Will the Cleveland Browns beat Houston in Week 10?
The Cleveland Browns are coming off their bye week and they have a home game against the Houston Texans on the schedule. Originally, this looked to be a tough game when the schedule was released, but Houston hasn’t been the team we expected in 2020.
Entering Week 10, they have a record of just 2-6 but they have two wins in the last four games — which also happens to be their first four games after firing head coach Bill O’Brien.
Before thinking former Cleveland head coach Romeo Crennel has everything fixed in Houston, it needs to be mentioned that each of their victories has come against the one-win Jacksonville Jaguars. That’s not to discount any wins because nothing is guaranteed, but it does mean the Browns should be favored in this one.
That seems to be the case for us as we have several predictions from the Dawg Pound Daily crew — which all seem to think the Browns are going to have some success on Sunday.
