People always ask me if the Browns have a chance on winning any given weekend. Of course they always have a chance, that is the beauty of the NFL. Any team can turn around and beat any other team during any weekend.
What are the chances that they will win this week? That is the big question here. Honestly, very small.
The Browns are not going to be able to rebound after such a heartbreaking loss and then defend the best team in the division. Cleveland is as beat down as any NFL team in the league, both physically and mentally.
With their starting QB on IR, cornerback Joe Haden on the edge of IR, Davis starting for the first time as a Brown, their defense being a shell of what it was in 2014, and their organization being all over the place, it will be hard for Cleveland to compete. That is definitely not the case with the Bengals, who are very focused on their goals.
I’m taking the Bengals big on Sunday.
Bengals – 37 Browns – 17
Prediction Record: 7-4
