The Cincinnati Bengals are feeling pretty confident ahead of their game against the Cleveland Browns this weekend. They just defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football, a team that has been a relative powerhouse over the past 10 years.

“We go to Cleveland next week (Week 4),” Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday. “I’m feeling pretty good about that, a little better about that.”

In case you were wondering if Trent Richardson’s trade from the Browns to the Indianapolis Colts has anything to do with that, well it does.

“Anytime a great young player like Trent Richardson leaves your division — now we still get to face him this year, but once instead of twice,” Lewis said. “He’s a fine player and, I think, has a big career ahead of him, so not bad that he drives two hours west of us instead of four hours north.”

Not having to game plan for the hard hitting running back is a plus. The Browns are bringing in Willis McGahee to carry the ball. So besides playing a running back who has been sitting on a couch for since for month they also decided to start third string quarterback Brian Hoyer.
