Cleveland Browns Week 9: Win at Bengals (7-2)

Joe Burrow will be back from his knee injury in 2021, and he should be better with an already good wide receiving corps getting a jolt with the selection of Ja’Marr Chase in the draft.

Cincinnati didn’t make easy on Cleveland in both games the two rivals played last season, though, and I anticipate this game will go the same way. Cleveland has at the better roster though, and the cream will rise to the top in the end, just as it did a season ago.

Cleveland Browns Week 10: Win at Patriots (8-2)

I gave the Browns the win here, but it wasn’t an easy one to award. The Pats are obviously down after losing Tom Brady, but Bill Belichick is hot on the trail of catching Don Shula for the most all-time victories.

Cam Newton may make a play here or there, but he’s on the downside of his career. Even if he plays well, I just don’t see the Patriots having enough to best the Browns this day.
