Browns are on a 3 game winning streak and heading home to face the Colts...who just so happen to ALSO be on a 3 game winning streak. Outside of that, these two teams couldn't BE more polar opposite.
Browns are the 4th highest scoring team at 31.0 pts/g; and 27th in giving up points at 31.5 pts/g
Colts are 15th at 25.8 pts/g; and 1st in giving up points at 14.0 pts/g
Browns are #1 in rushing the ball at 204.5 y/g; 5th in defending the run at 91.8 y/g
Colts are 15th at 115.3 y/g; 4th in defending the run at 77.0 y/g
Colts are 18th in passing yards at 245 y/g; 1st in defending the pass at 159.3 7/g
Browns are 30th at 182.5 y/g; 30th at 310.5 y/g
On the surface, this is a tough game for the Browns...so time to dive
Colts have played the Jags/Vikings/Jets/Bears...not a good offense among them...3 of them at 21st or lower in scoring, in passing yds, and 3 of them at 20th or lower in rushing yards. So that vaunted D isn't necessarily as big and bad as advertised.
Conversely, the Browns offense has played 2 teams in the upper half of the league (Cinci 16/Balt 4). Passing (Cinci 16/Wash 4); and while the rushing D's are lower, that is almost EXCLUSIVELY to the hurt the Browns put on them.
On the road, the Colts are 1-1, losing to Jax and playing an inept Foles in Chicago
At home, the Browns are 2-0 (Cinci and Wash)
Opponents Records: Colts 5-11; Browns 6-9-1
Watch for the Browns running game against the Colts DL, and the Colts passing game against the Browns secondary.
