The Cleveland Browns are entering their bye week and have a lot left to play for. Here are 10 bold predictions for them during the final stretch of 2021.

Entering their Week 13 bye, the Cleveland Browns are 6-6 and have a lot of questions to answer. They’ve suffered tough losses to divisional rivals, including a 15-10 defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers and a Week 12 loss to the Ravens, 16-10.

Those weren’t their only low-scoring affairs either as they were held to just seven points by New England and defeated the Lions in Week 11 despite scoring only 13 points.

It’s clear they have to get the offense figured out and that will be the focal point of this week off. Here, however, we’ll be looking ahead to when the Browns are back on the field for their final five games with these 10 bold predictions down the stretch.

Cleveland Browns prediction No. 10: Browns convert every fourth-down attempt

One thing we have been frustrated with this season is Cleveland’s inability to convert on fourth down. Overall, they’re now 9-for-23 on fourth down tries which is just over 39 percent. While some can be forgiven, like when they’re facing a huge yardage situation in desperation mode, it’s the failed short-yardage attempts that get fans frustrated.

This first prediction is that Kevin Stefanski and the coaching staff will get it figured out and in the final five games, they convert every fourth-down try.

Cleveland Browns prediction No. 9: Jadeveon Clowney doubles current sack total

Entering Week 13, Jadeveon Clowney has just 3.5 sacks on the season which is not nearly indicative of how well he has been playing. In the Browns loss to Baltimore, he was in the offensive backfield most of the night but Lamar Jackson proved to be too slippery.

Of course, sacks come in bunches and Clowney is due to get his. Look for him to make it home several times in the following five games as he doubles his current sack total, finishing with at least seven on the season.
