- Matt Koontz.
This game is going to be extremely tough to call. Tonight's game is a battle for first place in the AFC North, and the defining game in Cincinnati's season. If the Bengals can win tonight, they break their streak of prime time meltdowns and prove that they have a chance to win in the playoffs. If they lose this game, they prove that they are the same old Bungles and will likely lose their first playoff game, if they make it that far. I'm willing to give them a pass for that Patriots game because New England is always tough in Foxboro. However, Marvin Lewis has a bad habit of going full Marvin when coaching in the national spotlight. You never go full Marvin and win! While my heart tells me that the Bengals will win this one, my mind tells me that a poorly prepared, sloppy Cincinnati Bengals team will come out of the tunnel tonight and drop the ball at home. Final score: Browns 27, Bengals 14. Marvin Lewis for GM 2015!
