Week 6 at Cleveland Browns
This is the fourth year in a row these two teams will play and though the Chargers have won two of those, they haven’t exactly been impressive in those victories. Of course, the one defeat amounted to the only win the Browns had that season.
The Browns are coming off of an 0-16 season and all jokes aside, they do appear to be a team that will be much more competitive in 2018. Even when they weren’t competitive, they played the Chargers tough.
Though the Browns face the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints to start the year, they have winnable games against the New York Jets, Raiders and Baltimore Ravens that follow.
There’s a good chance this won’t be a winless, desperate team when the Chargers roll into town on October 14.
The Chargers have actually lost their last two games in Cleveland and this is a game in which the Browns could do it again.
Whether it be Tyrod Taylr or Baker Mayfield, the Browns will have a guy who can make plays at quarterback. The Chargers will be a hot team coming into this game at 5-1 if my predictions pan out, and the Browns will be ready to give them their best shot.
I know fans are’t going to like seeing a prediction where the Browns upset the Chargers, but the saying that “any given Sunday” is 100 percent true and the law of averages in the NFL suggests that the Chargers won’t be 7-1 at the halfway point of the season.
There is always a bump in the road. and this will be one of those.
Prediction: Browns 20, Chargers 17
