Bengals at Browns Madden Simulation: Browns’ defense dominates in low-scoring slug-fest

Madden predicts a poor outing for the Bengals offense in Cleveland.

Bengals vs Browns highlights

The Bengals got a win against the Raiders last week and everything, aside from the playoffs, is still in play for Marvin Lewis’ team. If the Bengals lose out, they could have a shot at a top-ten pick and if they win out, they could be slotted in in the late teens. These last two weeks could have a huge impact on the future of the Bengals organization and that starts this week’s game against the Browns.

Now, let’s take a look at the Bengals vs. Browns Madden simulation to try and predict how the real life version of this game will play out.

The Bengals start off with the ball and get a good drive going down the field. They end up getting stopped though and on fourth-and-short have to take the field goal to take the lead.

After the Bengals’ field goal, both teams get the ball and end up going three-and-out. The Browns receive the Bengals’ punt and are able to get a drive going this time. On third-and-goal no one is open for Baker Mayfield, but the rookie quarterback is able to tuck it and run it in for a touchdown.
