Bengals vs. Browns 2022 NFL Week 8 Odds, Preview & Pick

By Hank Blaine

Week 8 in the NFL concludes with the Battle of Ohio as the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Cleveland Browns, who swept the season series in 2021 even though Cincinnati was clearly the better team.

Cincinnati was the AFC North champion last year and of course reached the Super Bowl while the Browns finished under .500, but Cleveland swept the season series. The game in Cleveland was Week 18 when the Bengals were resting pretty much all of their starters and Cleveland won 21-16.

Why Bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?

The Bengals won for the fourth time in five games last Sunday, 35-17 over Atlanta. Joe Burrow passed for 481 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions for a 138.2 rating and added a rushing touchdown while wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase recorded 130 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions.

Burrow is the third player in NFL history with at least 475 passing yards, three touchdown passes and one rushing touchdowns in a single game, joining Norm Van Brocklin (September 28, 1951) and Billy Volek (December 19, 2004). Burrow has five career games with at least 400 passing yards, surpassing Dan Marino (four) for the most such games by a player in his first three seasons all-time.

Burrow, who threw a 60-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyler Boyd, has 12 career touchdown passes of 50-or-more yards, tied with Marino and Fran Tarkenton for the most such touchdown passes by a player in his first three seasons in NFL history. Burrow tied Bernie Kosar for the fifth-most touchdown passes of 50-or-more yards by a player age 25 or younger in the Super Bowl era.

Chase, who appeared in his 24th career game on Sunday, has seven career games with at least 125 receiving yards, surpassing Amari Cooper (6 games), Victor Cruz (6), Andre Rison (6) and Marcus Robinson (6) for the second-most such games by a player in his first 25 career games in the Super Bowl era. Only Odell Beckham Jr. (11 games) has more.

Burrow ranks second in the league with 2,097 passing yards and third with 15 touchdown passes, while Chase ranks sixth with 605 receiving yards and tied for second with six touchdown receptions. In their 23 games together as Bengals teammates, they have now connected on 11 touchdowns of at least 30 yards, tied for the fourth-most such touchdowns by a quarterback and wide receiver duo each under the age of 26 in NFL history.

On Monday night, Burrow can become the first player in NFL history with at least 300 passing yards and a rushing touchdown in three straight games. He can also join Jack Kemp (1960) as the only players ever with at least three touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown in three consecutive games. Monday will mark Chase’s 25th career game and with a touchdown reception, he will join Beckham Jr. as the only players in the Super Bowl era with at least 2,000 receiving yards and 20 touchdown receptions in their first 25 career games.

Bengals’ coach Zac Taylor said that defensive tackle DJ Reader (knee) won’t be ready to return Monday. The Bengals will likely hold out Reader until after they return from their bye week on Nov. 20 vs. Pittsburgh. Linebacker Logan Wilson might return from injury on Monday. Defensive end Trey Hendrickson is in question.

Why Bet on the Cleveland Browns?

Cleveland lost its fourth in a row Sunday, 23-20 in Baltimore as a late 61-yard field goal attempt was blocked. Jacoby Brissett was 22 of 27 for 258 yards, but he was sacked five times and fumbled on one of them. The Browns lost tight end David Njoku to an ankle injury after he caught a team-high seven passes for 71 yards. He’s not expected to play Monday.

Pro Bowl cornerback Denzel Ward was still in concussion protocols as of Thursday – he has been in protocols since suffering the concussion in Week 5. If he is unable to play, rookie Martin Emerson will continue to see extra opportunities. Linebacker Jacob Phillips was hurt vs. the Bengals and was placed on injured reserve. Last season, a biceps injury limited Phillips to just four appearances. In his stead, Cleveland will likely lean on Deion Jones, who was acquired from Atlanta via trade Oct. 10.

Under is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings in Cleveland.
