Monday night the Cleveland Browns lined up for what would have been the game winning field goal against the Baltimore Ravens. Only two things could have happened, so we thought. Either the field goal goes through the uprights and the Browns win, or they miss the kick and the teams go into overtime. By now you've all seen what actually happened. The one thing that could have happened but no one expected: the kick was blocked, the Ravens ran it back for a touchdown and the Browns lost.
I'm numb to the losses. Hell, I expect them.
In a season that was supposed to have only one big question mark (quarterback), the Browns truly have issues at every single position. The owner is too involved, the GM continues to make terrible decisions, and the coaching staff as a whole are clueless. Put all of that together and you end up with what is the worst record in the NFL. This article is supposed to be a "preview", but I'm stalling because there isn't a single thing to look forward to in this game. The Browns are 2-9 and the Bengals are 9-2. The Bengals are fourth in the league in scoring (27pts per game) and the Browns are second to last in scoring defense giving up 28pts per game. The Browns best player, and I use that term loosely, Joe Haden is STILL out with a concussion.
Have fun AJ Green! Tyler Eifert has been ruled out, but Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones will still be available to abuse Tremond Williams. The Bengals are also like most teams that use the two running back system with Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. They'll be going up against the worst run defense in the NFL.
I picked the Browns to beat the Ravens and I figured that would be their last win of the season. Well, I was wrong and I have learned my lesson. This Sunday at home the Browns will lose for the second time this season to the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10.
