and a 13-0 lead in the first quarter.

When the quarter ended, Cleveland fell apart.
