The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to continue their playoff push as they host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football. The Eagles proved last week in their win against the Giants that they are still playoff contenders. “Anything can happen in the NFL, so you just have to make sure that you take care of your business and you can’t worry about really anything else,” head coach Andy Reid said.
The Buffalo Bills were the talk of the NFL early in the season as they led the AFC East but after three straight losses, very few people are talking about them anymore. The Bills will try and right the ship on Monday night as they host the Cleveland Browns. The Bills had only 168 yards of total offense in last week’s 20-10 loss to New England.
The time has come in Cleveland for quarterback Brady Quinn. After playing behind Derek Anderson last season and for the first eight games this season, Quinn will get the start on Thursday as the Browns host the Denver Broncos. Anderson was a Pro-Bowler last season but has looked lost most of the time this year. He was 17 of 33 on Sunday for 219 yards against the Ravens but threw an interception to Terrell Suggs that was run in for a touchdown that clinched the game for Baltimore.
The New York Giants are looking every bit like Super Bowl champs so far this season. They are one of only two unbeaten teams in the NFL and seem to be getting better each week. They shellacked the Seattle Seahawks last week 44-6 and this week they get wide receiver Plaxico Burress back from a one game suspension. Quarterback Eli Manning is playing as well as anyone in the league and everything is clicking for the Giants.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will try for their 10th straight win over the Cleveland Browns as the two teams meet on Sunday night. The all-time series between the two teams is tied at 55 wins each but Pittsburgh has owned the Browns of late. They have won 15 of the last 18 meetings, including the last nine. Cleveland will be looking to bounce back from a poor effort last week against Dallas. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin does not believe Sunday’s game will be easy for his Steelers.
The nationally televised late game Sunday on FOX has the Cleveland Browns hosting the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are one of the Super Bowl favorites this year while the Browns are the trendy pick by some to be a contender in the AFC. The Cowboys are coming off another playoff failure, as last season they went 13-3 in the regular season but lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants in the divisional playoffs.
The New York Giants play a home game for the first time since last December as they host the Cleveland Browns in preseason action on Monday night. The Giants won all of their playoff games last season on the road and played at Detroit last week in their preseason opener. The Giants looked rusty last week against the Lions, losing 13-10.
