That doesn't mean there isn't extra motivation this weekend, when the two Ohio teams meet.
"The guys in Cincinnati know how I play," said Rucker, who will serve as a game captain. "Obviously there's nothing dirty about the way I play football. It's just really high spirited, high energy and really physical. They've got a good group over there, and we've got a great group over here. We're gonna get after it."
Rucker signed a five-year, $21-million deal with the Browns in March to cross the state. He's been a big hit in the locker room with his music selection. Rucker had three tackles in the Week 1 loss to the Eagles.
