Pregame Notes: Bengals vs. Browns in Battle of Ohio
The Bengals need a victory vs. their win-less division foes today in Cleveland. The Bengals will have Odom, Benson, and Pacman Jones today in their starting line up. Jake Delhomme will be the third QB today and the Browns are scared to play him quite yet. The nod will go to Seneca Wallace, who is more mobile than Delhomme, and will add more dimensions to the stagnant Browns offense. The Browns have been miserable in both phases of the game, however, they played Baltimore hard last week and nearly came out with a win. The Bengals cannot sleep on their division rivals and I expect Cleveland (who has always given the Bengals some fits) to play Cincy very tough. The Bengals need this win as Baltimore and Pittsburgh are playing each other today as well. The Bengals could move into second place in the division if Pittsburgh wins today or will be in a three-way tie for first if the Ravens win.
