THE UNLIKELY SCENARIO

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis reiterated this week that we shouldn't expect to see rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick this weekend against the Browns. That being said he practiced all week. Yet forgive us for saying this, but it's not like Lewis has said one thing and the exact opposite has happened.

NUMBERS GAME

The Cincinnati Bengals have won 13 of their past 16 games against the Browns, including three of the past four played in Cleveland.

THE BETTING LINE

Cincinnati is a three-point favorite according to the SB Nation's Odds Page. Cincinnati and Cleveland are 2-2-1 against the spread respectively this year.
