Cincinnati, OH -- In what was likely his final season as quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, Andy Dalton threw for a touchdown and ran for a touchdown in his farewell. Andy Dalton and the Bengals rode the coattails of Joe Mixon, who rushed for 162 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 33-23 victory over the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Following just their second win of the season, the Bengals matched their worst record in their 52-year franchise history, and have locked down the number one spot in the upcoming NFL draft. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton found C.J. Uzomah for a 15-yard touchdown pass and scrambled for a 5-yard touchdown run to give the Bengals a 20-16 lead in the first half, which was the most points the Bengals had scored in the first half all season.

The Cleveland Browns looked like they did not want to be in Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday afternoon against a 1-win Bengals team. Mayfield was inconsistent behind a struggling offensive line, being sacked six times and throwing three interceptions. Cleveland struggled to get the run game going against the 32nd ranked rush defense in the NFL, as Chubb and Hunt finished the game with a combined 70 yards on 17 carries. Jarvis Landry led the Browns in receiving with 82 yards and a touchdown. Odell Beckham also found the end zone on his way to 1,000 yards receiving on the season/ Second-year cornerback Denzel Ward picked off Andy Dalton on a deep ball to the end zone for the Browns lone turnover.

The Cleveland Browns will head to the offseason following a disappointing 6-10 season, and their head coach Freddie Kitchens remains on the hot-seat. Cleveland finished the season in third place in the AFC North. Check out highlights and post game interviews from Sunday's game below!
