  • Browns offensive line coach Bill Callahan’s son, Brian Callahan, serves as the Bengals offensive coordinator.
  • Bengals defensive quality control coach Louie Cioffi served as the defensive backs coach for the Browns in 2013 and 2016, while RB Demtric Felton was originally drafted by the Browns in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
  • Bengals QB Joe Burrow (Athens), LB Joe Bachie (Berea), G Jackson Carman (Fairfield), LB Markus Bailey (Columbus), DE Sam Hubbard (Cincinnati), Browns T James Hudson III (Toledo), CB Denzel Ward (Macedonia) and defensive assistant Zach Dunn (Germantown) are all from Ohio.

  • The last time these two teams met was on December 11, 2022, with the Bengals beating the Browns 23-10. The theme for the Browns was that they weren’t having trouble moving the ball per se, but the offense just lacked any consistency in finishing drives.
