Browns vs Bengals Live
Baker Mayfield led the Browns to their second straight win last weekend over the Broncos, 17–16. Mayfield completed 18-of-31 for 188 yards, two touchdowns and one interception as Cleveland improved to 6–7–1 with the win.
The Bengals (6–8) beat the Raiders 30–16. QB Jeff Driskel went 14-of-33 for 130 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
The Browns (6-7-1) have a less than one percent chance of earning a playoff berth. Still, as they say, “So there’s a chance.” To begin, they’ll have to defeat the Bengals again after they whipped Cincinnati 35-20 during Week 12. That game was notable for how Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield dissed former Cleveland coach Hue Jackson for accepting a assistant position with the rival Bengals.
The Bengals (6-8) defeated the Oakland Raiders in Week 15 to snap a five-game losing streak. Second-year running back Joe Mixon has posted a breakout season. He’s fourth in the NFL in rushing with 995 yards.

Baker Mayfield leads the Browns (6-7-1) in Hue Jackson Revenge Game No. 2 against their in-state rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals (6-8), as Week 16 action continues on Sunday afternoon.
Cleveland has won four of its past five games. Even if the playoffs are on life support, the thought of finishing above .500 is something that Browns players like Jabrill Peppers take pride. Peppers told reporters this week:
The Browns have not defeated the Bengals twice in a season since 2002, coincidentally the last time the team made the postseason — with Kelly Holcomb under center. Cleveland also has a chance to hand Hue Jackson a second loss this season, and possibly the nail in the coffin to finally get Marvin Lewis fired.
