The Cincinnati Bengals will welcome divisional rivals the Cleveland Browns to Paul Brown Stadium for their Week 9 clash on Sunday.

The Bengals are coming off a horrendous performance in Week 8. Cincinnati entered the week as the #1 seed in the AFC but somehow managed to lose to the New York Jets, who were without starting quarterback Zach Wilson.

The Browns also had a bad night against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Cleveland could muster just 10 points in an ugly loss. It proved to be wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.'s last game in the Browns uniform, as the team released him on Friday after failing to trade him before the deadline.

Both teams are coming into this game wounded and neither can afford a loss.

The Browns, however, have won five of the last six games between the two teams.

Bengals vs. Browns Prediction

Cleveland's struggling offense just got weaker after Beckham's departure. The Bengals had a horrible game defensively last week, but their offense still managed to put up 31 points on the board. On balance, the Bengals should come out on top in this game.

Prediction: The Bengals win by at least 10 points.
