The QB situation just keeps getting better and better for the 2-win Browns, who are back to Johnny Manziel being the starter even though he was demoted to the 3rd string for lying to the team for off-the-field issues.
Cleveland has lost 7 straight games, but they are still the home favorite facing the 49ers.
San Francisco snapped their 2-game losing streak with a thrilling OT road win over the Chicago Bears in their last game.
In their last games the 49ers beat the Chicago Bears 26-20 in OT and the Browns lost to the Cincinnati Bengals 37-3.
On the season the Browns are 1-5 at home and the 49ers are 1-5 on the road.
San Francisco 49ers
Hard to believe, but the Jags are still in the playoff race since the Colts and Texans are tied for the South Division lead at 6-5.
Blaine Gabbert had a solid game in the win over the Bears, where is long TD in OT sealed the win and he was also the team’s leading rusher. RB Shaun Draughn and WR Torrey Smith are his 2 main weapoins and Gabbert probably had the best game of his career facing the Bears.
Cleveland’s defense has been a mess this season and they have given up at least 30 points in 5 straight games.
Overall, the Browns rank 25th in the league defending the pass and 31st defending the run. They will get a heavy dose of the pass and the run in this game facing a San Francisco team that is coming off their first road win of the season.
The Browns are giving up an average of 28.9 ppg, which is the 2nd worst mark in the NFL.
The Browns will have another look at Manziel and the next few games are crucial for him. If the season ended today Cleveland would have the #1 pick in the draft and there is a good bet they would grab a QB.
Even though Manziel has gotten a lot of the press this season for Cleveland the defense has been terrible and the rushing offense ranks dead last in the league.
Cleveland ranks 12th in the league in passing yards per game and in his last game before being demoted Manziel passed for a whopping 372 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Browns do have a couple of good young targets in Travis Benjamin and Gary Barnidge, who each has over 800 receiving yards on the season.
Benjamin left the Cincinnati game and he is a question mark for this one.
The Browns run game has been terrible this season and after 12 games their leading rusher is Isaiah Crowell and he only has 397 rushing yards.
The 49ers played a pretty good game on D in their win over the Bears and overall they rank 27th in pass defense and 28th in run defense.

The Browns have failed to cover the spread in their last 6 games and I think that trend will continue this Sunday.
NFL Free Score Prediction: 49ers 31 – Browns 17
I think Manziel will have a solid game, but will get no help and the 49ers will win their 2nd in a row sending the Browns to their 8th straight loss.
