Predictions For Browns Bengals – Bengals Look To Bounce Back Against Second AFC North Rival In As Many Weeks

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/11/2012 6:25:50 PM

The Cleveland Browns nearly surprised the sports betting world with what would have been an unlikely win over the Philadelphia Eagles in week one before losing on a late touchdown score. The Cincinnati Bengals actually did surprise in week one, only for all of the wrong reasons. The Bengals were blown away by the Baltimore Ravens 44-13 on the road in week one, and will look for a much better result when they return home to take on their second division rival in as many weeks.

Cincinnati proved to be no match for the powerful Ravens as they were dominated on both sides of the ball for most of the game. The Browns aren’t nearly as good of a team as Baltimore, but they did put up a very strong fight against the Eagles in a 17-16 loss.

Cleveland led for most of the fourth quarter before surrendering a touchdown with just 1:18 left on the clock. Even in the defeat there were positives for the Browns to take from the loss, as the defense forced five turnovers against a Philadelphia offense that is expected to be among the most powerful in the NFL this season. Cleveland can’t allow the Bengals to put up the 456 total yards of offense that the Eagles had and expect to have the same turnover numbers, and even more importantly the offense can’t keep giving the ball back. Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden threw four interceptions and didn’t look all too convincing as the starter. Weeden will need some help from fellow rookie running back Trent Richardson, who wasn’t much better with just 39 yards on 19 carries.

The Bengals somehow managed to keep it close until the third quarter against the Ravens before allowing 27-straight second half points, but even early on they were outplayed. Cincinnati’s defense should be much stronger up front against the Browns, and will look to make the Cleveland offense one-dimensional in order to force Weeden to beat them through the air. Andy Dalton took a beating in the pocket last week but should have more time to throw against a lesser front-seven. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis looked good in his Bengals’ debut rushing for 91 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown, and could put up similar numbers this week.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Cincinnati took a beating in week one and will now have to take on its second division rival in as many weeks on short rest. The Bengals will have more room to operate on offense, but will need their defense to step up and get pressure on Weeden and the Browns’ offense. Cleveland kept it close against a talented Eagles’ team even with four turnovers, and if they can be even marginally better in this online sportsbook game there is no reason to think they can’t keep it close.
