What we think will happen vs. the Rams (Week 10)

St. Louis Rams at Cleveland Browns

November 13, 2011


Rams 8
Browns 3
Fortunately, I was out of the country for the past week, where the sports news was all Penn State, all the time. I almost forgot how anemic the play calling of Ohio State and the Browns are. Unfortunately the Buckeyes reminded me yesterday, and I'm forced to pick a Chris Bermanesque ridiculous score for this game. Who knew that Browns season ticket holders were paying for the equivalent of 5 (or maybe 12) preseason games featuring teams that belong on a practice squad?

Oh, and thanks DeSean Jackson, as I'll be starting Greg Little on my fantasy team today. Whoo-hoo!!

Browns 6
The Browns will find it difficult to do anything right today. The offensive scoring rides on the leg of Phil Dawson. The defense doesn't do much better containing Steven Jackson. Probably should avoid the game all together, but much like an accident it's hard to not want to watch.

The Browns are plagued by ineptness and injuries, while the Rams at least have a running game. This team as of late has given us no reason to think they can overcome even the slightest adversity, so why should today be any different?

Browns 9
Rams 7
To quote Doctor Emmett Brown in Back to the Future, when asked why he went against his own better judgment, read Marty's letter about the future, and risked screwing up the space time continuum, "Well, I figured, what the hell?"

Sometimes, there just are no real good explanations. If the Browns don't win today, they may never win again.

Hopefully Coach Shurmur leaves town with the Rams.

Rams 17
Browns 10
The Browns offense is pathetic and unimaginative. The defense can keep us in it for a little bit but knowing we have no offense leaves no hope that the Browns can win this game. (Editor's note: I just left this comment in from last week.)

Rams 21
Browns 20
(Editor's note: I don't think any number of Phil Dawson field goals add up to 20.)
