Cleveland needs to win their remaining three games and get a lot of help from the likes of Pittsburgh and Tennessee or Houston in order to have a shot at the playoffs. That glimmer of hope should motivate the Browns against a Cardinals team that has been mostly competitive despite a six-game losing streak (including their last three at home). The Browns have won four out of five, but all four of those wins came at home. Since logging a surprising win at Baltimore in Week 4, they have lost four-straight games on the road. After struggling offensively to start the season, Cleveland’s offense has inched up over the past month. They are now averaging 21.0 points per game, and Nick Chubb has emerged as the NFL’s leading rusher. The Cardinals’ offensive numbers are close to Cleveland’s, but their defense has been their weak point – the Cards’ 415 yards allowed per game is the worst number in the NFL, and their 28.8 points allowed is third-worst in the league. While the Browns have been better over the past couple of years, they still struggle playing out west. In their last 21 games played in the Pacific or Mountain time zone, Cleveland is 2-19 straight up. Arizona hasn’t been lighting it up at home either, however, as the Cards are 2-12-1 straight up at home over the past two seasons, going 6-9 against the spread over that span.
