Both Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals fans joined under one roof to watch the rival game on Sunday.

Members of the community met at The Barn around 1 p.m. for kick off  and to enjoy food while cheering on their favorite teams. One visitor says that he has been a Cleveland fan since the 1970’s, and although he says that the Browns aren’t doing the best he still has high hopes for the team.

"It’s been a different year, said Phil Harris." We are struggling with the quarterback situation, but I think we are getting better. The offensive line is getting better, take Joe Thomas, I played college football so I enjoy that part of it so I watch it a lot . "

Two local fans on the Cincinnati side explained why they are rooting for the Bengals.

I grew up in house full of Browns fans and the rebel I am I had to choose the other side, " said Doug Bennett.

"I like AJ Green because he is my favorite wide receiver, " said Landon Walter.

All of the Bengals support must have paid off. The team won the game 41-20 on Sunday.
