Per 506sports.com, the areas in purple on the map below will get to see the Bengals vs. Browns game live on CBS at 1:00 PM EST:
- Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton was a second-round pick by the Bengals in 1983. Former members of the Browns who now play on the Bengals include QB Josh Johnson, TE Alex Smith, and S Chris Crocker.
- WR Josh Gordon needs 100 yards receiving or more to become the first Browns player since Braylon Edwards in 2006 to record back-to-back 100-yard games for Cleveland. Gordon needs 10 receptions to be the first Browns player since Ozzie Newsome in 1984 to have back-to-back totaling 20 receptions.
- This one is ridiculous: if QB Brian Hoyer has a 300-yard passing day, he will be the first Browns quarterback to have back-to-back 300+ yard passing games...since Brian Sipe in 1980. He is also looking to be the first Brown since Derek Anderson in 2007 to have back-to-back games of 3 touchdown passes. If he wins this week, Hoyer will be the first Browns quarterback since Mark Rypien in 1994 to win his first two starts.
- LT Joe Thomas will be appearing in his 100th career game.
- The last time these two teams met was on October 14, 2012 in Cleveland. The Browns emerged victorious by a final score of 34-24. Cleveland was aided by 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a pick six by cornerback Sheldon Brown. It was the first game back from suspension for cornerback Joe Haden, and many fans attribute the victory to his return. Oh yeah, and what did former Browns running back Trent Richardson do that day? He had 14 carries for 37 yards.
- The Browns have a quick turnaround after the Bengals game, and will host the Buffalo Bills this Thursday in prime time.
- The Cleveland Indians can clinch a wildcard berth with a win. They will be playing at 2:10 PM EST, so that game is sure to take some eyeballs away from the Bengals vs. Browns game. Go Tribe!!!
