On Nov. 28, 2004, the Bengals and Browns combined for 106 points in Cincinnati's 58-48 win at Paul Brown Stadium. It was the highest scoring game by both teams in an NFL game since the 1970 merger, as well as the second highest scoring game in league history.

On Nov. 28, 2004, the Bengals and Browns combined for 106 points in Cincinnati's 58-48 win at Paul Brown Stadium. It was the highest scoring game by both teams in an NFL game since the 1970 merger, as well as the second highest scoring game in league history.

Rudi Johnson had the fifth 200-yard rushing game in club history, Chad Johnson had 117 yards receiving and Carson Palmer threw four TDs for the first time in his career.

"I don't even know what the score was," said Palmer after the Bengals and Browns turned The Battle of Ohio into a video game at Paul Brown Stadium before 65,677 utterly drained and puzzled spectators. "But it was a fun game for a quarterback to be in."

The Bengals went from a 27-13 halftime lead, to down 48-44 with 10:22 left in the game, to Bengals cornerback Deltha O'Neal stepping in front of Browns tight end Aaron Shea and picking off quarterback Kelly Holcomb's pass at the Cleveland 31 for a run-it-back touchdown with 1:43 left.

"There's no need to try to sit here and analyze and be logical about what happened in that second half," said Bengals linebacker Brian Simmons. "That was from somewhere else."

Simmons added, "It was like a pinball machine the way the scoreboard was lighting up. It was a crazy game. I've been here seven years, and I've never been part of a game where there were so many points scored. On a day like this, you just have to be happy that you came out on the winning side."
