Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns
Thusday, September 17, 2020
Vanu: FirstEnergy Stadium — Cleveland, Ohio
What to Know
The Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals will face off in an AFC North clash at 8:20 p.m. ET Sept. 17 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.
A win for the Browns just wasn’t in the stars on Sunday as the squad never even grasped a temporary lead. They suffered a grim 38-6 defeat to 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 they got one touchdown from QB Baker Mayfield. Mayfield’s longest connection was to TE David Njoku for 28 yards in the second quarter.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati was first on the board but had to settle for second at the end of their matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. It was close but no cigar for the Bengals as they fell 16-13 to Los Angeles. Cincinnati had the chance to send it into overtime, but kicker Randy Bullock missed a late-game 31-yard field goal.
Both teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. Giving up four turnovers, Cleveland had trouble holding onto the ball. We’ll see if Cincinnati can exploit that vulnerability.

Where is the 2020 NFL Draft?
For the first time ever, this year’s draft will be held exclusively online. Due to local and national restrictions stemming from the pandemic, the planned physical Las Vegas location was scrapped in favor of a remote, virtual selection process that will see all 32 NFL teams operating from their homes. Commissioner Goodell is set to announce picks from his home in New York.
After 50 straight years in New York City, where it was most recently held at Radio City Music Hall, the draft has been physically held in Chicago (Auditorium Theatre), Philadelphia (Museum of Art), Arlington (AT&T Stadium) and Nashville (Lower Broadway) since 2015.
