The Cleveland Browns take on the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium
After suffering their second loss of the season, the Cleveland Browns prepare for their first rematch of 2020 as they prepare to face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. The two teams faced off in Week 2 on Thursday Night Football, and things felt similar for Cleveland to what’s going on now.
The Browns had suffered a major defeat in Week 1 at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens before heading home to face Cincinnati. They ended up winning that game by a score of 35-30 but it only seemed that close thanks to a late touchdown from Cincinnati.
Now in Week 7, Cleveland again finds themselves trying to put a tough loss in the rearview. They were knocked down a peg by the Pittsburgh Steelers — who stopped the Browns four-game winning streak. They also made life miserable on quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has been heavily criticized by the media following his struggles in the loss.
Mayfield and the Browns are fortunate to have the Bengals on the schedule since they have been a struggling team so far in 2020. Of course, no game is a given but this is a matchup that favors Cleveland and as long as they play a clean game, they should be able to get back on track.

Cleveland will be without tight end Austin Hooper in this one as he was a late-week scratch. For the Bengals, it’s Joe Mixon who was ruled out late. Each team is without a key member of their offense as they look for a win in the AFC North.
