Raiders vs. Browns

The Browns are going back to Josh McCown as their starting quarterback a week after Johnny Manziel helped them beat the Titans.  I think it’s the right move.  Manziel still can’t be trusted.  Hes’ talented but if the Browns turn the keys to the franchise over to him and he relapses back into Johnny Football they’ll be blamed for putting too much on him too soon.

Manziel needs to earn the Browns trust first. As for starting McCown, I think it will cost the Browns as the Raiders are coming off a big win against the Ravens and I think they’ll keep the momentum rolling with a win over the Browns.

Bengals vs. Ravens

At 0-2 the Ravens desperately need a win and at 2-0 the Bengals don’t.  But even though I think the Ravens will do everything in their power to get the home win, I think the Bengals are the better team and I think they’ll get the win on the road.

Winner:  Bengals

Score prediction:       24-20  Bengals   

Points spread:      Ravens -2.5

Over/under:  44.5 – Over
