Bengals shock Browns in season opener, 27-17

Rookie wide receiver A.J. Green caught Cleveland’s secondary napping to score his first career catch, a 41-yard touchdown from backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski as the Cincinnati Bengals spoiled a sloppy debut by Cleveland under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

The Bengals won 27-17.

Gradkowski, who played for the Browns in 2008, came on in relief of injured rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, called for a quick snap as the Browns were still trying to figure out the Bengals offensive alignment, lobbed the ball to Green, who scored with 4:31 to go in the game and shocked the Browns and all the fans in Cleveland Stadium.

The Browns fell to 1-12 in season openers since their return to the NFL in 1999.

Another bright spot was Bengals running back Cedric Benson, who rushed for 121 yards and cemented the game with a 39-yard run down the right sideline for a TD with 1:49 to play.

Dalton, the Bengals rookie QB, looked good in the team’s first three drives. The second-round pick from TCU, took advantage of good field position to help the team to a 13-0 lead; two Mike Nugent field goals of 24 and 47 yards and a 2-yard TD pass to tight end Jermaine Gresham.

But the Browns came alive in the second quarter after a long Joshua Cribbs kickoff return.

Cleveland QB Colt McCoy threw a 34-yard TD pass to tight end Benjamin Watson halfway through the second quarter for their first score.

McCoy then threw a 56-yard completion to Mohammed Massaquoi, the longest pass of his career, set up a 2-yard TD to tight end Evan Moore, three plays later and the Browns led 14-13.

McCoy, is the Browns’ eighth different opening-game QB in the last nine seasons.

The Browns led 14-13 at the half despite shooting itself in the foot with 10 penalties for 67 yards. While the Bengals were concered about their rookie QB Dalton, who had his right wrist injured in the second quarter. Although X-rays did not show anything severe at halftime, the Bengals coaching staff turned to the veteran Gradkowski, who had looked very capable as a backup during the preseason.

Dalton looked very poised and under control in his NFL debut. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 81 yards for a TD and a quarterback rating of 102.4.

During the game, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis became the longest tenured coach in team history when he began his ninth season with the team. He passed owner and founder Paul Brown (1969-75) and Sam Wyche (1984-91). He will soon become the winningest coach in franchise history.

The Bengals played the game without starting offensive guard Bobbie Williams, who is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy against using performance enhancing substances.

Bengals and OL Bobbie Williams agree on deal; contract will be signed Friday

compiled from staff and wire reports

Bengals right guard Bobbie Williams and the team have agreed on a new two-year deal, his agent Tony Agnone said earlier in the week. The contract will be signed on Friday.

Williams, who will be starting his 11th season, came to Cincinnati in 2004 and has played 95 of a possible 98 games. The only three he has missed were due to an emergency appendectomy in 2006. He was the only member of the offensive line in 2009 who started in the same position as 2008.

Williams had a base salary of $2.4 million last year and will make a little closer to $3 million per year with his new deal.

At right guard, Williams shored up that side of the line and was one of only seven Bengals to start every game. He was part of a line that produced a team record eight 100-yard games rushing in 2009 and allowed only 29 sacks which was ninth least in the NFL.
