Week 8: vs Oakland Raiders
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Cleveland actually has the sixth-ranked rushing attack in the NFL so far this year, averaging 133.5 yards per game with eight total rushing scores produced. Last week, they fell short of this standard as Ben Tate (16/36/0 rushing with 1/-2/0 receiving) and Isaiah Crowell (7/18/0 rushing with 1/5/0 receiving) struggled to run the football at Jacksonville. Third-stringer Terrance West didn't fare any better (5/8/0 rushing with 1/0/0 receiving). The entire Browns' offense went into a funk last weekend - we'll see if they can get out of their study in brown this weekend at home vs. Oakland.
Speaking of Oakland, they bring the league's 29th-ranked rush D to this dance, averaging 145.3 yards allowed per game, with six rushing scores given out to date. Last week, Arizona hit them for 37/123/1 rushing; San Diego posted 33/116/1 on this group two games back.
Though Oakland has tightened up a bit in this phase of late they are still vulnerable - look for a bounce-back game from Tate in this one. Advantage, Cleveland.
