The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns square off in Week 18 for the first time ever. The only thing riding on this game is seeding for the Bengals in the playoffs. Cleveland was eliminated in Week 17 so they have very little to play for other than draft seeding.
With this in mind, Cincy isn’t planning on starting Joe Burrow and he might not even suit up for the game. This means it’s Brandon Allen time for the Bengals and on the other side of the field, Case Keenum will be starting at quarterback. Who doesn’t love a good battle between two backup quarterbacks?
The Browns won the first match-up in a game that was essentially over by halftime and while getting swept by Cleveland wouldn’t be fun, it doesn’t really matter that much. The Bengals are in the postseason and the Browns will be watching from home. That’s all that matters this time of the year.
Who is on the call for Bengals-Browns in Week 18?
This game is going to be on FOX so we’ll have a different set of announcers than what we’re used to. Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma, and Lindsay Czarniak are on the call when the Bengals take the field in Cleveland and fans haven’t heard this team call a game yet this season.
Albert dabbles in the four major sports but is most known for his work with the New York Rangers. Vilma spent 10 seasons in the NFL and is most remembered for the six years he spent in New Orleans with the Saints. Czarniak is a sideline reporter and also is a studio host for NASCAR.

It’s always interesting to have different announcer teams on the call and that should make this game a little more enticing considering it’ll be a lot of backups playing.
