Week 14: at Cleveland Browns

All QB vs CLE

FBG says: Tough matchup. Andy Dalton sparked some life into the Bengals last week as he came off the bench and led the team to their first win of the season. This was a typical Dalton game, nothing fancy, but efficient completing just 6.6 yards-per-attempt but was able to move the ball through Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate enough to beat the Jets. While there was some speculation that A.J. Green would return this week, he is once again declared out early in the week on Wednesday which has to bring fuel to whether he returns at all at this point as the receiver heads into his free agency year. The Bengals at this point of the year with Dalton back are more dangerous than the Ryan Finley led team simply because of having a veteran quarterback essentially having a last chance audition to land somewhere next season. The Browns passing defense continues to be an above-average unit this season as they have held opponents to the seventh-fewest passing yards per game. The Browns got even better news this week as Damarious Randall who was suspended for the last game will return at free safety as he is one of the better coverage safeties in football. This is a defense that has not allowed a 300-yard passer and has allowed just four wide receivers to top 100 yards for the year. Overall it is a talented unit, but if there is a question mark surrounding it, it would be that the schedule has been favorable as they have faced just three offenses in the top half of the league in passing yards and they allowed over 250 yards to all three quarterbacks and two touchdowns to all three. The good news for the Browns is that the easy schedule against the pass continues as they face off against Andy Dalton and company.
