The Cleveland Browns have a chance to become a legitimate threat to win the AFC North division if they can go into the Queen city and pull-off a win against their in-state rivals in the Cincinnati Bengals, who lead the North by just 1.5 games. A win would also give the Browns a season-sweep and assure them that a tie between the two teams at the end of the year would leave the Browns crowned division champs.
But thy’ll need a healthy quarterback to have any hopes of doing so, and after losing Brian Hoyer for the year already, the last thing Browns fans needed to see was Jason Campbell walking off the field injured last week vs the Baltimore Ravens after he injured his ribs. But he was able to return and lead Cleveland to an improbable win over the defending Super Bowl champs, and he says he’s healthy enough to play this week in the team’s AFC North showdown with their in-state rivals:
The Bye week gave his sore ribs a chance to settle down. He came back and took to the field showing no signs of an injury. He was able to make all of his throws without feeling any restrictions.
He is ready to travel to Cincinnati to get his second consecutive win over one of the Browns divisional rivals. Campbell knows what is at stake in this game and his leadership will help to keep the Browns offense focused on the prize.
For the first time since the 1995 season the Cleveland Browns have a chance to sweep the Bengals.
He’s 1-1 as a starter since coming in for relief of the ineffective Brandon Weeden and has thrown five TDs vs no interceptions in his two starts.
