Cincinnati Bengals: Win, loss predictions for the last five games in 2019
Sitting at 5-6 currently, the Browns are still in the playoff hunt. In Week 14, the Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Cleveland for an AFC North matchup that will be pivotal for Baker Mayfield and Co.
This week, the Browns are in Pittsburgh as the Steelers start Devlin Hodges. Cleveland will be and should be a favorite in that game, meaning 5-6 is 6-6 with the Bengals on deck.
This has all the makings of a pretty good game. Dalton will have 60 minutes of football under his belt, and the Browns will be fighting for playoff survival.
This is another beatable team in back-to-back weeks. The Browns are underperforming and dysfunctional. Anyone who has seen them can attest to that. However, they have more talent than the Cincinnati Bengals, especially offensively. Where they might be at a drawback is the head coach. Cleveland has Freddie Kitchens who has been inconsistent all season long. The same argument often made about Zac Taylor.
Don’t look at this as Andy versus Baker as much as you should see it as Freddie versus Zac. Neither is particularly good, but the Browns at home fighting for the playoffs is enough for Cleveland to hand the Bengals a 12th loss.
