CLEVELAND (AP) — Nick Chubb rushed for two touchdowns and Myles Garrett and Cleveland’s defense frustrated Joe Burrow as the Browns thrashed Cincinnati 32-13, keeping the Bengals star quarterback winless against them.

Garrett, who came to FirstEnergy Stadium wearing a Halloween costume, led a scary defense that sacked Burrow five times and held the Bengals to 229 total yards — 100 in the first half.

Burrow has already been to the Super Bowl in just three NFL seasons. However, the Athens County native has yet to beat Cleveland, dropping to 0-4 in four career starts against Cincinnati’s AFC North rival.

The Browns ended a four-game losing streak, and in the process saved their season from slipping away. Jacoby Brissett had a TD run and pass for Cleveland.

Burrow finished the game 25-35 for 232 yards for two touchdowns and an interception.

The Bengals return to action Sunday against the Carolina Panthers (2-6) at Paycor Stadium.
