The 2023 season didn't go according to plan for the Cincinnati Bengals, as instead of pushing for a Super Bowl appearance, they'll be playing their final game of the season on Sunday. The Bengals are going to be fighting not to finish a winless record in the AFC North when the Cleveland Browns come to town.
The good news for Cincinnati is that a win ensures they'll have at least one win in the division and that the team will finish with a winning record overall. The bad news is that for those who care about draft placement, a win hurts the Bengals.
This game definitely won't be an exciting one considering the Bengals are eliminated from playoff contention while the Browns have locked up the five seed in the AFC playoffs. That means they'll be resting starters for this game.
