How to bet on the NFL

The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns gets NFL Week 2 underway with an Ohio derby at FirstEnergy Stadium. The Browns lost 38-6 to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, while the Bengals also lost their opener as they went down 16-13 to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Cleveland Browns Form

The Browns continued their tradition of heavy defeats against division rivals Baltimore Ravens when losing comprehensively 38-6 in Week 1. The Browns leaked 24 points in the opening half of Kevin Stefanski’s first game as head coach.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield struggled to find his targets in the defeat to the Ravens, and the could switch focus to Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb after the pair combined for 132 rushing yards on 23 carries last week.

Cincinnati Bengals Form

There was no win to begin - or touchdown throw - Joe Burrow's spell as Bengals quarterback, but Cincinnati were competitive for much of the three-point defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Bengals had chances to win the game and could have tied things up in the final seconds after setting up a field goal chance for Randy Bullock late. But it was not to be a winning NFL debut for Burrow.
