Browns vs. Patriots Breakdown

Jacoby Brissett's revenge game is upon us as he and the Cleveland Browns host Bailey Zappe and the New England Patriots. As many may (or may not) know, Brissett was a third-round pick by you guessed it, the Patriots back in 2016. The North Carolina State product would make a pair of starts for the Pats during the 2016 season when Tom Brady was infamously suspended for "Deflategate". Brissett was then shipped off to the Indianapolis Colts, where he started nearly every game for Indy during the 2017 and 2019 seasons, where he'd compile an 11-19 record. Brissett had a brief stop as the Dolphins' backup QB, last year, before signing with the Browns, this past off-season as Deshaun Watson's suspension loomed.

It's no secret that the Browns have been a run-first team, and for good reason with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt manning the backfield. With that being said, the Browns would be smart to continue that trend as New England comes into this weekend's showdown with the 23rd ranked rush defense, compared to a top-10 unit against the pass.

Meanwhile, Bill Belichick's squad has had their patented next man up mentality. Rookie fourth-round selection, Bailey Zappe had his first career start, last week against the Detroit Lions and would notch his first career win with a 29-0 drubbing of the Lions. While franchise QB, Mac Jones is expected to miss his third straight game with a high ankle sprain, Zappe will be under center for a second consecutive week.

However, RB Damien Harris suffered a hamstring injury during last week's victory over the Lions and Rhamondre Stevenson will be turned to in a work-horse capacity during Harris' expected somewhat lengthy absence. Stevenson and the defense will be key for the Pats if they want to stay afloat in a muddy AFC playoff picture as Mac Jones continues to be sidelined.

Cleveland Browns vs. New England Patriots Prediction

This one is up in the air. The Browns are going in the wrong direction, while the Patriots are one of the most injury riddled teams in the entire NFL and will be without their starting Quarterback and Running Back while having injuries to their top two cornerbacks. However, injuries didn't stop the Patriots from shutting out the number one-ranked offense in the league, last week, when they stomped the Lions 29-0. While Mac Jones is still sidelined with a high ankle sprain and RB, Damien Harris picked up a hammy issue in last week's aforementioned win over Detroit, the Patriots offense isn't exactly prolific. Expect these two defenses led by Myles Garrett to show out in a low scoring affair. Stay away from the razor thin spread and hit the under.
