Cleveland @ Washington
Current Records: Cleveland 6-9; Washington 7-7-1
The Washington Commanders will take on the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at FedEx Field. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
It was all tied up 7-7 at halftime, but the Commanders were not quite the San Francisco 49ers’ equal in the second half when they met last week. Washington took a 37-20 bruising from San Francisco. One thing working slightly against Washington was the run-of-the-mill game of their most targeted running back, RB Brian Robinson Jr., who rushed for 58 yards on 22 carries.
Meanwhile, it looks like Cleveland must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the team didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive last week. They came up short against the New Orleans Saints, falling 17-10. Cleveland’s only offensive touchdown came on a rush from QB Deshaun Watson.
The Browns are now 6-9 while the Commanders sit at 7-7-1. Cleveland has been eliminated from playoff contention. Washington is still in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs, so these next two games are critical for them.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Washington going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.
Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Washington is stumbling into the game with the fourth fewest rushing touchdowns in the league, having accrued only seven on the season. Cleveland’s offense has more to brag about, as they they rank third in the NFL when it comes to rushing touchdowns, with 19 on the season.
The Commanders are a slight 2.5-point favorite against the Browns, according to the latest NFL odds.
