The Bengals are looking for revenge after being embarrassed by Cleveland 32-13 on Monday Night Football in Week 8. Last week, 2.5-point underdog Cincinnati earned a 27-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, as QB Joe Burrow improved to 3-0 against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. However, he is 0-4 all-time against the AFC North rival Browns.
