Browns travel to Cincinnati today where severe weather will likely serve as an equalizer for these division rivals. It could be ugly but it could be an instant classic! Cincinnati leads the all time series 42-38.
The winner of this game will control the AFC North with 6 weeks to go. Browns defeated Bengals in Week 4 17-6 in Cleveland behind Brian Hoyer's passing and an outstanding defensive effort.
To win the Browns will have to repeat that performance with Jason Campbell, who since being inserted into the starting lineup has thrown 5 TDs and 0 INT.
This is the biggest game for the Browns since 2007 when the Browns also traveled to Cincinnati on a cold, windy day trying to clinch the division. Derek Anderson threw the game (and playoffs) away with a goat performance that all but sealed his fate the following season with the team.
We believe this time, Coach Chud will not let this opportunity slip away.
