Browns quarterback Jason Campbell says there's no time to dwell on Sunday's "weird" loss in Cincinnati. Not with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming to town.

The Browns jumped to a 13-0 lead against the Bengals before Cleveland came unglued, botching two punts and allowing a fumble to be returned for a touchdown. Cincinnati scored 31 straight points in the second quarter on the way to a 41-20 win. Campbell said "everything went wrong" but that it's imperative the Browns (4-6) regroup quickly or they'll lose again.

Campbell threw three interceptions and was deeply disappointed in his performance. Campbell said he "was hard on myself" for two days, but is confident he and his teammates will bounce back against the Steelers (4-6), who have some momentum after starting the season 0-4.
