    Cincinnati Bengals fpuent at Cleveland Browns Jshaver


    The AFC North is always very competitive. This year is no different. All four teams are within 2 games of each other and three are within one game. Two of those teams within one game, Cincinnati and Cleveland, square of this week for a stake in the division lead. Cleveland currently leads the division at 3-2, however a Bengals win would give them a share of the division lead. This interstate rivalry is sure to produce a lot of action and quite a few highlights.​

    Last Week

    The Bengals rebounded from a tough loss to Jacksonville in Week 4 with a dominating 20-2 win at home against the Dolphins. Defense was the story in this game as both teams combined for only 381 yards. The Bengals defense held Miami to only 157 offensive yards and befuddled rookie QB Ryan Tannehill to the tune of a 29.4 QBR.​

    Cleveland stormed into MetLife stadium and put a beating on the hometown Giants. Rookie running back Trent Richardson tore through the Giants defense for a franchise record 252 rushing yards and three touchdowns. The defense did allow 443 yards to the Giants but 394 were passing and mostly in an effort to mount a comeback.​

    Keys to the Game

    Bengals' running back Bernard Scott has managed a very pedestrian 2.6 yards per carry so far this season. Establishing a running game and keeping Richardson off of the field will be paramount to winning this game for Cincinnati.​

    The Browns reliance on the running game has created issues for the team when they face third downs. Cleveland is currently tied for last in the league with a 20% conversion rate (10-of-49) on thirds downs. If the Bengals defense can contain Richardson, it could lead to a long day in the Dawg Pound.​

    What to Watch

    Turnovers - The Browns defense is currently tied for the league lead (Pittsburgh) with eight fumble recoveries and ranks tied for sixth in interceptions. Their ability to create turnovers could end any clock eating Cincinnati drives and give Richardson a chance to create havoc with the running game.​

    This sounds cliché and I know it was used last week, but home field advantage wins out again in this match-up. The Browns running game will control the clock and allow the home team to squeak out a narrow win over the hated Bengals.​
