With the Browns offense struggling to put up points on the board, this
might be a welcome relief for the ineffective Bengals defense when both teams
square off in an AFC North divisional clash on Sunday (1 p.m. ET, CBS).
Cincinnati has given up a league high 166 yards rushing per game and 5.2 yards
per carry, but Cleveland's offense has not done much either. The unit is ranked
30th in total offense. Cincinnati (1-3) is coming off its bye week and hopes
that the time off was enough for the team to regroup. The addition of S Anthony
Mitchell, who signed with the Bengals, should also give the defensive unit a
boost. "Right now, it is not the way we had this thing put together," head coach
Marvin Lewis said. "But it is what it is right now, and we're going to get
better with it."
It's lookin' good right now: we're up by three--damn, nevermind, down by 4 at half time.
