The OBR NFL Predictions: Week 2

Just as we did with our Weekly NFL Power Rankings, The OBR staff got together to make predictions for the slate of games for Week 2 in the NFL. We will do so weekly and keep track of how our experts do over the season. We will also give some quick thoughts on every Cleveland Browns game.

Browns Vs. Titans Score
Jared Marcus Mariota was my favorite prospect, right ahead of Danny Shelton, in this year's draft. The Bucs are terrible and the Browns were 3 fluke plays away from a close game or win against the Jets. While there was a lot to be worried about last week, the Browns right the ship and win this one at home. Browns 20-17
Andrea Browns head coach Mike Pettine and coordinator Jim O'Neil should have a field day schemeing for a rookie QB like Marcus Mariota. The only question? The run defense, which gave up 154 yards to the Jets last week and can be gashed again by Bishop Sankey and an especially-motivated Terrance West. Still, pound-for-pound, the Browns' roster has a far greater talent advantage over the Titans and, if actually used correctly, should lead to a Cleveland home win. Browns 21-16
Barry Marcus Mariota will find things a bit harder against a motivated Cleveland Browns defense, and the Browns luck will turn somewhat offensively regardless of whether McCown or Manziel is behind quarterback. Browns fans should remember how badly the team dominated Tampa Bay in pre-season before assuming Titans are suddenly unstoppable. This one goes to Cleveland. Browns 24-17
Fred In the turnabout world of the NFL, Browns fans will come back off the ledge for at least a week as the defense gives rookie QB Marcus Mariota the kind of treatment the Buckeyes did in the national championship game. Browns 21-13
Hayden The Browns will play much better this week, but will still have problems figuring out the running game and developing a solid gameplan for Johnny Manziel. While they did struggle last week, the Browns run defense won't have much trouble containing Sankey and West, but Mariota will be just good enough to squeak past Johnny and give the Titans their second win. Titans 24-23
Lane Browns 23-20
Rick Titans 27-13
OBR's Pick Browns
