Running Backs:

9 games into the season, the Browns running backs have accounted for just 468 yards (counting Richardson’s 105) and 1 TD! BJGE alone – who is playing on a hurt ankle and having a poor year – has 460 yards and 3 TDs. Bernard adds another 419 yards and 4 TDs, giving the Bengals running backs a total of 879 yards and 7 TDs. This one is not even close.

Advantage: Bengals

Wide Receivers:

With Gordon, Little and Bess, the Browns have a respectable wide receiving corps, however, those 3 WRs have combined for 1,251 yards and 6 TDs. AJ Green alone has 1,013 yards and 6 TDs. In fact, the Bengals have 2 WRs (Green and Jones) that each have as many/more TDs (6 and 7) than the Browns top 3 WRs have combined (6).

Advantage: Bengals
