Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns takes place Sunday with the Bengals looking to bounce back from their disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5. The game can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Browns are coming into this game 0-5 and are desperate to post a win.
In the first meeting between these teams it became an offensive shoot out with the Bengals finally coming away with a 34-27 win.
The Browns will have seen how the Bengals' offense struggled last week and they will be hoping they can take advantage today. In front of their home crowd this could be the Browns' best chance yet to claim a win this season so far.
Joe Haden will be returning following a four game ban for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for using performance enhancing drugs. He has been sorely missed in the Browns' secondary, and if he can have a big game today he could help his team begin to turn their season around.
The Browns managed to take an early lead against the New York Giants last week but were unable to hold them off, and ultimately the flood gates opened later in the game. Cleveland will be hoping for Haden in their secondary can help to cover up the holes in their line up, and stop this week being a repeat of Week 5. And with the Bengals' offense struggling recently the Browns must grab their opportunity.
This game is likely to be a closely contested affair, and Mike Nugent could be an important player in deciding the result. Nugent put out a wayward kick in Week 5 to see Miami Dolphins take the win, and it could be vital for him to put away those chances today if the Bengals are to come out on top.
