One of the underreported stories of the year is how the Cardinals may waltz to a division title in the NFC West this season. They get a chance to tack on a win this week against Cleveland.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET and the question still remains whether we are going to get some Johnny Football this weekend.
After losing their DC there was some thought that the Cardinals would take a step back on that side and that the rest of the team would not be able to compensate. They were wrong on both fronts.
The defense might be a little off where it was a year ago but they are giving up less than 20ppg and are in the top 7 in all major categories.
Further, Carson Palmer is having his best season ever as a pro and the Cardinals are second in the league in scoring at 32ppg. On that side of the ball they are in the top ten in all major categories and as a result they are one of the more balanced teams in the league.
If retread RB is ready to be a star again they are that much better too.
This is their last game before the bye next week…Seattle is after that for those who like to keep track.
The Browns are reaching the midway point of the season exactly where we thought they would be, under .500 and out of the race. I guess there was some thought maybe their defense might carry them a little but that hasn’t happened.
So far the most effective part of the team has been the pass game with Josh McCown leading the way. Gary Barnidge has been a nice surprise for fantasy players this season with 5 TDs but there is still no reason to fear these guys plus their numbers are inflated from always being behind.
This week McCown is questionable which is kind of scary. Johnny Manziel is dangerous to both sides and I don’t like the idea of the Cardinals secondary lurking back there ready to pick the ball.
The Browns have been a winning spread team this season but I don’t know what to make of that (4-3). Mostly I am staying away from these guys. I don’t know how you can handicap them effectively.

I hate these in between numbers but like I said before, I don’t see how you can get behind the Browns here, even at home. This is a perfect teaser play.
