The Chargers have lost 2 straight and are at 1-2 and could really use a home win this Sunday. They are a 7.5-point betting favorite facing a Browns’ team that has a big QB controversy in the making.
Johnny Manziel was benched after leading the Browns to a win in Week 3, but even though the fans want him under center Josh McCown should get the start.
Cleveland’s big goal in this game is stop Phillip Rivers and after leading the NFL in INT last season the Browns only have 1 pick so far this season.
McCown has lost both of his starts this season, but in last week’s 27-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders he passed for 341 yards with 2 TD and 1 INT. It is not all his fault, as the Browns have a less than stellar WR corps, an offensive line that gave up 5 sacks last week in the 27-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders and only rushed for 39 yards.
The play of the Browns’ QB’s has gotten all the press, but the rushing offense has been a major issue as well ranking 25th in the league.
San Diego Chargers
The Chargers are back at home where they won the first game of the season after losing the last 2 on the road.
Phillip Rivers has a solid WR led by Keenan Allen, but he has also not had a lot of help from the rushing offense and the offensive line has given up 8 sacks in the last 2 games.
The RB’s, of Melvin Gordon, Danny Woodhead, and Duke Johnson will have a chance to pad their stats in this game facing a Cleveland run defense that ranks dead last in the NFL.
Rivers leads a San Diego passing attack that averages over 293 passing yards per game and will face a Browns’ pass D that ranks 14th in the league.
The home field advantage is just what they need to get back on track with W, which is exactly what they will get this Sunday facing the Browns.
