Odds: Bengals by 6.5 points.
- WR Andrew Hawkins was acquired by Cleveland as a restricted free agent in 2014 after three seasons with the Bengals. Hawkins appeared in 35 games with Cincinnati, totaling 86 receptions for 995 yards with four touchdowns.
- Bengals WR Greg Little was a second-round draft choice by the Browns in 2011. He played in every game for Cleveland from 2011-2013 and led the team in receptions twice (2011-12) before joining the Bengals as a free agent prior to Week 6 this season.
- Cincinnati QB Jason Campbell spent last season with Cleveland. Campbell saw action in nine games (eight starts) as a Brown and completed 180 of 317 passes for 2,015 yards and 11 touchdowns.
- With a win this week, the Browns would have their best record through nine games since 1994, when the club started 7-2. The Browns haven’t won an away game against an AFC North opponent since a 20-12 victory at Cincinnati on Sept. 28, 2008.
- FS Tashaun Gipson could become the first Brown to record an interception in four consecutive games since CB Joe Haden did it in 2010. An interception would give Gipson seven on the season, the most by a Brown since CB Anthony Henry recorded 10 as a rookie in 2001. Gipson needs 43 interception-return yards to pass CB Thom Darden (200 in 1978) for the second-most interception return yards by a Brown in a season. Needs 81 to pass CB Bernie Parrish (238 in 1960) for first.
- One more sack would give OLB Paul Kruger seven on the season, the most by a Brown since LB Jabaal Sheard led the team with seven in 2012.
- The Bengals are 13-0-1 in their last 14 home games. The Browns lost to the Steelers and Ravens on TNF in 2011 and 2012, but beat the Bills on TNF last year. That was the same game that QB Brian Hoyer tore his ACL.
- The last time these two teams met in the regular season was on November 18, 2013 in Cincinnati, with the Bengals beating the Browns 41-20. It was a night to forget after such a promising start. Cleveland led 13-0 at the end of the first quarter, thanks to two interceptions by CB Joe Haden on QB Andy Dalton, one of which was a pick six. Then, the Browns had the worst second quarter fathomable, making mistake after mistake on offense, defense, and special teams en route to being outscored 31-0. It crushed Cleveland's spirit the remainder of the season; entering the game, fans thought the Browns still had a chance to take over the AFC North. The stakes this week are similar.
