Week 2 Bengals at Browns could be a pivotal game in the young careers of both Joe Burrow and Baker Mayfield

Primetime TV hasn’t always been kind to the Bengals , but they hope Joe Burrow ’s moxie can change that narrative.

This is a big game not only for the trajectories of the 2020 seasons for Cincinnati and Cleveland, respectively, but also for the outlook for the careers of Burrow and Baker Mayfield .

However, with the Bengals having so many primetime demons, Burrow exorcising those on the road in “The Battle of Ohio” could prove to be a huge step in his career.

John Sheeran and Anthony Cosenza talked about the importance of this game for both quarterbacks and their respective teams, for differing reasons, on this week’s Orange and Black Insider.

“I watched just the first half of that Ravens game (versus Cleveland in Week 1), and I listened to Robert Mays and Nate Tice on The Athletic podcast and they said it better than I could: ‘When is Baker not going to see ghosts anymore’,” Sheeran said.

He’ll have to show more signs of improvement this week—especially with 0-2 teams recently having about a 12 percent chance of making the postseason, based on past results.
