Bengals running back Jeremy Hill: Browns 'worse than I thought'
The Browns now have a share of the lead in the AFC North after dominating the Bengals on Thursday night, using a bruising rushing attack and forcing three Cincinnati turnovers. With the victory, Cleveland broke a 17-game road losing streak to AFC North opponents.
Hill, who had 55 yards in the 24-3 loss, wasn’t very impressed with Cleveland.
"Oh no, not at all. They're probably worse than I thought, to be honest with you,” Hill said to ESPN.com.
Cincinnati (5-3-1) only had 165 yards of total offense, and Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed just 10 of his 33 passing attempts, was picked off three times and sacked twice.
Again, Hill said that the loss was more about the Bengals making mistakes than anything that Cleveland did.
"Those guys, they're not that good," Hill said. "It was on us [Thursday]. We gave them the game, in my opinion. They didn't do anything special. We just gave them the game. They just sat back with coverage the whole day. They didn't do anything special to me. I mean, respect to them, they won the game. But that's all I'll give them."
The teams next meet in Cleveland on Dec. 14.
