An Early Preview of Week 7 Browns vs Bengals

On week 7 of the 2024 NFL season the Cleveland Browns begin their AFC North Divisional play at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. Last season the Browns opened and closed their season against the Bengals. The Browns won the first game by a score of 24-3 and lost the season finale while resting starters 31-14. The most interesting aspect of this game is the Browns defense matching up against Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow.

Joe Burrow has a record of 1-5 against the Cleveland Browns. His last game in Cleveland Browns Stadium was one of his worst outings of his career. He was 14 for 31 for 82 yards with 0 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. It was more of a dominate performance by the Browns defense than a poor Joe Burrow showing. As I recall that was a bad weather game and Deshaun Watson had a mediocre game as well. He went 16 for 29 for 152 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Watson also ran for touchdown. Burrow was coming off a calf injury and did not practice much before the game. The true difference maker in this game was Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb.

The last full game played by Nick Chubb was against the Cincinnati Bengals in Cleveland. He rushed for 106 yards on 18 carries for a 5.89 yards per carry average. This game is expected to be Nick Chubb’s first game back in the Cleveland Browns starting lineup. Rumors have been recently reported that Nick Chubb could be back as early as week 1 versus Dallas. Or he can be ready to play by week 4. But most experts think he can realistically come back and play for this game. If this is Nick Chubb’s comeback game? The energy and emotions will be sky high in Cleveland Browns Stadium. The team and the fans will get a much-needed boost at the perfect time of the season. Because every division game will be important. Let us all hope as Browns fans that that will be case!
