News and Notes

If the Ravens can manage to pull out a victory on the road against the Browns, it will keep them atop the AFC North by at least a game and will keep the Browns in the bottom spot below .500 on the season. If the Browns can pull off the victory after falling in Baltimore the last time we took the field, they would move out of last place in the division and would only be a game out of the lead. Coming off their bye and being at home, the Browns have as good of a chance as they did two weeks prior.

News and Notes

The Cincinnati Bengals are one of several NFL teams that you never know exactly what you’re going to get from them each week. While they are the team who completely put it on the Pittsburgh Steelers, they also lost to the New York Jets. It’s never sure exactly what they will do. If they can’t get it done at home against the San Francisco 49ers, they run the risk of evening up there record with the Browns if they should be victorious. Also, if the Browns pull out the win, the Bengals have a chance to move into a tie with the Ravens for the lead in the division as they still get to face them in Week 16.
