Week 8: Las Vegas Raiders at Browns
A lot of us still aren’t over the last game between the Browns and Raiders. It was in 2018 and it happened to be Baker Mayfield’s first official start. Cleveland should have had the win when Carlos Hyde ran a first down late that would have run out the clock. However, officials reviewed it and reversed the call — which was one of many terrible calls that went against the Browns that day.
The game went to overtime and Cleveland lost 45-42. Now, they get back at them in this one as they walk away with a double-digit win, making sure the refs won’t affect the outcome.
Score: Cleveland 33, Las Vegas 24
Week 9: BYE
After back-to-back wins, the Browns get a well-deserved week off. There’s really no better time to take a break than Week 9 since it’s in the dead center of the season.
Week 10: Houston Texans at Browns
After their rest, the Browns have a tough battle at home as they host the Houston Texans. Deshaun Watson was just given a massive extension and he’s worth every penny. Cleveland knows this all too well as he’s dropped some dimes against them in the past. He does so again here as he leads the Texans to a victory.
Score: Houston 31, Cleveland 20
Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles at Browns
The Philadelphia Eagles are coached by a former Cleveland Browns quarterback in Doug Pederson. He led them to a Super Bowl win in 2017 and they’re defending NFC East champions again. They’re a solid team and while Cleveland keeps it close, they knock in a long field goal to score an upset.
Score: Philadelphia 24, Cleveland 21
Week 12: Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars
Back-to-back losses sting but nothing can cure that quite like heading to Florida for a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This team is a dumpster fire this season and the Browns know that since Ronnie Harrison was added for a bag of potato chips then went to Twitter to proclaim his happiness to be out of Jacksonville.
The Browns will also see an old friend as Joe Schobert will be on the opposing sideline and he should be able to rack up plenty of tackles. That would be because the Browns will have a huge lead and will run it roughly 40 times.
Score: Cleveland 38, Jacksonville 10
November Record: 2-2
Overall Record: 6-5
