MATCHUP AT A GLANCE
When: Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio
Point Spread: Seattle Seahawks -1
Betting Total: 47.5
The NFL season has already reached week six, and there are some very interesting games on the schedule this weekend. The Cleveland Browns will be hosting the Seattle Seahawks in one of these games, but this feels like a battle of teams going in opposite directions.
Seattle comes into this matchup having won two straight games, and they have been impressive in each of those games. The Seahawks currently sit in second place in the NFC West Division, but are right behind the San Francisco 49ers.
Cleveland comes into this game with a record of 2-3, and they have been hard to figure out. The Browns had an impressive win over Baltimore in week four, but got blown out by San Francisco on Monday night.
Mayfield Must Play Better For Browns
If the Cleveland Browns are going to turn their season around then Baker Mayfield must play better. Mayfield had three turnovers on Monday Night Football, and he has completed just 55 percent of his passes this season.
The Browns have plenty of talent on offense, but they can’t score any points when they are turning it over. Cleveland is dealing with a ton of injuries on defense, and other teams have taken advantage.
The Browns gave up 31 points in week five, and have given up 24.4 points per game.
Wilson Playing at MVP Level
Russell Wilson has been playing great football for the Seattle Seahawks for quite some time, but he has turned it up a notch so far this season. Wilson has thrown 12 touchdown passes in 2019, and has yet to throw his first interception.
The Seahawks are averaging 265 passing yards per game, and have also ran it for over 120 yards per contest. Running back Chris Carson has ran for 380 yards, but does have a pair of fumbles already this season.
The Seahawks defense has struggled at times this season as well, and they have given up 23.6 points per game. Seattle likes to bring a ton of pressure on defense, but they are averaging just two sacks per game. You can expect the Seahawks to play solid defense in this game, but Russell Wilson is the real key.
