Overview:

This will be the last game before the bye week for the Bengals and while the Browns aren't a push over, this will also be their last somewhat easy home game (at least on paper) game of the season. The Browns and the Bengals always have heated battles, both in Cleveland and in Cincinnati and even when the Bengals go to the playoffs and the Browns finish with a sub .500 record, the Browns constantly give the Bengals troubles.

This will be an important game for the Bengals to win. If they're going to make a playoff run, the games in the final stretch of the season are some of the most important. The Bengals need to make sure they beat the teams they're supposes to beat and the Browns fall under that category. This may be a close game, but the Bengals should come out on top.
