Bengals vs. Browns: Week 1 analysis

Joe Shiesty just landed the highest-paying contract in NFL history, and now he’s trying to land a W in Cleveland. With an All-Star offensive lineup including Jamar Chase, Tee Higgins, Joe Mixon, and stud free agent addition Orlando Brown Jr., the Bengals are hoping to start off the regular season on an electric note. Just one possession away from reaching back-to-back Super Bowls, the Bengals now find themselves back to square one but hungry as ever.

Meanwhile, the Browns are hoping to rebound from a 7-10 season that saw them finish last in the AFC North. The division hasn’t gotten any easier so the Browns’ destiny is entirely in theirown hands. Can Deshaun Watson become the franchise quarterback he once was? Can Ellijah Moore reestablish himself as one of the league’s up-and-coming wideouts? How will Nick Chubb follow up an incredible 1500+ season? And perhaps the biggest question of all, how will the defense look under new DC Jim Schwartz?

Rivalry games are notoriously known for a touch of unpredictability in the NFL. Sunday’s game is no different. While it features two teams who finished last season at opposite ends of the AFC North, the expectation for the division this year is for it to be among the toughest in the league.

While it will be a hard-fought game, the difference will be under center for the two teams as the NFL’s most expensive player will remind fans in Cleveland why he’s earned the bag.
