New York at Cleveland NFL Expert Predictions

Written by on October 27, 2016

Over the past few years, we have come to expect that a few teams in the NFL will routinely struggle, no matter how often they re-tool or do well in the draft. The Cleveland Browns have long been considered a bit of a punchline in the NFL, and the New York Jets are slowly starting to slip into similar territory. Both teams are struggling again this year, although for very different reasons. The Jets have a bit of a QB issue, with no-one is stepping up to the plate, and they also have a defense that is seriously underperforming. The Browns must be considered a little unlucky, as their QB’s have been dropping like flies all season long. They have already had 6 different guys under center through the first 7 weeks, and it’s no real surprise that they have not been able to record a win. They will feel they have a shot to get that elusive victory this weekend versus the struggling Jets, but are coming into this game as a 3-point online betting underdog.

Why bet on the New York Jets

The Jets spent a ridiculous portion of the offseason trying to negotiate a contact with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. They eventually got it done, but haven’t yet seen a return on their investment. Fitzpatrick was benched in favor of Geno Smith, but was forced to come back in and lead the Jets to victory over the Raven after Smith suffered a knee injury. Fitzpatrick has made it clear that he is not pleased with how he has been treated by the team, and you wonder if we will see a little bit of history repeating this weekend. During his time in Houston, Fitzpatrick was benched, and came back from exile to throw 6 TD passes in his first game back. The New York Jets are 1-3 on the road this season, but this is a chance for win number 2.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns

The Browns have been waiting all season long for some good news, and they may finally have gotten some. Word is that QB Josh McCown is going to be ready to go this weekend, but the big question is whether he will be able to finish the game. The Browns have had zero luck with QB’s this season, and are now getting used to seeing their starters get carted off. It’s been an unfortunate turn of events, as there are some legitimately good players on this Browns team. They have been competitive at times this year, but it’s hard to maintain any kind of consistency when you have a different QB under center this week. If McCown does return, he can take advantage of a very weak Jets secondary.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I think that at this point we are all pulling for the Browns just a little bit, but I fear that they are on the brink of falling to 0-8. I have a feeling that Fitzpatrick has a point to make this week, and he will do it against the poor Browns.
