Teams: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns
Result: 58-48, Bengals
MVPs: Kelly Holcomb, Carson Palmer, Rudi Johnson
The Browns and the Bengals had fairly unspectacular years in 2004. Cleveland would end up finishing 4-12 while Cincinnati was stuck at a middling 8-8. However, for one game during the season, when the two matched up against one another in late November, they both looked like playoff caliber teams. Carson Palmer threw for four touchdowns, while Browns quarterback Kelly Holcomb tossed five TDs of his own along with over 400 yards. Meanwhile, Rudi Johnson ran wild over Cleveland, picking up 202 yards rushing and two touchdowns for the Bengals.
