Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field, 1:00 PM (Steelers +2.5, O/U: 39.5)
The Browns are riding a three game winning streak and are back in the hunt for the division. Baker Mayfield, who’s play has been questionable all year long has thrown 7 TD’s and just 1 pick during the winning streak and OBJ finally snaps the 8 game TD drought last week. Steelers are banged up at the skills positions (Conner & Smith-Schuster are questionable). Hodges Will start after getting the team going last week after a poor start against a bad Bengals team. Even without Garrett, the Browns defense is solid and especially if Conner is listed as out. Take the Browns to cover in the over, Browns 24-20.
Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants, MetLife Stadium, 1:00 PM (Giants +6.5, O/U: 43.5)
The Packers come into this game losing 2 of the last 3 (both losses on the road) and really looked bad in LA and San Fran after ripping off 7 wins in their first 8 games. The 49ers defense looked alive and held Rodgers to 104 yards despite completing 20 passes. The third down parts of those games were not great for the Packers. Given that the Packers have been fine on the road versus bad teams, they should bounce back in New York. The Giants also had troubles on third down last week (1 for 12) against a struggling Bears team, and still, narrowly lost. Barkley has been having a hard time getting out of the gates in most games this year and the struggles have just continued throughout each week. Daniel Jones had an amazing game against the Jets before the teams bye week but came out flat last week on the road, post bye week. The Positives he can build off of, are that he went consecutive starts without throwing a pick for the first time in his career and in those last 2 games, he has 6 TD’s. Take the Packers to cover in the over, Packers 31-17.
