The Browns have a much more effective offense right now and having most of their playmakers healthy makes them a decent pick for this matchup against a hit or miss Eagles team that has no clue who they are yet.

The Philadelphia Eagles should be ruling their divisional roost right now but they are barely hanging on at 3-5-1, last week getting smoked by the Giants, 17-27, and now Carson Wentz and his boss HC Doug Pederson look for ways to jumpstart their 27th ranked offense.
It’s great news for the Cleveland Browns since they are 6-3 for the first time since a long time and right now they have most of their offensive weapons healthy – they even managed to fight the horrible weather at FirstEnergy Stadium last week and get a critical 10-7 win over the Texans.
These two cross-conference rivals have played each other 49 prior times, with the Cleveland Browns winning 31 of those games and the Philadelphia Eagles winning 17 of the games, plus there was a tie.

The Eagles are ranked 27th overall in offensive production, with QB Carson Wentz and company posting an average of 332 total yards per game, resulting in less than 23 points each time, numbers that, if improved, would go a long way is such a weak division as the NFC East.
Running back Miles Sanders has put up some decent numbers and currently is the 14th most productive at his position having carried the ball 86 times this season for 519 yards and 3 touchdowns on top of catching 14 passes for another 101 yards.
One key player who is back now is TE Dallas Goedert, who was on injured reserve since Week 3 with an injury to his ankle, but now he can use his ability to get open in the middle of the field and catch the ball to help this struggling Eagles offense to get going.
Currently, the Browns defense is ranked 15th in the league, so it could be worse, but it could be way better, especially given the amount of talent the team has on its roster and especially its defensive line.
Look for defensive end Myles Garrett especially – his ability to get to opposing QBs while running at almost a horizontal angle is impressive to watch, and his league-leading 9.5 sacks are just as fun to see.
Where the Browns fall short is in their secondary, particularly at safety where Andrew Sendejo and Karl Joseph have received some heat for poor play at times, but there is enough talent to keep opponents off the field, and that will be the key to a win against the Eagles on Sunday.
Eagles lost to the Giants last week, which seems impossible, but it happened and Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz played poorly, with no touchdowns or interceptions were thrown and just 57 percent of his passes completed, numbers that are not going to help him take his team to the postseason.
The NFC East is laughably bad, so if Wentz can figure out a way to get his offense to click, he can lead his team to a playoff spot as leaders of their division, but right now he is leading the league in both interceptions with 12 and in sacks with 35, so it is no wonder the team is only 3-5-1 with so much talent on board.
Eagles receivers Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward, and Jalen Reagor must begin getting better at running routes and getting open because right now their passing attack averaged just 209 yards per game, also ranked 27th overall.
When Nick Chubb went down to injury for a few weeks, the Cleveland Browns run game suffered, and that says a lot given his replacement, Kareem Hunt, is one of the top rushers in the league right now.
But Chubb is such an asset in how he forces defenses to game plan around him, his ability to run downhill and break tackles for extra yards something that gets even tougher to defend as the game wears on.
Chubb has great numbers – in his five games, he has carried the ball 76 times for 461 tards and 5 touchdowns, but for the Browns to take their show to the playoffs as a Wild Card team, he has to continue to contribute at this level and be a key to every win from here on out.
