Five reasons the Cleveland Browns will upend the LA Rams on Sunday Night Football, hopefully getting a share of first place in the AFC North in the process.

The Cleveland Browns are right back in another big game, hosting the LA Rams at FirstEnergy Stadium for Sunday Night Football.

I’ve seen one line surprisingly favors the Browns by 3 points points mid-week, which is good, because at least a tight game is being expected by Vegas.

That said, the Browns, local are being viewed as underdogs, and that’s a good thing (more on that later).

This game is huge for the Browns because the AFC North was blown wide open with the news that Ben Roesthlisberger is now out for the season. With the Bengals expected to dwell in the cellar, the division looks like it should come down to the Ravens and the Browns.

While Cleveland has a tough test this week, Baltimore is up against it as well, playing Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

If things play out the way we think they should, Mahomes should deliver Lamar Jackson his first lost of the season.

As for the Browns, what better way to make a statement than to beat the Rams, who are on the favorite, proving that all of the offseason hype was justified.

A victory here, along with a Ravens loss, would see the Browns tie Baltimore heading into the quarter-poll of the season.And the two teams happen to play each other in Week 4.

Here’s five reasons the Browns can get it done, upsetting the defending NFC champs at home in primtime.
