Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns Preview
The Battle of Ohio headlines Thursday Night Football this week as the Bengals and Browns both hope to bounce back from Week 1 defeats.
Cincinnati showed plenty of promise last week against the Chargers and were unlucky not to tie the game on Randy Bullock’s late field goal with only seconds remaining.
Meanwhile, in Baltimore, things weren’t quite so close between the Browns and Ravens.
Cleveland surrendered 24 points in the first half on their way to a lacklustre 38-6 defeat in Kevin Stefanski’s first game as head coach.
The Browns secondary was torched by Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown, while Alex Van Pelt’s offence turned the ball over three times.
Cincinnati famously earned their second win in the final game of the season against the Browns last year, and it’s safe to say the Bengals are well and truly a live chance based on last week’s performance.
While Joe Burrow failed to throw a touchdown on debut, he did show plenty of poise leading his team down the field to set up a potential game-tying field goal.
A.J. Green, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Boyd all combined for 13 receptions against the Chargers – an encouraging sign for the Bengals against what is a very questionable Browns defence.
Cincinnati has covered in four of their last five away games against the Browns, so don’t be surprised if they give this a good shake.
