New, 1 comment

Though the ESPN experts overwhelmingly picked the Bengals, a few experts at both Yahoo and ESPN are going with the Browns.

Experts are somewhat split this week on the prospects for the 0-5 Cleveland Browns to collect their first win of the season when they welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to Browns Stadium on Sunday.

Over at Yahoo! Sports, both Mike Silver and Jason Cole went with the Browns to top the 3-2 Bengals at home, Silver, who has the best record among the three Yahoo! Sports experts, also picked the Browns to beat the Buffalo Bills in Week 3, but was mistaken. Yahoo's Les Carpenter is the lone dissenter among the group, going with the Bengals.

The large contingent of experts at ESPN are mostly giving the Bengals the advantage in the intriguing all-Ohio matchup on Sunday, as all but three experts are going with the Bengals in the meeting.

Among them, however, is NFL expert Chris Mortensen, who has gone a group-best 55-22 on the season. Also picking the Browns' way is Adam Schefter and coach Mike Ditka.
