Cleveland Browns score predictions: Looking for a Texas-sized win vs. Cowboys in Week 4
By Randy Gurzi

Game: Cleveland Browns (2-1) at Dallas Cowboys (1-2)
Summary: The Cleveland Browns travel to Jerry World sporting an above .500 record for the first time since 2014 when they take on the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. Both teams come into the Week 4 matchup boasting high-powered offenses and defenses that are dealing with injuries and struggling as a result. As well as Dallas’ offense has played, the Cowboys are a watermelon kick away from being 0-3.
Defensively the Browns have their work cut out for them. Dallas has put up over 900 yards of offense over the last two games. Stopping the Cowboys offense will not be an option, as Dak an company will put up points. The focal point for the Browns defense needs to be on creating turnovers. If the Browns are able to force two or three turnovers, they can supply the offense enough extra possessions to escape the Lone Star State with a win. I am predicting a huge three-sack game for Myles Garrett as he returns home to Arlington, Texas for the first time as a professional.
On the offensive side of the ball, Baker Mayfield is going to be asked to do more from a production standpoint than he has so far in the first three weeks. That will be a prerequisite if the Browns plan to keep up with the Cowboys’ high-octane offense. Head coach Kevin Stefanski needs to turn up Mayfield’s volume while still staying in the structure of the offense. With Kareem Hunt’s availability unknown at this time, the running game will be handled by a red hot Nick Chubb this week. Expect Chubb to see 25 plus carries, and gash the Cowboys for a couple of long touchdown runs as a result of the extra work. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry should both be heavily involved in this week’s game plan. Both receivers should see the endzone this week, with a multiple touchdown game possible for Beckham.
If you are a fan of defensive football, you might want to look away. First team to 40 wins.
Cleveland Browns 40, Dallas Cowboys 38
