What to Know

An AFC North battle is on tap between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns at 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday at FirstEnergy Stadium. The teams split their matchups last year, with Cleveland winning the first 27-19 at home and Cincinnati taking the second 33-23.

The Bengals scored first but ultimately less than the Los Angeles Chargers in their matchup this past Sunday. It was close but no cigar for Cincinnati as they fell 16-13 to Los Angeles. RB Joe Mixon wasn't much of a difference maker for Cincinnati and fumbled the ball once.

Meanwhile, a victory for the Browns just wasn't in the stars this past Sunday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 38-6 punch to the gut against the Baltimore Ravens. Cleveland was down 31-6 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. No one had a standout game offensively for Cleveland, but QB Baker Mayfield led the way with one touchdown. Mayfield's longest connection was to TE David Njoku for 28 yards in the second quarter.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
