This Week
Browns Vs. Raiders Score
Jared I've been against the grain when it comes to Derek Carr. I don't love his footwork under pressure. I think the Browns pressure him into mistakes, but also give up a couple big plays. Josh McCown starts a little slow but the Browns offense gets humming off a big turnover. A combination of good run and pass game compliments a great defensive performance. 27-14 CLE
Andrea Josh McCown is not going to look good in this game, but it won't matter too much, because Cleveland's defense will have a just-fine showing against young Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. 21-16 (CLE)
Barry This will be a tight contest, and turnovers will be key. If McCown throws a couple of picks, First Energy could turn on him quickly. Derek Carr and the Raiders present a challenge, but the Cleveland Browns defense again shows up to create pressure on a young quarterback and the Browns running game finally comes alive. 27-20 - CLE
Fred Browns Win
Hayden The Browns are going to have to use their defense more so than their offense in this one. The Raiders suddenly boast a formidable, young offensive attack that will cause problems for a Browns secondary that was relatively untested by Marcus Mariota. If they can attack Carr as they ambushed Mariota, that shouldn't be a problem. On offense, well, just hope that Josh McCown can slowly, but surely lead them down the field. If he can't do so, it might be a long day. 14-10 CLE
Lane Just because 23-17 CLE
Rick So the defense showed me something last week. If they can pressure the QB close to what they did against the Titans I think they have a good shot. Plus the Raiders are coming across the country and all of those stats. 24-10 CLE

What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the picks this week?
