The Cleveland Browns could use a win after losing four of their last five games. Josh McCown is completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 1,686 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions. McCown is questionable with a shoulder injury. Travis Benjamin and Gary Barnidge have combined for 1,089 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Duke Johnson Jr. has 31 receptions. The Cleveland Browns ground game is averaging 90.4 yards per contest, and Isaiah Crowell leads the way with 281 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Cleveland is allowing 26 points and 393.1 yards per game. Karlos Dansby leads the Browns with 54 tackles, Armonty Bryant has 3.5 sacks and Pierre Desir has five pass deflections. Jordan Poyer, Andrew Hawkins and Charles Gaines are questionable.
The Cardinals are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games following a ATS loss and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games. The Browns are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in November.
The Browns don't have the horses to run with the Cardinals, a team that also plays defense and creates turnovers. I see Arizona rolling in this game and winning by double digits.
