Cincinnati battled to overtime game against Miami on Sunday but wound up losing 38-35. Cincinnati’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of Andy Dalton, who passed for four TDs and 396 yards on 56 attempts, and Tyler Boyd, who caught nine passes for two TDs and 128 yards.
Dalton threw for three TDs in the final 5:01 of regulation as Cincinnati rallied from a 35-12 deficit. The Bengals clinched the No. 1 slot in the 2020 NFL Draft with the loss to the Dolphins.
Meanwhile, Cleveland was first on the board but had to settle for a decisive 31-15 loss to Baltimore last week. One thing working against the Browns was the down performance of Nick Chubb, who rushed for 45 yards on 15 carries. The Browns were officially eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.
The Bengals are stumbling into the matchup with the most rushing yards allowed per game in the NFL, having given up 153.9 on average. The Browns have experienced some defensive struggles of their own as they are third worst in the league in rushing yards allowed per game, with 142.4 on average.
