NY Giants Game Sunday: NY Giants vs. Browns odds, predictions, injury report, schedule, live stream and TV channel
The NY Giants aim to bounce back from a loss to the Jets in Week 1 of the preseason, when they take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 of the NFL preseason
The NY Giants, led by quarterback Daniel Jones, wide receiver Darius Slayton, and cornerback James Bradberry travel to take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 of the NFL preseason on Sunday, August 21 (8/21/2021) in a 1 p.m. kickoff at First Energy Stadium.
Sunday, the Giants aim to bounce back from disappointing showing by the offensive reserves, who produced just 98 yards through three-plus quarters in a 12-7 loss to the Jets in the exhibition opener last Saturday night at MetLife Stadium.
This week, the NY Giants and Browns took part in a series of joint practices ahead of Sunday’s clash, so there should be plenty of familiarity when the two teams kickoff on Sunday afternoon.

NY Giants vs. Browns prediction for preseason Week 2 vs. Browns
The Cleveland Browns have a Super Bowl caliber roster, and might be the biggest threat to the Kansas City Chiefs appearing in three straight Super Bowls next February.
Following this week’s joint practices, and the ability to scout Cleveland’s personnel up close and personal, don’t be surprised if some of the players released by the Browns during roster cuts find their way onto the NY Giants’ roster.
Meanwhile, the NY Giants’ offense was very disappointing against the Jets, and it remains to be seen how many players the organization cuts wind up on other rosters this fall.
Following last week’s showing, and given the talent-divide between these two teams, the Browns seem to be the smart play.
