With full begging of forgiveness for being so crass and gross to bring COVID issues into the football investment analysis world …

The line is dropping, and fast.

This was at Cleveland -9.5, and then it was announced that a slew of the Brown receivers were going to miss the game due to COVID related issues.

There’s a whole lot not to like on the Browns side, from a delayed flight, to the lack of a normal routine, to not having Jarvis Landry and the receiving corps.

However, that means this is cheap at -7 – again, and likely lower when you read this – for a game the Browns should win handily.

The Jets were able to beat the Rams, but the offense didn’t work. This was the fourth time in five games the team wasn’t able to get to 300 yards of total offense, and now it’s up to the Brown defense to keep it that way.

New York has lost by seven or more in every game but three, and Cleveland is certainly familiar with the surroundings after playing the Giants last week in a 20-6 win.

Expect the Browns to keep this ultra-simple. Rely on the great backs to carry the O, expect the D to turn the Jets back into the struggling mess on offense it has been far too many times – scoring ten or fewer seven times in the last 12 games and is last in the NFL in first downs and scoring.

Welcome to the Cleveland pass rush … and the playoff push.
