It is Wednesday, October 26, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns are gearing up for the Halloween Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The top story for the Wednesday edition of Browns Nation news and notes offers a bit of perspective and good news as to where the team stands in the AFC North divisional race.
1. AFC North Reality Check
The AFC North division is very competitive this season.
The Ravens and Bengals are 4-3, and the Browns and Steelers sit at 2-5.

The Browns need to take care of business against the Bengals and hope for the Ravens to lose on Thursday night so that they are only one game out of first place at 3-5.
I can’t believe you guys want to throw the season away lol. If the #Ravens lose Thursday night and the #Browns win next Monday they are only 1 game back and Watson returns in 3 games with 3 division games left to be played

Though the Browns have not played well this season, there is some comfort in the fact that the Bengals started slowly and the Ravens and Steelers have their own problems.
No one is running away with the division, but the Browns need to be the Bengals on Monday to stay in the race.
2. Browns In The Community
With an extra day until the Monday night game in Week 8, there have been pleasant sightings of Browns players in the community.
