In the black and blue division of the AFC North, is this the week the Cleveland Browns gets back to adding a win to their record? Or will it be much of the same for Cleveland, while seeing the Cincinnati Bengals continues with their winning streak to start the season?
Well it has been an ugly few weeks for the Cleveland Browns and it is not getting any easier this week as they go to Cincinnati to play the undefeated Bengals on Thursday Night Football.
The Bengals are off to a great start with their first 7-0 start in franchise history. They have begun running away with the AFC North title this season with a three and a half game lead on the second place Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cincinnati’s roster does not have too many superstars on it, but it is definitely one of the deepest rosters in the NFL.
Almost every unit on this Bengals team is good if not great. Combine that with the fact that the Browns are in a huge disarray and that they will be playing on a short week in Cincinnati, Week 9 is going to be difficult for Cleveland.
Here are my five reasons as to why the Bengals will win on Thursday Night.
