The Cincinnati Bengals are flying high after their tough road win over a division rival that has dominated them in recent years. It seems to have been an official changing of the guard. If they were playing any other football team on a short week after that big win, I'd probably be predicting an upset win.

However, the Cleveland Browns are rolling with Johnny Manziel this week, so you can throw whatever offensive trends the Browns have had out the window. As you can tell from my tone of writing, I do not think Manziel is going to do much tonight against the Bengals defense.

It also doesn't help that the Browns defense is one of the worst in the NFL, so I have a feeling Andy Dalton and that offense are going to have a field day at home on Thursday Night Football. They will force Johnny Football to beat them with his arm and I just don't see how that will happen outside of maybe a drive or two.

Prediction: Bengals 27, Browns 6

What is your prediction, Broncos Country?
