The Cleveland Browns are coming off a tough Monday night loss that could have a carryover effect, but they haven't lost back-to-back games this season and they're so close to ending their playoff drought that is 18 years long. The New York Giants didn't show up last week against the Cardinals, but their defense has allowed 20 or less points in four of their last five games and they're still in the playoff hunt themselves. The Browns are the better team here and should win, but each of their last five wins have been decided by six or less points. The Browns rarely make things easy on themselves, and the Giants will force Cleveland to make plays through the air to win, as they're one of the better teams at stopping the run.
Give me the points with the home team in this crucial Sunday night game.
