6Cleveland Browns vs. Houston Texans (-6)
Don’t laugh. The Browns are better than you think.
A highly competitive team all year long, this franchise has surged since Hue Jackson got the ax. And Baker Mayfield has been playing at a higher level than most quarterbacks during the team’s two-game win streak.
In addition to the fact that the Browns have discovered their mojo on offense, it’s their defense that could be a problem for the Texans on Sunday. Myles Garrett and Co. will wreak havoc on Houston’s struggling offensive line in the passing game. And if the front seven can shut down Lamar Miller up front, Houston’s offense will be in serious trouble.
