While it wouldn't be terribly shocking to see the game go either way, the game could still bring some surprises. With that in mind, here are three bold predictions for the Browns against the Bengals.
3. Browns Run for 200+ Yards
Given the short week and the passing struggles in Week 1, Cleveland could take a run-heavy approach on Thursday. The Browns ran for 138 yards on 27 carries against the Baltimore Ravens. With both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt ready to go in the backfield, they have the potential to have the most dangerous running back duo in the league. Look the Kevin Stefanski-led team to prove it this week.
2. Myles Garrett Records More Than One Sack
Myles Garrett was quiet in Week 1, recording only a single tackle. Look for that to change against a Bengals' offensive line that gave up three sacks and a ton of pressures to the Los Angeles Chargers. Garrett has recorded two sacks in his last three games against Cincinnati, so expect that trend to continue.
1. Cody Parkey Hits Multiple Field Goals
Austin Seibert was cut from the Browns on Monday, after missing an extra point and a field goal. They brought in Cody Parkey, who has an 84.3 percent average for his career. The Bengals played solid red zone defense in Week 1, forcing the Chargers to attempt three field goals. Look for this to continue, with Parkey attempting, and making, multiple kicks.
