Week 7: at Jacksonville Jaguars
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Cleveland has a two-game winning streak going, they are above .500 at 3-2, and they defeated divisional rival Pittsburgh convincingly last week 31-10. Ben Tate has been excellent since returning to the lineup for the Browns, with 25/78/2 rushing vs. Pittsburgh and 22/124/0 rushing with 1/-2/0 receiving at Tennessee. Isaiah Crowell has ascended to the #2 running back position with 11/77/1 rushing vs. Pittsburgh and 6/19/0 rushing at Tennessee two weeks ago. Terrance West was inactive for the Pittsburgh game as a healthy scratch (he's not been pleasing the coaching staff in practices according to comments from head coach Mike Pettine). It looks like the Browns have settled on a 1-2 combination of backs heading into the second 1/3 of the season.
The Jaguars' rush D is currently ranked 19th in the NFL averaging 117.2 yards allowed per game, with five rushing scores handed out to date. They have allowed 24/70/1 to the Titans and 28/111/0 to the Steelers over their last two games - this unit has tightened up during October.
The Browns' backs are on a roll, while the Jaguars have improved somewhat but remain suspect - even though the Browns are on the road, this looks like a good matchup for Tate and Crowell.
