Browns Vs. Bengals: Where FoS Was Right, Wrong

Mandatory Credit: Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Matchup Preview: Offensive Lines versus Front 7s

In that article we matched up each offensive lines versus the opposing Front 7s. We gave the advantage to both defensive Front 7s as we saw limited offensive lines and pretty dominate defenses.

Where we were right: Both defensive front 7s held their own but the Browns, especially against the run, was more dominate.

Where we were wrong: The Bengals did not get the type of pressure expected in this game.

Matchup Preview: Offensive Weapons versus Their Defenders

Here we previewed both weapons and their defenders. We gave the advantage to both teams at defending running backs, at wide receiver and at tight ends. We predicted the advantage to Andy Dalton in the QB match-up.

Where we were right: The Browns did hold the running backs to a low average and total.

Where we were wrong: The Browns were succesful in matching up with the Bengals wide receivers, they only have 1 real threat, AJ Green, and their 2 tight ends. Hoyer was far better then Dalton on this day in decision making, accuracy and in the stats columns.

Game Prediction

We predicted a win for the Bengals in a game that is low scoring until the fourth quarter, ending 23-20.

Where we were right: It was a close game and low scoring for the entire game. We saw Dalton with a key turnover, though we predicted a fumble.

Where we were wrong: The Browns won. Hoyer did not have any turnovers and the game stayed low scoring throughout.

So far we are doing okay in our predictions. Its been nice to be wrong about the last 2 outcomes. The team has an identity for the first time in a long time, with an aggressive solid defense and a quick passing attack offense. The Bills game is Thursday so we will have to get started on preparations for that game soon.
