Tight Ends:

Jordan Cameron is having one hell of a year (50 catches, 600 yards and 6 TDs), however, his production has dropped off lately. In his first 4 games, Cameron was averaging 7.5 receptions, 90 yards and 1.25 TDs per game (30 receptions, 360 yards, 5 TDs). In his last 5 games, Cameron is averaging just 4 receptions, 48 yards and .2 TDs per game (20 receptions, 240 yards, 1 TD). While the Bengals have not gotten the TD production from the TE position (2), they have 2 dynamic TEs (Eifert and Gresham) that have accounted for 66 receptions and 683 yards.

Advantage: Bengals


Defensive Line:

11.5 DL cle. Cin 22.5. While the Browns have a good DL wit Bryant and Taylor, the Browns play the 3-4 and their strength is in the LB position. The Bengals on the other hand have what is arguably the best DL in the NFL with Atkins, Dunlap, MJ and Peko. The Browns porous OL will have issues keeping this DL off Hoyer and if the Browns are forced to keep Cameron in to block, that could really hurt the Browns and help the Bengals.

Advantage: Bengals
