NFL Betting Preview
Cleveland Browns (3-6) at Buffalo Bills (5-4)
Monday, 8:35 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Bills – 4 , Total 43
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. “We have to get our swagger back,” running back Fred Jackson said. “Going into these last couple of weeks, we haven’t had that normal swagger that we usually have. … That’s something we want to address, because we know we’re better than we’re playing.” Buffalo will definitely look for better play out of quarterback Trent Edwards who has thrown five interceptions during the losing streak. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Browns on the Road.
The Cleveland Browns are in danger of falling out of the playoff race at 3-6 and after blowing leads in their last two games, some players on the team have even questioned the team’s commitment. “This is as frustrated as I’ve been in as many years as I’ve been playing,” said running back Jamal Lewis, “I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. I’m just not cut from this kind of cloth. I play physical football. I come out here and give it my all – all week. This is the NFL. You can’t call it quits until the game is over. But it looks to me like some people call it quits before that.” The main problem for Cleveland has been a defense that is full of holes. They have allowed an average of 496.5 yards in their last two games. If that continues the Browns will probably be looking for a new coach as Romeo Crennel is feeling the heat.
