Re: Bengals v. Browns Preview (WHO DEY)
Really, this is as close to a "must-win" for the Bengals as it could possibly get for the first game of the year. It's a division game vs. a bad team and there is no excuse for not winning this one - especially considering that the Steelers and Ravens will both likely sweep Cleveland. If this game was in Dec. it would be a must-win, so there is no reason it shouldn't be now.
The Bengals under Marvin Lewis have started slow but roared through November. And with that ugly stretch coming vs. PIT, BAL, INDY and Green Bay, you gotta win this one now.
I think the Bengals will win.
28-20 good guys
