Browns vs. Bills 5 bold predictions: Ground game goes wild in Week 11
By Randy Gurzi
The Cleveland Browns head to Buffalo to take on the Bills, who have lost two in a row. Here are five bold predictions for the Week 11 contest.
In Week 11, the Cleveland Browns will travel to the east side of Lake Erie to take on the Buffalo Bills. One of the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl, Buffalo is in the midst of a rough patch as they’ve lost their past two games.
Now at 6-3, they aim to get back on track against the Browns who are 3-6 following an embarrassing loss to the Miami Dolphins. After that loss down in the heat of South Beach, the Browns will try and get an upset win in a game that will be played in a blizzard.
Let’s look ahead to their latest challenge with five bold predictions against the Bills.
Browns vs. Bills: 5 bold predictions in Week 11
5. Cleveland’s offensive line gives up four sacks
Not every prediction can be a fun one.
It’s no secret that Cleveland’s offensive line has struggled this season. Week 10 was especially bad as Jacoby Brissett was sacked three times and had to run out of the pocket on several occasions as well.
Unfortunately, things won’t be much better in Week 11. As good as the Dolphins’ defensive line is, the Bills have more firepower. Led by Von Miller, who has eight already, Buffalo has 27 sacks on the year. Most of their damage comes off the edge with Miller, Greg Rousseau (5.0 sacks), A.J. Epenesa (3.5 sacks), and Boogie Basham (2.0 sacks) leading the way.
That’s could spell doom for the Browns with Jedrick Wills struggling and Jack Conklin coming off his worst game of the year. Watch for Buffalo’s edge rushers to have their way with the tackles as they sack Brissett at least four times in this one.
