The Cleveland Browns are staying out on the West Coast for this week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams after they lost 29-12 to the Denver Broncos last week. The Rams are 3.5-point favorites over the Browns after their 23-point win over the Arizona Cardinals last week.
Cleveland lost a couple of key players to injury last week, including Defensive Player of the Year candidate Myles Garrett to a shoulder injury. The Rams are coming off their best offensive performance of the season last week, which could be a turning point for them.

Browns vs. Rams Key Players to Watch
P.J. Walker: If Thompson-Robinson doesn’t pass through the concussion protocol later this week, the Browns will likely turn to the veteran backup. Walker completed 6-of-13 passes for 56 yards and was sacked four times in last week’s loss to the Broncos. Walker has made two starts this season for the Browns, where he’s thrown a touchdown but four interceptions.
Los Angeles Stafford
Matthew Stafford: After getting beat up in Week 11 by the Seahawks, Stafford bounced back in the Rams’ blowout win over the Cardinals last week. The veteran quarterback completed 75.8% of his passes for 229 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception. It’s only the second time this season that Stafford has thrown two or more touchdowns. It might be tough for Stafford to throw for multiple touchdowns on Sunday against the Browns’ defense, which is tied with the Ravens for the fewest TD passes allowed (10) this season.
Browns vs. Rams Prediction and Pick
The Browns are banged up on both sides of the ball, which is not ideal heading into Sunday’s game against the Rams. However, the good news for Cleveland is that it appears as if Amari Cooper and Myles Garrett will be okay.
If Garrett can play, it will give this Browns’ defense a huge boost, which has been one of the better units in the NFL (4.5 yards per play allowed). But when it comes to Cleveland’s offense, I don’t have a ton of faith in Walker, whose play under center has been average at best.
As for the Rams, their offense looked explosive with second-year running back Kyren Williams returning from injury as he had 204 total yards and two touchdowns against the Cardinals. The Browns don’t give up a lot of yards on the ground (105.9 rushing yards per game allowed), but we’ve seen a couple of teams have success over the last few weeks.
If the Rams' offensive line can keep Stafford upright and he doesn’t implode, I like Los Angeles to cover this short spread at home.
