Why Cleveland Will Win
The running game is fine. It might have been stuffed by a jacked up Pittsburgh defense, but it should be able to get back to normal against a Cincinnati defensive front that’s been okay over the las few games, but allows over five yards per carry overall.
On the other side of the ball, the Bengal running game was a problem to begin with, and now it’ll be without Joe Mixon against a Brown run defense that could use the break.
Why Cincinnati Will Win
Cleveland will turn the ball over. It went mistake-free in two games, but in the other four it gave it up eight times. Cincinnati hasn’t had major turnover issues, but it’s been good for at least one giveaway – it has to at least keep the turnover margin close.
If there was ever a game to get the passing game going, this is it. The Brown secondary is the fourth-worst in the NFL despite the help from a strong pass rush, and Joe Burrow and the air show are rolling with 300 yards in two of the last three games.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati
It’s been Joe Mixon’s running game so far, but he’s out with a foot issue meaning Burrow will throw even more, and Bernard will get the ball in his hands in a variety of ways. He only has 44 rushing yards on the year with a touchdown, His last game with double-digit carries? 15 for 69 yards and two scores against Atlanta back in late September of 2018.
What’s Going To Happen
The Browns will get the offense back to normal. The attack will be balanced, Baker Mayfield will get off to a hot start, and … it’ll all be ugly. Expect each team to turn it over at least twice, but there will be plenty of passing yards and enough scoring to make this interesting late.
