Browns/Giants Preview

Posted by in NFL General on October 13th, 2008 | Comment »

In all honesty, do not bet on tonight’s game. The Browns are a 9-point underdog at home off a bye week. The Giants are arguably the NFL’s best team. However, the Giants have had a very easy schedule and the Browns are playing tough teams and coming off a win. Some people are saying this is a trap game for the Giants. If they don’t take the Browns seriously, they may be in trouble.

On the other hand, a simple look at the Giants statistics and it looks like they will dominate this game. They lead the league in yards and points per game and are 2nd in points allowed, so statistically, it looks like the Giants should blowout the Browns.

How much will the home-dog, on a Monday night, off a bye week factor in for the Browns? Will they pull off the upset, cover the spread, or get blown out (or blowed out as Emmitt Smith likes to say)? I could see any of the above happening, so I’ll pass.

For the sake of kick and giggles, I’ll say Giants -8 is the play to make, but I’m not taking this game. I will also not be betting on the Giants because I will be pulling for the Browns since I would love nothing more than a Giants loss so the Eagles can gain some more ground in the NFC East.

Unbelievable! As I said, a great game to pass on!  Only 1 ESPN analyst picked the Browns and look at the result.  The NFL season keeps getting crazier.  The Giants have been dominating almost every statistical category and the Browns win.  The QB with the 2nd worst passer rating breaks out against one of the best defenses in the league and dominates the game.

The play that made the most difference: Aaron Ross slips to set up a Braylon Edwards deep ball that leads to a TD.  I believe that play alone led to the Browns winning this game.  The Giants had to respect the deep ball  after that and as Edwards said, after that play, the WRs established the upperhand.   The home-dog/Monday Night/bye week factor also played a bigger role than I anticipated.  The Eagles win, the Phillies go up 3-1 over the Dodgers, I win my fantasy matchup, all 3 NFC East division rivals lose, Tony Romo goes down for a month.  I’ll take this week over most others.  I guess you can’t get ’em all.
