The Cleveland Browns can defeat the New England Patriots this Sunday.
The Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots are battling for their playoff lives this Sunday. Yes, it may seem premature that Week 6 could spell doom and gloom for either club their seasons only get harder to deal with.
The Browns are now in limbo once again with Deshaun Watson, as another accusation has come out. The NFL and the Browns have loopholes in the Watson suspension agreement that any further allegations could result in further punishment. Considering the NFL’s abject failure with Dan Snyder, the Miami Dolphins, and how bad the Thursday Night Football games have been, maybe having Watson lingering over you like the Sword of Damocles isn’t the way to go.
For the Patriots, they have to deal with the fact that Mac Jones may not be ready to play on Sunday and if he is, still may not because Bailey Zappe has played well enough to warrant time. Despite the fact Jones was a Pro Bowler last year, Zappe has outplayed him in 2022. That said, accuracy is great and all but that only matters if you’re moving the ball and scoring touchdowns.
Neither man has shown to be very good at pushing the offense and the Patriots have relied on their running game to score most of their points. The Patriots’ ground game has five touchdowns, while the passing game has just four. Clearly, neither quarterback has been too impressive this season.
So why will either the Browns or Patriots win this game? Let’s talk.
