This is the area in which the Browns will have the most success against the Bengals.
With the retirement of Carson Palmer, and the losses of Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, the Bengals offense is going to be extremely young, and a bit more than rusty.
The Browns are going to be swarming the ball both on the ground and in the air, and will cause at least three turnovers against the Bengals.
In his first game as a professional, Andy Dalton is going to get roughed up. Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard will be in on Dalton, forcing him to throw to the likes of Joe Haden and Sheldon Brown on the outsides.
Cedric Benson torched the Browns last season, but in this year's opener, the new defensive coaching and system will have them ready to stop Benson and the Bengals rush game.
All in all, a combination of a young offense and an improved Browns defense and secondary is going to be way too much for the Bengals to handle, and will lead to a rough day. Andy Dalton will throw at least two picks, as well as only 120 yards through the air. Benson will rush for 65 yards, but won't be able to reach the end zone.
