SNF, Los Angeles Rams at Cleveland Browns

Andrew Elderbaum

The Browns are riding high after beating the remnants of the Jets. This week they will be playing an actual NFL level team though, and will probably not fare as well. Todd Gurley and his mysterious knee have not been an issue so far this year and the Rams are about roll on to a 3 and 0 record. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods are going to shred the Browns secondary.   Rams 31 Browns 17.

The Cleveland Browns and LA Rams matchup will have all the offensive hype but will end in a defensive battle. Both team’s defenses will be up for the task as touchdowns will be hard to come by all game. The Browns wide receiver duo of Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry will make enough plays to set up a game-winning field goal to send Cleveland fans home happy. Browns win

This is a complete gut-feeling pick. Heading into this season, the Cleveland Browns were one of the most hyped teams that we have seen this decade. After an ugly loss and an ugly win in the first two weeks, the narrative has completely flipped on the Browns, so much so that they are now probably undervalued. Vegas still only gives the Rams three points in this contest, but the popular consensus is that they will steamroll the Browns.

This is a textbook game where the best version of the Browns comes out and shocks the Rams at home. Jared Goff will struggle a bit in primetime on the road, as he has before, leaving the window open long enough for the Browns to get through some of Baker Mayfield‘s mistakes to win by one. Then, suddenly, the headlines on Monday morning will be about how we should not have just given up on the Browns after two weeks. Cleveland 27, Rams 26.

Ed Stein

After watching Cleveland play the Jets, I remain unimpressed by them. The Rams have too much talent to fall on Sunday night, even though they are on the road. L.A. can more than cover OBJ and Jarvis Landry, forcing Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield into mistakes. The young signal-caller had better hope that Aaron Donald can’t play at full strength, if he is close to 100 percent, then Mayfield will spend lots of time looking up at the lights. Rams win.
