NFL picks and predictions, Week 11: Browns vs. Bengals 2013

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

In a pivotal AFC North bout, experts like the Bengals to reaffirm their position atop the division standings over the Browns.

The Baltimore Ravens beat the Cincinnati Bengals last week, bringing them back to the pack in the AFC North. The Bengals are now 6-4 overall, with the 4-5 Ravens and Cleveland Browns nipping at their heels in the standings. The Bengals and Browns will take each other on Sunday in yet another immensely important bout in the division race. The Browns beat the Bengals earlier this year, but NFL experts seem to agree that the Bengals will win the revenge match.

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Riley Cooper, Colin Kaepernick, Bills running backs and more.

Across SB Nation's six-member panel of NFL gurus, all six have the Bengals securing the win at home. At CBS Sports, five of eight experts took Cincinnati. At ESPN, six of the eight experts who posted their picks by Wednesday afternoon sided with the Bengals.

The game will pit very similar teams, replete with stud wideouts, inconsistent quarterbacks and stout front sevens. If the Bengals win as experts predict, they will tighten their grasp on the division crown with just five games left to play. Lose, and the division title race will be even more wide open.
