NFL – Patriots take on Browns – Preview

November 3, 2010

This Sunday, the New England Patriots will head to Cleveland to take on the Browns. The Patriots will be the 4.5-point favorites in football betting odds, in this matchup, despite being on the road. At 44 sits the total for the game.

The Patriots seem to pull out every year at some point and they have shown resilience. If the team would be able to survive with all of the talk of Randy Moss, many people wondered. It seems that the Patriots will be able to keep on rolling no matter who they have on the field, in the end. The Patriots seem to get better with each week and they have lost just one game on the season.

The Patriots have had a lot of success against the Browns recently and they are on a 5 game winning streak. The Patriots have managed to win 5 games, over the last 6 contests between the two teams. The running game will be the key for the Patriots. They were able to move the ball more easily because of it and last week they managed to find room to run against the Vikings.

The Browns are coming home where they generally play well, although they have just 2 wins on the young season. The Browns have managed to put together a good home record recently, despite winning just 7 of their last 25 total games. Coming into this week, they have won 4 of their last 6 home games.

To put the ball in the end zone, the Browns need to find a way. While they score 13 fewer points per game, they only average about 40 fewer yards per game than the Patriots on offense. The Browns will have a shot at winning games more consistently, if they can find a way to put the ball in the end zone.
