A sampling of 23 NFL experts brings a unanimous prediction that the Browns will lose to the Bengals in Week 2.

The Cleveland Browns hit the road in Week 2 for a game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon, and experts from ESPN, CBS and Yahoo! all predict the Browns are headed for a loss. In fact, there isn't a single expert across those three networks who thinks Brandon Weeden and the Browns can pull of an upset over Andy Dalton and the Bengals.

The unanimity of expert picks is staggering. All 12 experts on the ESPN panel have sided with Cincinnati, everyone on the eight-man panel at CBS agrees the Bengals will prevail and the each member of the remaining trio from Yahoo! has selected Cincinnati as well. A clean sweep from 23 NFL experts on any game is difficult to achieve, so it's safe to say the Browns are entering Week 2 as an underdog.
