Prediction:

Last year when these two teams met early in the year, the Browns won in a 51-45 shootout. But with both of these teams struggling offensively so far this year, a repeat of last year might be far fetched. Cincinnati got back on track a bit last week in an overtime loss to the Giants, and could have the chance to light up a suspect Cleveland defense this Sunday. Conversely, the Browns continue to struggle and have shown no signs of rebounding. In fact, quarterback Derek Anderson will be on a short leash and could be replaced by second-year player Brady Quinn if he under performs against the Bengals. We predict the Bengals over the Browns, 26-20.
