Gridiron Gab Week Fifteen Preview – Cleveland at Cincinnati

Cleveland Browns Vs Cincinnati Bengals

When: Sunday,December 19th

Where: Paul Brown Stadium

Time: 1:00 p.m

Weather: Cloudy,High of 29

Players to Watch:

Bengals Offense

This is a very talented group that hasn’t been able to click all season young. With T.O. and Ochocinco they are a very dangerous match-up for the Browns and shouldn’t be taken lightly, despite there record. The Browns secondary has been playing better lately, but this should be a tough test for the young defensive backs on the team.

Peyton Hillis

I am interested in seeing how Hillis responds to last week’s game against the Bills. Hillis put the ball on the  field to many times for this team to be successful. We need Hillis to hold onto the football and can’t afford him putting the ball on the ground for the rest of the season.

Colt McCoy

It’s McCoy’s team for the rest of the year and hopefully his career. Colt played pretty good when he was the starter before his injury and hopefully can pick up where he left off. The team needs better Quarterback play then what they have had with Delhomme in there, and I look for McCoy to pick up where he left off  the last three weeks of the season.

Keys to the Game:


No stupid penalties.

Establish Running game

Contain Bengals Offense


Cleveland Browns 21 Cincinnati Bengals 17

I look for Colt to play a good game and the offense to get back on track with him under center. I also think Hillis will make up for his bad game last week against the Bills. The Browns can’t let the Bengals to get going because if they do it could be a long Sunday for the team. Joe Haden and T.J. Ward will be tested this weekend, at Paul Browns Stadium. This is a big game for Coach Mangini and he can’t afford to lose this one if he wants to keep his job.
