Week 4: Cleveland Browns 17, Cincinnati Bengals 6- Week 4

The Browns are 2-2 and tied for first in the AFC North.  Yes, you read that right.  The real shocker is that Cleveland is 2-0 since dealing Trent Richardson to the Colts.  Perhaps the more appropriate way to look at this is to say that the Browns are 2-0 since Brian Hoyer took over at quarterback for Brandon Weeden.  And in all honesty, Cleveland might not be that bad of a team.  They lost to Miami in the season opener, and the Dolphins are currently off to a hot start.  Then they dropped one on the road in Baltimore, but many teams suffer the same fate when the go on the road to play the Ravens.  So it is possible that these guys aren’t as bad as we all once thought.  Now on the other sideline the question that comes to mind here is: how good are the Bengals really?  They beat up on the Steelers and edged out the Packers at home but are still 2-2.  No, I am not suggesting that this is not a good team (they totally are).  I am just surprised that Cincy is not on top of their division at this point in the season.  They are actually in third with this loss to the Browns.  It is tough to win games when you can’t score points and it has really been since Week 1 when the Bengals have looked consistent on offense.  Andy Dalton will need to raise his level of play if this team is going to be an elite one.
