[1:00 PM] Bengals @ Browns

Who will WIN this matchup?

Cincinnati Bengals (4-7)

@ Cleveland Browns (0-12)


The Cleveland Browns are the only remaining winless team in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to win going down the stretch. The Browns reportedly will turn back to Robert Griffin III at starting quarterback when they host the AFC North-rival Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The Bengals look like they will end a string of five straight playoff appearances but still have a chance to create some chaos in the AFC playoff picture with games remaining against Houston, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Cincinnati ended a three-game slide and a four-game winless streak with a victory over Philadelphia last week and needs to win its final four games to avoid finishing with a losing record for the first time since 2010.

Cincinnati’s lackluster campaign and no playoff wins despite five straight appearances is bringing into question coach Marvin Lewis’ job security, but he doesn’t seem worried. The Bengals got some things right on offense last week despite missing running back Giovani Bernard (knee) and leading receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) as quarterback Andy Dalton spread the ball around to nine different receivers en route to 332 passing yards in the 32-14 triumph.

One player that figures to have a future with the Browns is Pryor, who is up to 855 receiving yards in his breakout campaign after recording 131 in a loss to the New York Giants last week.

Griffin went 12-of-26 for 190 yards with no TD passes and an interception in the Week 1 start.
