I've had some of those drives as a Bengals fan. For 12 years before Marvin Lewis came to town, I've suffered many a long drive back up I-71 to the Akron area. I think the two worst were the Bucs-Bengals game of 2002 with Akili Smith at the helm and playing the Browns the last game of the season in 2003, watching Lee Suggs single-handedly dismantle the Bengals' playoff hopes. The worst thing about that game was making the trip all the way back up 71 with a bunch of Browns fans hooting and honking their horns in victory as they passed us.
I've also suffered a few hard defeats at Cleveland Browns stadium, including the infamous Gus Frerotte "Left-Handed Pass" game.
