After the Browns were predicted to lose to the Ravens in week seven, it will be the Bengals Vs Browns in week eight. The Browns are predicted to be sitting at a solid 5-2, and they look to finish their October off strong.
Cleveland will have much-needed a bye week in week nine, and then they will be headed to Miami to face the Dolphins.
The Browns got the best of the Bengals both times they faced each other last season, and they’re looking to build on that.
Browns’ Offense Could be Solid
In the Browns’ first win against the Bengals last year, they were successful on offense, putting up 41 points. At this point, Watson could return for the Browns after his probable suspension.
The Bengals have some good defensive pieces. They have Jessie Bates, but the whole situation with him not signing his franchise tag could indicate that his time in Cincinnati is over. But overall, their defense is solid.
After all, their defense secured them a trip to the Super Bowl last season.

The Bengals’ defense might be solid, but the Browns really did get the best of them in their first matchup last year.
The Browns still don’t have the greatest receivers, but Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and David Bell should get the job done.
Nick Chubb should still get some good offense in like he always does, especially after how he did last year.

Browns Defense Could Have Some Problems
The Bengals have some great offensive weapons. Players like, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd can give the Browns’ cornerbacks some problems.
But, Denzel Ward has some proven success against the Bengals’ wide receivers.

We can definitely expect Joe Mixon to be a problem for the Browns. With the lack of talent at the defensive tackle position, the Bengals can take advantage of that with a running back like Mixon.
The Bengals also have an improved offensive line, so it will be more difficult for the Browns to get pressure.
Bengals Vs Browns: Who Wins?
This should be a close one. Just like against the Ravens, this might come down to the last few seconds. But, the Browns should be able to pull this one out in Cleveland.
Final Score Prediction: Browns 28, Bengals 24
Browns Record Through Eight Games: 6-2
