Five things to watch: Bengals at Browns
The Bengals offense has scored 30 or more points in each of the past two games after being held under that mark in Weeks 1-5. It also took Cincinnati six games to reach 30 points last season, and the team then followed up by scoring 30+ in five of its next six contests. For Joe Burrow and company to leave FirstEnergy Stadium with a crucial AFC North win, they could use a repeat of that momentum found in 2021.

With Cleveland Trip Looming, Bengals At Best When Need Win Most
"Absolutely," says Bengals slot cornerback Mike Hilton, a member of three AFC North champions after Cincinnati prevailed last season. "Time to get our first AFC North win. It's about that time where teams start to separate and pull away from the pack for the playoff push. We like where we're at, but we still have a lot of stuff we need to do."
Ja'Marr Chase injury update: Star avoids injured reserve, Bengals hopeful he returns sooner than 4-6 weeks - CBSSports.com
The injury was expected to sideline the Bengals star 4-6 weeks, but head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Saturday that Chase will not be placed on injured reserve. Instead, he'll remain on the active roster as he rehabs his hip injury. It's an optimistic sign Chase could return sooner than anticipated as a player on IR must sit for at least four weeks.

2022 NFL trade deadline: Which players are available? Which teams are buying, selling?
Other teams believe Chubb is the most likely to be traded of this group, with a potential return equivalent to a first-round pick and more. Denver has fielded and listened to offers for the Pro Bowl defender, who has 5.5 sacks this season. But sources say the Broncos aren't inclined to move Chubb -- or Jeudy and Hamler for that matter -- unless they get the perfect offer. A Chubb trade would also be complicated because a new team giving up that type of draft capital would surely want (and need) to work out a contract extension as well (Chubb currently is on the final year of his rookie contract). The Broncos, who lost starting receiver Tim Patrick in training camp to a torn ACL, are relying on Jeudy and Hamler as they try to get struggling quarterback Russell Wilson going. The talented and athletic Okwuegbunam, on the other hand, has been subject of trade calls since this past spring and has been inactive the past two weeks. With just seven catches for 50 yards, the price to acquire Okwuegbunam wouldn't figure to be high.

However, it was incredibly transparent on a chilly night in Buffalo how much he's grown as a leader and a galvanizing force for the league's best team. Allen doesn't run safely. He should play safer; he should slide a bit more.
