The 2023 NFL schedule was just released, and the Cleveland Browns act as bookends for the Cincinnati Bengals in the upcoming season.

While Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has a winning record against both the Ravens and Steelers, he has a 1-4 record against the Browns. His lone win against the I-71 rival was on December 11, 2022 in Cincinnati by a score of 23-10.

The Bengals will look to kill two birds with one stone in Week 1 of the upcoming season by not only getting the Browns monkey off their back, but also by starting the season off with a win, something they didn’t do last season.
