Old Ohio rivals square off in Cincinnati

The storyline
The Bengals are counting down the days until Marvin Lewis and others leave the organization. The Browns need another strong December to ensure their coach doesn't endure a similar fate.

Why you should watch
Peyton Hillis is all-effort in the run and pass game. Perhaps Colt McCoy comes back. The Bengals better hope the Browns' fans travel well or this is gonna be an empty house./p>
