Fans of both teams watched the game on Channel 7 and heard the game on WHIO Radio Sunday afternoon as the Bengals won their fifth game in a row, 23-10.

News Center 7′s Brandon Lewis was at Fricker’s in Dayton for most of the fourth quarter where the Bengals were ahead.

He spoke with two men from the Miami Valley who are friends, one is a Bengals’ fan and another is a Browns fan.

Lewis asked each of them about their team’s season so far.

“Season’s been pretty good,” said Bill Baker, a Bengals fan. “Coaching has been a little iffy, give it another year, but I’m happy with what’s come out here lately.”

Fred Selanders, a Browns fan, says the team has a had, “a lot of ups and downs.”

“It’s kind of crazy, I think,” he told Lewis. “I’ve always been a Browns since I was a little guy. That’s all we had here, we didn’t have the Bengals back then. I like them. I’ll still hang with them.”

Cincinnati improves to 9-4 on the season while the Browns fall to 5-8.
