Browns – Giants Matchup
It’s another contest for the orange and brown and the red-hot Giants come to town. Once again, expectations for success should be low – but let’s review why.
Locker Room Chatter
Following last week’s horrid performance, Browns players finally sounded off about the state of the franchise. I can’t imagine everyone shaking that off and coming together for a victory. What is more likely is continued frustration and finger pointing at others.
Again, I respect Josh McCown and the type of guy he is, but he will not win a game for the Browns. Anticipate a costly turnover or two – maybe with a touchdown in there too. Bottom line is that it will not be good enough for the orange and brown.
The Giants are Good
Let’s not forget who the Cleveland Browns are facing. Eli Manning does have a history of throwing multiple interceptions, while the opponent does not feature a stout rushing attack. However, Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard will likely see handfuls of attempts, yardage, and possibly touchdowns.
That Offensive Line
Let’s not forget about the unit upfront who has been ill-equipped to either run block or not kill the guy under center. Jason Pierre-Paul and company should feast on their counterparts at First Energy Stadium.
Conclusion: I’m predicting the Browns to lose again on Sunday – by at least two touchdowns. The good news is that the team finally hits their bye week after this matchup.
