The Cleveland Browns are tied for first in the AFC North. The perennial doormat of the division dominated its intra-division, intra-state rivalry with the Cincinnati Bengals last night, scoring first and never trailing en route to a 24-3 victory.
At the start of the season, a Cleveland-Cincinnati battle as a Thursday Night primetime game didn’t appear to be an ideal television choice.
First place is on the line in the air-tight AFC North as the Browns visit the Bengals on Thursday night.
Week 10 of the 2014 NFL regular season has a lot of big games on the schedule and that includes two big AFC contests that include match-ups between potential playoff teams. Steve Tasker of CBS Sports took some time to discuss the “Thursday Night Football” game between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals and then a Sunday match-up between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.
The primary focal point of pretty much every football team is the quarterback. Some teams have an elite quarterback they want to keep around for as long as possible. They are set at the position, and they don’t worry about anything other than injury or retirement. Then, there are the teams that know they have a problem under center. Their quarterback won’t cut it, but they have to wait to get the opportunity to improve.

The Minnesota Vikings have hired Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer as head coach.
Being the sixth and final seed in the NFL playoffs usually means you’re a sizable underdog. When it comes to the San Diego Chargers, that holds true a second weekend straight.
San Diego took advantage of Andy Dalton’s three turnovers in the second half on Sunday, pulling away to a 27-10 victory that extended the Cincinnati Bengals’ streak of playoff misery to 23 years and counting.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
Here’s Durkin’s take on how the Wild Card Weekend will play out.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.
We’re still a month away from the Big Game, but it’s already a mistake – for more than one reason.
If you ask many people around the NFL to give you a prediction for this weekend’s San Diego-Cincinnati AFC Wild Card game, most folks would lean towards the Bengals.
Fifteen weeks in the books, yet only four playoff tickets – Seattle, Denver, Kansas City, and Indianapolis – have been punched. With two weeks remaining, 19 teams are left in contention for a Super Bowl run.
It was not a good night for Bengals’ punter Kevin Huber.
With only three playoff tickets punched, 25 teams remain in contention for a playoff spot.
The Colts and Broncos have already secured a playoff spot, with others offered the chance this weekend if all breaks right. The question is, which team will win the AFC Championship this year?
As the season heads down the home stretch, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos appear to be on a collision course to play in the Super Bowl Feb. 2 at (snow-covered) MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
