Red Right 88

In Cleveland, hope dies last

And if he is, it could mean a final seven-game stretch that could push the Browns into the playoffs.

If the Browns can bring the type of defensive pressure on Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton that they did against Kansas City’s Alex Smith and Baltimore’s Joe Flacco, they stand a chance of beating the Bengals in Cincinnati for the first time since 2008.

Pull out a win against the Bengals and suddenly things could get very interesting for the Browns.
