» On the go-ahead 41-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver
"We lined up pretty quick," Gradkowski said. "The defense wasn't set. A.J. made a great play. I would have been pretty upset with myself if I didn't make that play. That was the easiest touchdown ever. I was looking for a flag."
» Green on the frustration of not having a catch before the touchdown:
"I'll take this one. I'd rather have this than a 100-yard game or anything else."
» Defensive tackle
"It gives you a pretty big chip on your shoulder. It makes you angry. It makes you want to prove everybody wrong, and that's what we did today. The game plan was to shut down (Peyton Hillis) and to get in (Browns QB Colt) McCoy's face. It was good to see him lying on the ground a couple of times, especially in the fourth quarter."
» Left tackle
» All three Bengals touchdowns came on third-down plays, including the game-sealing 39-yard score by runing back
"You have to give credit to the offensive line on that one. Nobody touched me," Benson said.
» Gradkowski on the running game:
"I'm really excited about the way we ran the ball. Our offensive line was tremendous. They really wanted it."
