In recent history, the Cleveland Browns have struggled against the New England Patriots, going just 2-8 over the last 10 games in this series.
But now, as both squads look to keep pace in the AFC wild-card chase, Sunday’s matchup becomes pivotal.
The Browns (5-4), after they announced that they would be moving on from receiver Odell Beckham Jr., thumped the Cincinnati Bengals, 41-16, Sunday in a key AFC North battle. Cleveland is currently the No. 9 seed in the AFC, two spots back of the team they will be facing Sunday.
The Patriots (5-4) are steadily improving and fresh off of a 24-6 victory against the Carolina Panthers in which they forced quarterback Sam Darnold into three interceptions. One of those was returned 88 yards for a touchdown, by cornerback J.C. Jackson. New England has found success with its rushing offense, running for at least 142 yards in each of the last three games, all New England victories.
