What channel is Bengals vs. Browns on today? Schedule, time for 'Monday Night Football' in Week 8 – Sporting News

  • October 31, 2022

It’s spooky season, and the Bengals are trying to avoid a horror show against the Browns on Halloween.
The Bengals had some trouble with their division rivals in 2021. While they marched all the way to the Super Bowl, Joe Burrow and the Bengals lost both matchups to the Browns and were outscored 62-32 in the process. Scary stuff, really.
The masks are coming off for both teams: The Browns are sitting at 2-5 and waiting for the return of Deshaun Watson, which won’t be for another three weeks, and likely won’t save their season. Burrow’s boys are winners of four of their last five and returning to form, with back-to-back 30-point performances in wins over the Saints and the Falcons.
