The Browns are making a dash to get out of the cellar in a tight AFC North. They won their second in a row on Sunday to get as close to third place this late in the season as they’ve been in a long time.
The Texans will try to win their eighth in a row and take a more commanding lead of the division in Week 12 on Monday Night Football against the Titans.
The Browns moved to 2–1 since Hue Jackson was fired and won their first road game since 2015. The 25-game losing streak away from home that they snapped was the second-longest of all-time, just one game less than Detroit’s all-time mark.
Week 12’s road win was extra special, not because it kept Cleveland out of some unfortunate history, but because it came against Hue Jackson, who took an assistant job with the Bengals after he was fired earlier this season.
Apparently, several Browns players felt like Jackson still owed the Browns a degree of allegiance, even after being fired, and shouldn’t have gone to a rival franchise. There were some icy interactions and then comments, post-game.
Nick Chubb got another twenty-eight carries and finished with eighty-four yards and a touchdown. Baker Mayfield threw for four and the Browns were up 28–0 before the first half was over.
Cleveland has won two in a row and two in a row rather convincingly. It sure looks like a team nobody wants to play down the stretch but all momentum will be lost if the Texans and Panthers take care of business. They are Cleveland’s next two opponents.
It’s going to be a short week for Houston, which takes on Tennessee from NRG Stadium on Monday. The Texans will honor their late owner, Bob McNair, who died earlier this week at the age of eighty-one.
Houston was 0–3 before it reeled off seven in a row, a streak it will put to the test tonight. A big reason why is the way the offensive line has protected DeShaun Watson, mixed with the fine play-calling to get the ball out of his hand faster.
Watson has ran just ten times over the last three games and nineteen over the last five. Fantasy owners may not like that, but he’s been over 66 percent completion in each of his last three and threw his first two interceptions in four games last week against the Redskins.
The defense should have a good game tonight against Tennessee, good games like its been having on a weekly basis ever since this streak began. Last week against Washington was the first week the defense gave up three touchdowns in five games.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Cleveland may be dangerous but Houston will win.
I’m assuming the Texans keep the win streak going this Monday against Tennessee. If that momentum is lost, this is more of a question for me. But if Watson and company are rolling, I like Houston to win and cover.
