Cleveland at Cincinnati (+2.5), 44.0 o/u – Sunday, 1 p.m. EST
Neither team really has anything to play for — the Bengals are locked into the top pick in the 2020 draft, while the best the Browns can do is sneak into the bottom of the top 10 if a bunch of teams win this week that shouldn't — which makes it extra tough to determine who's going to use their starters and for how long. Or, in Cleveland's case, what kind of effort those starters will put in for a lame-duck coach. Nick Chubb at least has a rushing title and some individual milestones to compete for (the only other Browns RB to rush for 1,500 yards in a season is Jim Brown, which would be nice company to keep), while Odell Beckham Jr. is in striking distance of 1,000 receiving yards, so that might be motivation enough. It's the same story on the other sideline, as Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd both sit just shy of 1,000-yard campaigns. Cincy would probably like to go out on a high note for first-year coach Zac Taylor, and Andy Dalton is trying to bolster his resume for free agency, so this could end up as one of the more competitive games of Week 17.
