Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns
“THE BATTLE OF OHIO” takes place Week Nine, when the Browns travel to Cincinnati. During the 2014 season, this same prime time game was played in Week Nine and the Browns destroyed the Bengals, winning the game 24-3. Cleveland held Cincinnati to under 170 yards for the whole game.
This was a horrible moment for Cincinnati and it was an embarrassing moment for Bengals Nation. This year we have a rematch. Cincinnati will take on Cleveland at Paul Brown stadium in front of the whole league.
This is a must win game due to Cincinnati’s embarrassment last year and they need to exact revenge this year. If Cincinnati wants to make it to the playoffs and win the AFC North crown, they need to sweep the Browns and Week Nine is the first time these teams meet. Lastly, what is the big knock on Cincinnati? They can’t win games when the lights are on; they can’t win the prime time games. This year, they have four and need to win all four, but especially this one.
