The Bengals love hearing how much they own the Chiefs of late. But they should hate how much Cleveland has dominated the Battle of Ohio with five consecutive victories and won the earlier meeting this season 32-13. The Bengals have realized how strong their running game can be with Samaje Perine or Joe Mixon playing off Joe Burrow having his full complement of dangerous downfield weapons. The Bengals didn’t adjust well in the first matchup without Ja’Marr Chase. Chase makes up for lost time and stops the intrastate skid as Burrow easily outduels Deshaun Watson.

The Bengals have won four straight games since the Halloween disaster against the Browns. Joe Burrow is 0-4 as a starter against Cleveland, and the Browns are clinging to their playoff hopes with Deshaun Watson. Cincinnati keeps it moving in the right direction, but Cleveland keeps it close.
