If you are looking for an NFL game that will get all football fans running to their televisions this Sunday, look no further. The Cleveland Browns are headed to the state where music plays freely to take on the Tennessee Titans. Hands down the game of the week. Sarcasm of course. The Browns remain win-less, following a loss once again last week to Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Titans on the other hand went on the road and came away with their second win against the Dolphins.
The Browns are simply a mess of a team. One thing they seem to do well is run the ball, as they rank fifth in the league with 124 yards on the ground a game. Outside of that, the team cannot seem to do anything else right. Quarterback Cody Kessler left last weeks game with an injury, but after practicing this week, he seems on track to play in this one. But even while he has been under center, the team has not been able to pull out any wins. After giving them a shot the last few weeks, I find it hard to go back to them once again given they have disappointed me the last two times I picked them.
The Titans on the other hand are one of those teams who are a little better than most give them credit for. They may not have much of a defense, but they have some legit pieces on offense. Marcus Mariota had a career game a week ago, and proved he has the ability to be dangerous. DeMarco Murray has been an absolute stud in his first five weeks in a Titans uniform, and this week should be no different facing the Browns defense (If you play daily fantasy football, he is certainly worth it this week). As I mentioned earlier, the Browns only good feature is the run game. But it just so happens the Titans are better in that category.
So if the Titans do the one thing the Browns do well, even better, what reason do I have to believe in Cleveland in this one? The answer: I have no reason. This one I am all in on Tennessee. The Browns may get some points, but at the end of the day, the Titans come out on top by 10 or so.
