In another episode of AFC North "Take your pick," we highlight this week's Battle of Ohio between the Cleveland Browns (4-10) and Cincinnati Bengals (2-11-1).

Do not let the records fool you.

The Browns have twice the wins but are playing some of the worst football in the NFL right now. They haven't scored an offensive touchdown since Nov. 17, and Cleveland also is down to its third-string quarterback in Ken Dorsey.

The Bengals, meanwhile, are coming off their second win of the season against the Washington Redskins. They're playing with their second-string quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick but will play on the road, where Cincinnati is 0-7 this season.

So who has the edge in this tantalizing matchup? Can the Browns break a four-game losing streak or will the Bengals get their first road win?

Take your pick.
