Anderson rallies Browns to 20-12 win over Bengals

Preview | Box Score | Recap

CINCINNATI (AP)—Derek Anderson’s one good moment was enough to save the Cleveland Browns’ season. Maybe his job, too.

With reserve Brady Quinn ready to take over at any time Sunday, the embattled Anderson did just enough—and it wasn’t much—to rally Cleveland to a 20-12 victory over a winless Cincinnati Bengals team missing its starting quarterback.

Anderson threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards that put the Browns (1-3) ahead to stay in the fourth quarter, his best play on an afternoon that had few of them. Even that moment came with an asterisk: A Bengals penalty wiped out a potential interception on the drive.

Coach Romeo Crennel made it known that Quinn was ready to take over if Anderson struggled again on Sunday.
