Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Mayfield and the Browns flamed out against the Steelers last week but they still have a favorable rest of the schedule including two games with the Bengals. This is the first Battle of Ohio and even though the Bengals are showing more competitiveness, with their defense playing better and Andy Dalton at the helm again, the teams that are stacked with talent tend to outlast the Bengals.
Cinci’s defense has only allowed the last three quarterbacks combine for three touchdowns and shut out a hot Sam Darnold from the end zone. It’s a lot tougher matchup than originally thought six weeks ago, but the Browns look to have one last fight in them to make a playoff push. Mayfield who is nursing an injured hand will utilize all of his teammates mismatches and for at least one week, quiet the critics.
