Bengals @ Browns

Recommended Posts



The Browns snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Bengals with a 35-20 win in Cincinnati in Week 12. Cleveland scored the first four touchdowns, opening their largest first-half lead (28-0) since 1991 (31-0 vs. Colts in Week 14).

The Bengals had lost five straight before beating the Raiders, 30-16, in Week 15. Cincinnati has not won this season unless it has scored 27 or more points, going 6-0 when it does and 0-8 when it doesn't.

The Browns have won back-to-back games and four of their last five. The last time Cleveland had a three-game winning streak was Weeks 8-10 of the 2014 season. Since then, there have been 128 three-game win streaks in the NFL, an average of 4.12 per team.

Joe Mixon made it back-to-back 100-yard rushing games for the first time in his career after amassing a career-high 129 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. He is the first Bengal to have consecutive games with 25-plus carries, 100-plus rushing yards and a rushing score since Cedric Benson in 2009.

Baker Mayfield had two TD passes last week and has had at least one in all 11 of his NFL starts. Only two quarterbacks in NFL history have begun their career with longer streaks - Kurt Warner, 23 straight in 1999-2000, and Brad Johnson, 15 straight in 1996-1997 (QB starts have been tracked since 1950).

The Browns and Bengals are 31st and 29th in the league in average time of possession, respectively (32nd - Cardinals). Cleveland's defense has been on the field for an NFL-leading 1003 plays while Cincinnati's D has faced 952 plays, third most in the league.
