Buffalo @ Cleveland
The Browns’ defense is ranked 4th and the Buffalo Bills’ defense is ranked 28th. Cleveland has won two in a row and they’re playing at home. The Bills have two very good running backs but one, Fred Jackson, is listed as probable and the other, CJ Spiller, is listed as questionable. I have to pick the Cleveland Browns to win at home.
