Defensive tackle Devon Still's 4-year-old daughter got one of the biggest cheers on a cold, windy night Thursday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Leah Still was on the field after the first quarter when the Cincinnati Bengals presented Children's Hospital with a check for more than $1 million to help with cancer research and treatment. The girl is being treated for cancer.

She was released from a hospital in Philadelphia and flew to Cincinnati to see her father play for the first time, sitting in an overhead suite for most of the game against Cleveland.

Still wrote "Leah Strong" on his eye black strips. Police officers working the game wore his uniform No. 73 on their backs.
