Weeks 5 -8

Week 5, Oct. 7, @ 49ers, 8:15 p.m., ESPN: The Browns go back on Monday Night Football for another compelling game. Who could forget Kyle Shanahan‘s power point presentation pleading with the Browns to let him go? And then there’s the Sashi Brown failing to trade for Jimmy G, who will be healthy. These are two up-and-coming teams in the league, but I don’t like this one for the Browns on the road.

Prediction: L (3-2)

Week 6, Oct. 13, Seahawks, 1 p.m., FOX: Seattle has Russell Wilson, so they have a chance, but if the Browns remain relatively healthy, they should have the edge in this one.

Prediction: W (4-2)

Week 7: Bye…Considering the Browns will have played three primetime games and are 4-2? You’ve got to like the big-game experience the team got while still managing to be two games over .500 six games into the season.

Week 8: Oct. 27, @ Patriots, 4:25 p.m. CBS: This is one of the most coveted time slots outside of Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Football. Jim Nance and Tony Romo will be there front and center.

Unfortunately, while Baker plays with a chip on his shoulder, so does former sixth-round G.O.A.T., who goes by the name Tom Brady. Expect it to be competitive, but it’s Brady, not Baker, who pulls it out at the end.

Prediction: L (4-3)
