Much like their first matchup, the Cleveland Browns travel to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday with both teams in desperate need of a bounce-back effort.

 

Then, a 35-30 win in Week 2 by the Browns, it was Cleveland that shook off a rout on the road the week before to get on track and kick-start a four-game winning streak. Cleveland (4-2) is hoping for more of the same after a humiliating 38-7 loss at the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.

 

The Browns would appear to be on track for their first winning record since 2007, but it doesn't feel that way to quarterback Baker Mayfield.

 

"The feeling throughout (our) building after that loss -- 4-2 has never felt so much like 0-6 before," Mayfield said. "But that's because we have very high expectations for ourselves."

 

Wideout Odell Beckham Jr. was even more succinct. He was spotted pacing the sidelines and yelling in the late stages of the blowout at Pittsburgh.

 

"I'm pissed," Beckham said. "And at this point, I don't really care to keep trying to make myself look like a good guy to the world and all that. ... Tired of losing. Tired of losing to good teams."

 

It's a sentiment all too familiar in Cincinnati (1-4-1) where the Bengals lost another winnable game on Sunday in a 31-27 setback at the Indianapolis Colts. Cincinnati raced to a 21-0 lead, but lost after a missed fourth-quarter field goal and rookie Joe Burrow's interception in the red zone inside the final minute.

 

"I played really well for three quarters and 14 minutes and then had one bad play," said Burrow, who has four 300-yard passing games in six starts this season. "Put it behind us and go back to work tomorrow."

 

Mayfield is saying the same thing. He's thrown for 1,095 yards with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions this season, but his issues have been at the forefront of Cleveland's two losses which came by a combined 76-13 score at division rivals Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

 

Mayfield played with injured ribs on Sunday. He said it was a non-issue, but admitted he's feeling better this week. And the third-year quarterback swears the chatter about his status -- he was benched in the second half at Pittsburgh -- isn't a distraction.

 

"I don't give a damn what they say," Mayfield said. "We know we can be better. I know I can be better. The outside noise doesn't matter. They get paid to talk and we get paid to do our work."

 

There's been drama in Cincinnati as well. Media reports had cornerback Darius Phillips and defensive end Carlos Dunlap venting about their roles on the defense, and wide receiver John Ross III wants a trade according to another anonymous report.

 

"We've got a group of guys that I believe in that want to handle things the right way. Sometimes, guys get frustrated and say things," Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor said. "It happens sometimes."

 

Burrow has been solid so far, completing 65.0 percent of his league-high 246 pass attempts for 1,617 yards. But he's also been sacked 24 times, second most in the league.

 

Running back Joe Mixon (428 rushing yards, three touchdowns) did not practice Wednesday with an injured foot. He rushed for a team season-high 151 yards in the Bengals' lone win in Week 4 vs. Jacksonville.

 

The Browns lead the NFL in rushing (169.5 yards per game) with Kareem Hunt (387 yards) filling in admirably for starter Nick Chubb (knee), who remains on injured reserve. Starting right guard Wyatt Teller (calf) also may miss a second consecutive game after not practicing Wednesday. The defense, led by Myles Garrett's 7.0 sacks, has been weak in the back end where cornerback Greedy Williams (shoulder) remained on IR.

 

Cleveland rushed for 215 yards, sacked Burrow three times, and Garrett provided a momentum-shifting strip sack to set up a score in the Browns' Week 2 win.

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Baker Mayfield shook off a dreadful start to complete a franchise-record 21 straight passes and toss five touchdowns as the Cleveland Browns survived a big effort from Joe Burrow to beat the Bengals 37-34 on Sunday in Cincinnati.

Mayfield didn't complete a throw (0-for-5 passing) in the first quarter. But the third-year quarterback finished 22 of 28 for 297 yards, and the five touchdown passes were a career high.

Mayfield's only incompletion after the string of 21 came on a spike to stop the clock with 16 seconds left and the Bengals leading 34-31. On the next snap, Mayfield found rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones down the right sideline for a 24-yard game-winning touchdown reception with 11 seconds left.

Myles Garrett had two sacks and set a franchise record with a sack in a sixth straight game. Rookie tight end Harrison Bryant caught two touchdowns, and Kareem Hunt had 102 yards from scrimmage and a score as the Browns (5-2) picked up a season sweep over the Bengals (1-5-1).

Rookie quarterback Burrow was sensational as he completed 35 of 47 for a career-high 406 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Wide receiver Tyler Boyd had 11 catches for 101 yards and a score, and fellow flankers Tee Higgins (five catches, 71 yards, one touchdown) and A.J. Green (seven, 82 yards) tormented the Browns' secondary continuously.

Burrow flipped a 3-yard touchdown to Giovanni Bernard on fourth down with 1:06 remaining to move Cincinnati in front. But Mayfield had enough time to complete three passes and spike the ball before throwing the game-winner.

For a second straight game, Mayfield was picked off on his first pass of the day. Darius Phillips had the honor for the Bengals, and Cleveland wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) was injured in trying to run Phillips down after the turnover. Beckham did not return.

Burrow scored on a 1-yard sneak three plays after the takeaway for a 7-0 lead.

Garrett's strip-sack on Burrow set up a 43-yard field goal by Cody Parkey to make it 7-3 with 1:21 left in the first quarter.

Mayfield hit Bryant with a pair of touchdowns, a 3-yarder that tied it at 10 in the first half, and a 6-yarder that made the score 17-17 in the third.

Burrow capped a stellar first half by threading an 11-yard touchdown to Boyd with 15 seconds left for a 17-10 lead at the break. Burrow was 20-of-25 passing for 234 yards and the score in the first half.

The Bengals went back up 20-17 with Randy Bullock's 23-yard field goal with 2:52 left in the third.

Mayfield's 16-yard touchdown to David Njoku gave the Browns a 24-20 lead early in the fourth, but Burrow answered with a 16-yarder touchdown to Higgins.

Mayfield's 18th straight completion was to a wide-open Hunt in the left flat for an 8-yard touchdown and a 31-27 Browns lead with 4:53 remaining.
