The Cleveland Browns will look to rebound from a 26-6 loss to the New York Jets in their last sim game. Nick Chubb leads Cleveland on offense with a 92 overall rating, with 92 speed, 91 acceleration and 85 strength grades. Odell Beckham Jr. is the top receiver for Cleveland, rated at 90 overall with a 99 rated spectacular catch as well as 91 in catching in traffic and a 98 mark in ball carrier vision while also having 94 ratings in speed and acceleration and 98 agility. Kareem Hunt is rated 88 overall at running back, with 90 speed and 92 acceleration and 92 agility along with a 98 carrying rating while Baker Mayfield is rated at 76 overall starting at quarterback, including 93 throwing power, 87 short pass accuracy and 85 long ball accuracy. On the defensive end for the Browns, Myles Garrett is the leader with a team-high 93 overall rating at defensive end, with 85 speed, 90 acceleration and 96 strength as well as a 95 power move rating.

I’ve gone back and forth on this game, as the Patriots are good enough to win these games and won the sim classic, but they haven’t been blowing teams away and haven’t been really covering either. On the other hand, the Browns are fully capable of hanging around but are also capable of putting up a dud and getting blown out like nobody’s business. Instead of trying to pick a side here, I’m going to side with the over. I think both teams could be good for at least 28 points or so, and I think this one finishes with at least one team in the 30s so give me the over in this spot.
