As we dive into Week 2 of the NFL season, the Bengals and Browns matchup is sure to be an interesting and entertaining. We have two polarizing teams. First, the Bengals drafted Joe Burrow to spearhead their rebuild. Are they for real? Second, the Browns continue to lean on Baker Mayfield, and their rebuild is stalling, for lack of a better term. Let's take a closer look at tonight's game for DraftKings' Showdown slate.

The flashy Mayfield can look every bit of a successful quarterback at times while also looking completely lost and overwhelmed at others. Against Cincinnati last year, Mayfield struggled in two games, accumulating three touchdowns and five turnovers. Mayfield was also sacked seven times in the two matchups. I would expect a better effort from the expected franchise leader, especially considering how the season started for the Browns getting embarrassed by their division rival Ravens.
