Washington @ Cleveland
Current Records: Washington 1-1; Cleveland 1-1
What to Know
The Cleveland Browns have the luxury of staying at home another week and will welcome the Washington Football Team at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 27 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Cleveland should still be feeling good after a victory, while Washington will be looking to right the ship.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Browns beat the Cincinnati Bengals 35-30 last week. Cleveland success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB Nick Chubb, who rushed for two TDs and 124 yards on 22 carries, and RB Kareem Hunt, who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD. Chubb's performance made up for a slower contest against the Baltimore Ravens two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Washington ended up a good deal behind the Arizona Cardinals when they played last week, losing 30-15. A silver lining for Washington was the play of WR Terry McLaurin, who caught seven passes for one TD and 125 yards.
The Browns are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in all their past two games.
It was a hard-fought game, but Cleveland had to settle for a 31-20 loss against Washington when the teams previously met four seasons ago. Maybe Cleveland will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
