The Cleveland Browns have made two things pretty clear in the run up to Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.The first is that no one is worried about anything that former head coach Hue Jackson may share with the Bengals.Quarterback Baker Mayfield got the ball rolling earlier in the week in response to a question about Jackson sharing offensive secrets with the Bengals:Safety Jabrill Peppers doubled down on that on Friday Derrick Kindred Jersey , according to is understandable as the Browns shouldn’t have to fear the worst head coach in the history of the NFL now that he is not working on their side of the field.Cleveland’s task may be a bit easier as Cincinnati wide receiver A.J. Green is listed as questionable for the game. If Green can’t go that’s a big plus for the Browns as they won’t have to worry about a player who has 62 receptions and seven touchdowns in 13 career games against Cleveland.Green’s potential absence has safety Damarious Randall fired up, per is nice to hear the players showing confidence, but Sunday’s game still presents a challenge, even if Green is not in the lineup.The Bengals may not be the Pittsburgh Steelers or Baltimore Ravens, but they still have won seven consecutive games against the Browns. During that stretch the Browns have been outscored 213-63 and have held the Bengals to under 30 points just once.Muhammad Ali once said that “it’s not bragging if you can back it up.”The Browns are starting to talk a lot about Sunday’s game.Now they just need to back it up. The Cleveland Browns offensive line struggled to find its footing in the first half of the season. But as the season progressed and a few changes were made - replacing Desmond Harrison with Greg Robinson and left tackle, replacing running back Carlos Hyde with Nick Chubb Myles Garrett Color Rush Jersey , and turning the play calling over to offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens - the unit started to shine. Things were so good, especially along the interior of the line, that the Browns ended the season with the second-best offensive line in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus:According to the site:The bedrock of the line came on the inside, as guards Kevin Zeitler and Joel Bitonio were the top two pass-blocking guards in the league and center J.C. Tretter was third among centers in pass blocking, as the Browns gave up just five sacks over the final eight games of the season: Bitonio’s work did not go unnoticed elsewhere , as he was named to the Associated Press’ All-Pro second team on Friday. The honor is a credit to not only Bitonio’s play on Sundays, but his work during the week, head coach Gregg Williams told in all, not a bad season from a unit that former head coach Hue Jackson claimed the Browns did not invest in during his time with the franchise.
