Bengals Vs. Browns: Game Time, TV Schedule, Announcers And More

The Battle of Ohio features a pair of young gunslingers, as rookie Andy Dalton makes his debut for the Bengals and Colt McCoy begins his first season as a full-time starter for the Browns.

It's a new era in Cincinnati. Gone are long-time Bengals Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco. Instead, rookies Andy Dalton and A.J. Green take over at quarterback and wide receiver.

In time, the young rookies will likely grow into a productive duo, but this early in the season don't be surprised if Cedric Benson sees extra duty. Benson, who spent five days in jail last week as the result of assault charges, ran wild for 150 yards the last time he faced the Browns.

Compared to Dalton, Colt McCoy is a grizzled veteran, despite having just eight NFL starts under his belt. Just don't expect too much: the Browns scored through the air just 13 times all of last season, and only player (tight end Benjamin Watson) topped 500 receiving yards.

The Browns hope switching to a West Coast offense will help spark more production, as well as an increased role for Josh Cribbs and the arrival of second-round pick Greg Little. But more than likely, Cleveland's offense will continue to live and die on the success of running back Peyton Hillis.
