Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns Pick, Prediction, and Odds
When you look at the current standings, you'll see that there is one team still remaining in the NFL who has yet to tally a win. This is the Cleveland Browns, and this weekend they are at home against a rival in the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are sitting at 3-2 overall, while the Browns are 0-5 and are hoping to get that first win out from under their belt. It won't be easy to get this win for the Browns though, as the Bengals have a strong offense, and a defense that has proven to be much improved from the past few seasons. It'll be interesting to see this AFC North match-up. What's most interesting about this game in my opinion is the fact that last year the Bengals were starting a rookie quarterback and rookie wide out, and now the Browns are starting a rookie quarterback and rookie running back. Kickoff is set for 1:00pm EST in Cleveland.
For the Bengals, it's going to be all about that passing game with Andy Dalton and stud wide out AJ Green. Green has been one heck of a target in the past year or so, and he's looking like he has the potential to be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. Dalton has some targets this season, and a new running back in BenJarvus Green-Ellis as well. The Bengals defense is going to try to put a whole lot of pressure on the Browns offense, specifically Brandon Weeden, and that'll be interesting to watch here.

The Browns need to keep working Trent Richardson as much as they can, but they'll need Weeden to keep connecting with his wide receivers to open up the running lanes for Richardson. Their offense has shown signs of being very solid at different points, but they are going to have to keep it rolling in order to get that first win. I'm really looking for them to stay with Richardson on Sunday against this Bengals defense.

I'm interested in the fact that this line is only -1 for the Bengals, and it probably has something to do with the fact that Cinci let down a bit last week against the Miami Dolphins. They had won three straight before that, and one of those wins was against this same Browns team. While they won that game by a touchdown, I think this one is going to be a bit closer. This doesn't mean that the Bengals aren't going to be able to win it though, and I think it'll be around a field goal to a four point game, and I'd expect to see something like 28-24 in the Bengals favor.
