Two teams on the opposite side of the momentum spectrum meet up Sunday afternoon in Cleveland. The Browns battled Cincinnati to a back and forth 37-34 win at Cincinnati last week, while the Raiders were dumped 45-20 at home vs. the Bucs.
Oddsmakers like Cleveland by -2.5 in this game, not a bad number considering the Browns have gone 3-0 at home. The Raiders have a cross-country trip and for a 1:00 PM ET start, a flat start wouldn’t be surprising.
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas laid an egg last week, but it could have been expected. The Raiders upset the Chiefs 40-32 in week 5 at Kansas City as +11 underdogs, then headed into their bye week. It’s hard to keep momentum going when idle.
The Bucs got the 25-point win last Sunday due mostly in part to a big day from Tom Brady, who had 369 yards with 4 TD and 0 INT. That was nothing new for a Raiders team that ranks 28th in the league against the pass.
One of the biggest problems for the Raiders in last week’s loss was that they couldn’t find a running game. Vegas ran 24 times for just 76 yards, a big difference from 35 carries for 144 yards vs. the Chiefs.
QB Derek Carr actually played well enough to win last week, completing 24 of 36 passes for 284 yards with 2 TD and 1 INT. That being said, Sunday’s game was the first time in six games that Carr’s completion percentage was under 70%.
It was a horrible 0/3 start with an INT last week for Baker Mayfield, but he bounced back with a vengeance going 22 for his next 25 with 5 TD in the 37-34 win over the Bengals.
There’s talks amongst Cleveland fans that last week’s win produced addition by subtraction. Mayfield’s big day came after Odell Beckham was injured in the first quarter and will now miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
The Browns offense thrived in Beckham’s absence, and role players like Harrison Bryant (2 TD) and Donovan Peoples-Jones (game winning 24-yard TD catch with 0:11 seconds left) gave a glimpse at Cleveland’s depth.
The Browns improved passing game, combined with a rushing offense that put up 300+ yards in a win over Dallas in week 4, makes Cleveland a dangerous team here.
The Browns defense did give up a 406 yard passing day to Joe Burrow last week, but it took the rookie 47 attempts to get there. On the bright side, Cleveland sacked Burrow 4 times.
