The Bengals can do something they've never done before against Cleveland

This might come as a surprise to some, but there is history on the line Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals play the Browns in Cleveland.

It's even positive history, at least if you're a fan of the Orange and Black.

After winning the last five games against their in-state rival, the Bengals have the opportunity to break their record for most consecutive wins in the series.

The first five-game winning streak for the Bengals against the Browns came from early 2004 through early ’06.

A win this weekend would also set Cincinnati up with a chance to tie the record for most consecutive Battle of Ohio victories by either team.

Cleveland won seven in a row from early 1992 through early ’95.
