Everything you need for Bengals vs Browns Round 2.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Battle of Ohio is renewed in Week 14 as the Cleveland Browns host the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati enters this matchup at 4-7-1 and effectively out of the playoff mix. All they can really fight for now is pride and job security for coaches and players. While head coach Marvin Lewis will likely be back next year, it certainly helps to win a few games down the stretch to avoid any hot-seat talk.

The same could be said for the 0-12 Browns and head coach Hue Jackson. The former Bengals offensive coordinator is having a rough go at his first year with the Browns, who are just hoping to avoid an 0-16 black mark at this point.

While Jackson should be back next year regardless of how Cleveland finishes, an 0-16 season on his record certainly doesn’t bode well for his future as an NFL head coach.

All said, this matchup is all about the rivalry, and that alone should make for a great game. Here is everything you’ll need to watch and follow this game:

Weather: Cloudy in the 30s with a chance of snow during the game.

Prediction: This is the best chance for the Browns to get a win and avoid the dreaded 0-16 mark. The Bengals are just playing for respect and the ultra-slim hope of a playoff berth. This ends up being a fun game that comes down to the final drive, but the Bengals escape with a narrow win to keep Cleveland win-less.

Bengals 27, Browns 20.
