The Browns and Bengals both lost in Week 1. The in-state rivals will face each other in Week 2, with the Bengals entering the game as overwhelming favorites.
The Cleveland Browns will hit the road in Week 2 for an in-state rivalry game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. Both teams are looking to rebound from Week 1 losses.
Despite the struggles of their rookie quarterback and running back, the Browns were inches away from stealing the opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Instead, they allowed the Eagles to escape by a point after a last-minute Philadelphia touchdown. Brandon Weeden, who threw four interceptions, and Trent Richardson, who averaged just over two yards per carry, will have to improve for the Browns to win this Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Bengals enter the game as seven-point favorites despite suffering a 44-13 clobbering at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. On a positive note, BenJarvus Green-Ellis had a stellar debut for Cincinnati, rushing for 91 yards and a touchdown against a notoriously tough defense. Andy Dalton had a rough game, though, as he was sacked four times and threw an interception.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen on CBS. For a detailed coverage map, click here.
