Cleveland Browns Predictions
12/9/2018, 1:00pm ET
Christian M. over 76 rush yards. Hes on fire right now and has gone over 100 yards the last two games. Browns are 28th against the run and have allowed on average 140 yard per game.

The Browns have also been pretty tough at home this season and Carolina has been terrible away from home. I think this game is a crap shoot and two evenly matched teams, but I give the Browns the slight edge because of home field advantage and the Browns are the overall healthier team.
My Pick: Cleveland +1

Fansided: Thomas Davis speaks his mind following Panthers loss to Browns
The last couple of weeks have not been easy for the Carolina Panthers and their fans. With the losses piling up, this stretch of games seems to have taken a toll on everybody involved. Speaking from a personal perspective, it has not been easy. It seems even in the closest games, the Panthers just cannot catch a break.
After Sunday's tough 26-20 loss to the Cleveland Browns, veteran linebacker Thomas Davis sounded off on social media. I'll start by saying this does not sound like a rant. Rather, it sounds like he just needed to get out some frustration.
ESPN.com: Baker Mayfield channels Bernie Kosar as Browns beat Panthers
CLEVELAND - The year of the rookies continued for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at First Energy Stadium.
Baker Mayfield threw for 238 yards and a touchdown in the Browns 26-20 win over the Carolina Panthers.
That gave Mayfield a touchdown pass in 10 consecutive starts, making him the first Browns quarterback to do that since Bernie Kosar in 1987, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
Nick Chubb also scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 4-yard run. That gave Chubb a touchdown in five consecutive games, the longest streak by a Browns player since Greg Pruitt in 1975, again per ESPN Stats.

The Panthers will travel to the beautiful city of Cleveland to face the Browns on Sunday after falling 24-17 to the Buccaneers last week. The Panthers have lost their last four games and will hope to turn their fortunes around against the Browns this weekend. The Panthers won 17-13 the last time these two teams met, so hopefully they can have the same result this Sunday to end their losing streak and keep their dwindling playoff hopes alive.

Fansided: Cleveland Browns vs. Panthers: Week 14 Game time, channel, live stream info
Week 14 brings us a game between the Cleveland Browns (4-7-1) and the Carolina Panthers (6-6). The Browns come home after going 1-1 on a two-game road trip and look to get their second win at home in a row.
Those road games included an impressive win against a divisional rival in the Cincinnati Bengals. That was followed by an ugly loss to the Houston Texans, but they now move forward to face the Panthers, a team struggling with four losses in a row.
As already mentioned, this is a return to their own stadium after a couple weeks away.
Fansided: Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns: Gameday information
A Carolina Panthers four game losing streak led coach Ron Rivera to relieve two coaches from their positions and take over the defensive play calling. An attempt to right the ship, he may also be coaching to secure his own future down the stretch.
The Panthers have allowed an average of 30-plus points to their opponents over the past four weeks and will be tested again on Sunday. Three of the Cleveland Browns four wins have come at home and with Carolina struggling away from Bank of America Stadium, another close game is expected with the outcome impacting both teams in the hunt for a playoff berth.
Fansided: Carolina Panthers run game, other keys for must win at Cleveland Browns
Four consecutive losses by the Carolina Panthers led to more uncertainty around the franchise this week. Quarterback Cam Newton's health, the future of coach Ron Rivera and what players we are watching (or have watched) play their final snaps in a Panthers uniform are all up in the air.
Despite the slide, Carolina remains in the playoff picture as they currently reside one game out of the wild card but have a difficult schedule ahead to finish the season. Two games remain against divisional leader New Orleans, but a loss this week would seemingly make those games irrelevant.
Betting Prediction for Carolina Panthers vs Cleveland Browns on December 09, 2018, 1:00 PM ET
Free Betting Prediction: Cleveland will WIN , Cover the Spread , and the Total will go Over .
The 6-6 Carolina Panthers wrap up their two-game road swing by heading to FirstEnergy Stadium to collide with the 4-7-1 Cleveland Browns. This is the first trip to Cleveland for Carolina since 2010 (a game the Browns won 24-23) and the Panthers are just 1-5 SU and ATS in their six road contests this season, but they are 1.5-point favorites with the total opening at 47 points.

Fansided: Cleveland Browns vs. Panthers: Week 14 predictions
After wins against the Atlanta Falcons at home and Cincinnati Bengals on the road, the Cleveland Browns headed into Week 13 with a ton of confidence as they prepared to play the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
The game went about as poorly as the Browns could have ever expected. Baker Mayfield and his receivers simply weren't on the same page. Nothing they tried worked and the rookie had his worst half of football as a pro -- which included three ugly interceptions.
Mayfield did atone for his poor half by playing incredibly well in the second half.
Cat Scratch Reader: Panthers slight road favorites vs Browns
Why in the world are the Panthers favored yet again? A 6-6 team that has lost four in a row, is 1-5 on the road, playing a 4-7-1 team that has a winning record at home. Go figure. I'm done betting on Panthers ATS outcomes for this season though. If I was going to bet on this game though I like the Browns +1. Instead I will go with the over/under bet of 47 1/2.
I expect there to be a good amount of scoring in this one as the Panthers offense will suddenly stop making the mistakes that has doomed drives.
Rock Hill Herald: Panthers sign a kicker with Graham Gano ruled out for Sunday vs. Browns
The Carolina Panthers signed a kicker on Friday, and declared veteran placekicker Graham Gano out for Sunday's game at Cleveland with a left knee injury.
Former Clemson kicker and South Carolina native Chandler Catanzaro was signed to the active roster, and the team placed guard Amini Silatolu (knee) on injured reserve as the corresponding move.
Catanzaro was among a handful of kickers who worked out for the Panthers after Gano missed a second field goal in as many weeks.
But he and his wife, who were most recently in Tampa Bay, got the call on Thursday as they were preparing to move closer to Catanzaro's Greenville, S.
Cat Scratch Reader: Panthers at Browns Friday injury report: Graham Gano misses practice, ruled out for Sunday
The Panthers were back on the field today in preparation for Sunday's game against the Browns. Graham Gano was absent from practice again as he's battling a knee injury and has been ruled out for Sunday's game. The Panthers signed Chandler Cantanzaro as an insurance policy to cover for Gano's absence.
Graham Gano was not at practice. Chandler Catanzaro took all the kicks. Looking like more than insurance.-- Joe Person (@josephperson) December 7, 2018
RR says Gano has been dealing with a sore knee.
Rock Hill Herald: Mood around Panthers, heading for Cleveland: 'It ain't time for play-play'
Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn has long had a special relationship with Ron Rivera, one that allows Munnerlyn to give and receive teasing from the head coach in a way most other players wouldn't.
So Munnerlyn was asked this week if -- given Rivera firing two defensive assistants and taking over the defensive play-calling after Carolina's fourth straight loss -- he had tried to lighten the mood with a joke or two.
"Oh, no!" Munnerlyn said. "It ain't time for play-play."
It ain't time for play-play.Breaking News

Cat Scratch Reader: Keep Sounding: The Panthers fired coaches and need to beat the Browns
This has been an eventful week. The Panthers lost to the Buccaneers, and their defense has been pretty much the worst group of football players in the NFL. As a result, a couple assistants to the assistants lost their jobs. Now Ron Rivera is more involved and stuff. We talk about all the coaching staff drama and why we don't like it.
On the football side of things we talk about how the Panthers lost to the Buccaneers and what it means going into this weekend's tilt against the Browns. There will be wind.
Cat Scratch Reader: Panthers at Browns: Step UP or Step OUT
Welcome back to the 2018 edition of Step UP or Step OUT, a series on CSR that is intended to look at players who are playing well and highlight a few that need to step their game up. Think of it as a heat index for the Carolina Panthers; guys who are playing well are stepping up and those who aren't need to improve their game or. . . step out.
This week we'll look at a bunch of guys that with more help would have flipped a loss to a win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cat Scratch Reader: Panthers at Browns offensive preview: Protection for Newton crucial against the Browns
Carolina Panther's 24-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday was ugly. Despite 444 yards of offense, nothing seemed to click for the Panthers in their fourth straight loss. Cam Newton was picked off a whopping four times. The offensive line did little to stop the Buccaneers defense from being in Newton's face and the lack of protection resulted in four sacks. Third-down conversions were another area of struggle for the Panthers, who didn't convert their first third down until the third quarter.
On Sunday, the Cleveland Browns had their own struggles.
