Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Besides Week 1, I am so excited for this game. Hue Jackson and Robert Griffin III come to town. I have always been an RGIII fan and want nothing more than him to be the guy he used to be in his rookie season. However, that can’t come at the expense of the Bengals.

This Battle of Ohio is going to be better than years past. Way more competitive. From recent reports, it sounds like RGIII is fully healthy. Griffin is running like he used to, throwing the ball with “zing,”…oh, and baseball sliding.

Griffin has always had the talent, but lacked the durability and coaching. Jay Gruden is a very good coach. But, look at what he did with Andy Dalton. Then, look at what Hue Jackson did for Dalton once Gruden left. From Barely Pro Bowler to MVP Caliber. Griffin now has a QB guru and great offensive mind in Jackson that is going to work wonders.

Also, the Baylor Bears will all be together. That’s right. Griffin, Coleman and finally we see Josh Gordon  back on the field. If it wasn’t for Gordon being suspended the first four games, I’d love to see this as the Week 1 game.

Prediction: Bengals Win

Next: Week Eight
