Bengals receiver Greg Little criticizes Browns and their coach

Receiver Greg Little sees the Bengals' next game as a chance to make a point to the Browns.

Cleveland released Little in May after his three inconsistent seasons there. The Bengals signed him to bolster a group of receivers that's been thinned by injuries.

Little has four catches for 55 yards in three games with Cincinnati (5-2-1), which hosts the Browns (5-3) on Thursday night with first place in the AFC North on the line.

Little is still unhappy over how the Browns let him go. He said on Tuesday that "everything about this game is personal" to him. He also criticized Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine, saying he had little interaction with him.
