For the first time since 2004, the Cleveland Browns won a home opener as they dominated the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday 24 to 3 at Cleveland Browns stadium.

New defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s defense held $275 million dollar quarterback Joe Burrow to a career low 82 yards passing and Cincinnati‘s offense to 142 total yards.
While he struggled throwing the ball in the wet and rainy conditions, Browns quarterback, Deshaun Watson threw for 1 touchdown, ran for 1 td and scored on a 2-point conversion.
Teammate Nick Chubb added 106 yards rushing.
New kicker Dustin Hopkins connected on all 3 of his field goals and an extra point as the special teams played a big factor in the win.
The only real bad news from the opening day win was that starting right tackle Jack Conklin suffered a significant knee injury and the team said they will know more tomorrow on how serious that injury is.
Next up for Cleveland, a road contest at Pittsburgh next Monday night.
The Steelers dropped their opening game of the season at home to the San Francisco 49ers 30–7.
