Browns vs Bengals Highlights
Scandal-hit Deshaun Watson should be ready to play this week, having missed the season’s first meeting with the Ravens through suspension. Remember he was serving an 11-game ban in the wake of assault allegations. In Week 14, they will hope that all the controversy is behind them and they can let the football deliver. They have got the defensive stars to help, with Myles Garrett and Denzel Ward being among the best in their positions in the league. Can they stay in the playoff picture?
Let us remember the Bengals were leading the all-time series 51-46 but were surprisingly swept by the Browns last season, including a 41-16 battering in November. Still, the Bengals made a fairytale run last season, coming up agonizingly short in the Super Bowl and being left to rue a missed opportunity. Do they have what it takes to get back to the big game one season later? They certainly tried to address their deficiencies on the offensive line, signing guard Alex Cappa and tackle La’el Collins in free agency. If they can give Joe Burrow more time to throw, look for a big season for both Joe Cool and receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.
We will wait to see what comes of the Bengals vs Browns matchup, but as it stands, it has the potential to go either way. If you want to bet on NFL games, we suggest you back the Bengals, whose offensive weapons should overpower the Dawg Pound.
