The Bengals traveled to Cleveland on September 11, 2011 to play the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North Division rivalry showdown. In a game where Gradkowski had to step in for the injured Anndy Dalton, who left in the 2nd quarter when the Bengals were trailing 13-14. Gradkowski got the call and took advantage of unorganized secondary by hitting the 4th overall pick in the 2011 draft, A.J. Green with a 37-yard strike. A.J. Green was wide open running down the right side-line. In addition to that, the Bengals pass rush and run defense held strong, and Cedric Benson was able to seal the deal with a 39 yard touchdown late in the game. Cedric Benson was the player of the game in my opinion.
Next week the Bengals hit the road again to take on the Denver Broncos. Stay Tuned to Bengals360 to find out the latest in regards to Dalton’s status, game previews, and other updates on the Cincinnati Bengals.
