Cleveland Browns Week 7: Win at Ravens (6-1)

Normally, this is an L the Browns take because winning in Baltimore is so difficult, but with where this game is in the schedule, I’m feeling good about Cleveland’s chances.

My optimism is based off the defense owning Lamar Jackson when the two squads played in Baltimore last season.

Mark Andrews had haunted the Browns prior to Cleveland’s Nov. 28, 2021 matchup in Maryland, but the defense really made things tough for Lamar Jackson, intercepting him four times. Now, the Browns lost the contest 16-10 as they managed just three points off those turnovers, but with competent quarterback play, things will be different.

Cleveland Browns Week 8: Win vs Bengals (7-1)

Joe Burrow has taken the Cincinnati Bengals to the Super Bowl, but he’s yet to defeat the Cleveland Browns. Say what you want about Baker, but for whatever reason, he always had the Bengals’ number.

This game falls on Halloween night and will be broadcast on Monday Night Football. This is the game Pumpkin Head has been waiting his entire life for.

Cleveland Browns Week 9: Bye (7-1)

The Bye comes at a perfect time, at the exact halfway point of the season.

Cleveland Browns Week 10: Win at Dolphins (8-1)

Talk about a team that could use Baker Mayfield and doesn’t even realize it. The Browns make easy work of Tua and Miami.
