Cleveland Browns

The Browns face off with their rival, Pittsburgh Steelers, in the final game of the new regimes “evaluation year.” The Steelers still have slight playoff hopes (a win plus losses by the Ravens, Dolphins and Chargers) going into this game so expect the full gamut from them. The first game, in Cleveland, between these two teams was a 27-11 defeat for the Browns. The Browns have a number of injuries and will play a number of youngsters in this game. Only the rivalry energy and Josh Gordon gives the Browns a chance in this game, lets give them 20%.


Based on our expectations for each game we will see losses by the Browns, Bucs, Falcons, Raiders and Jaguars with close games for the Vikings and Redskins, which we will predict wins for both squads. Assuming those to be true the Browns would be tied for the second worst record with 5 other teams leading to SOS deciding who picks in what position. Meaning the Browns could select anywhere from 2nd to 7th. As stats of this nature are not my strong suit I have reached out to a few fine folks on twitter to get the answer, and will update as soon as I know something.
