Rickenbach NFL Rotation #470 Sunday NFL 8* Denver Broncos (+) vs Cleveland Browns @ 4:25 ET - There has been an over-reaction here because of the injury to Broncos QB Joe Flacco. I expect Brandon Allen to surprise people with his level of play here. He also has mobility which is a plus. The key here though is we're now getting a very solid defense plus as many as 4.5 points and they are at home in this one and coming off a loss. Yes Denver's season has been a disappointment thus far but so too has the Browns season. Cleveland has struggled this year and, like the Broncos, has just 2 wins on the year. Also, the brash personality of Browns QB Baker Mayfield has put a target on the back of the Cleveland offense every time they step on the field. Defenses love "getting after it" when they face a QB who has a little too much bravado as they love to "put him in his place". Keep in mind, the Browns came into this season with very high expectations and they have fallen well short thus far. Trying to right the ship at a tough place to play and facing a tough defense...I just don't see it happening. The Browns beat the Broncos here late last season but Denver entered that game having beaten Cleveland 11 straight times and now it is payback time. The Browns struggle to stop the run and the Broncos have a respectable ground game and that will help Allen get acclimated into the offense here as Denver establishes the run. The Broncos defense allowed 30 points recently to the Chiefs but that was a fluke as KC only had 271 yards of offense in that game. Considering that as well as the fact that Denver has allowed an average of only 9.3 points per game in their other 3 recent games, you can see why I am expecting the Browns to struggle against this Broncos defense at Mile High! Give men the points with the home dog here. 8* DENVER
