BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Derek Anderson will start at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against Cincinnati.

Coach Eric Mangini has decided to go with Anderson, a Pro Bowler in 2007, over Brady Quinn, who opened the season as Cleveland's starter but was benched at halftime last Sunday in Baltimore.

Mangini believes the Browns have a better chance to move the ball with Anderson.

Mangini spent the entire training camp deciding on a quarterback before picking Quinn over Anderson. But after Quinn threw an interception on the Browns' first possession on Sunday, Mangini benched Quinn after just 10 quarters this season and inserted Anderson.

Anderson had more success moving Cleveland's offense but threw three picks in the 34-3 loss to the Ravens.
