- An exciting matchup awaits us in Georgia, where the Falcons host the Browns.
- Both teams are coming off wins posted in the previous week.
- The Browns were better than the Steelers, while Falcons beat the Seahawks.
The Browns weren’t expected to be this in form without Watson in their starting lineup. On the other side, just a few envisioned the Falcons playing such interesting football this early into the season.
This is why we deliberately stated mentioned “interesting” in the opening few sentences. The clash between the Browns and the Falcons should be exciting for the fans, because both units come into it in high spirits, aiming for a victory.

Browns vs Falcons Vegas Odds
Nick Chubb Displaying MVP Football
The Browns’ runningback is, for the moment, the best in the league in that position. He has been the key reason why the Browns managed to win two events (and also to lose the one against the Jets) and by far the most influential player on this team. Four touchdowns and 341 yards on the ground speak for themselves.
Jacoby Brissett is solid for the moment, and with four touchdowns and just one pick, we can say that he replaces Watson pretty solid. We are all aware that he isn’t an elite QB, but there aren’t too many remarks on Brissett’s game currently.
Myles Garrett continues to dominate the defense, and he already has three sacks so far, with one forced fumble. We expect him to be even better as the season goes by.
Falcons Lack Routine and Finesse
After losing to the Saints by a point while wasting an enormous advantage, the Falcons were defeated in LA against the Rams. Though, following a disastrous start, we’ve seen them rolling over the champs late in the game, indicating a solid potential. At last, Arthur Smith’s unit won this Sunday, on the road, against the Seahawks, 27-23.
The fantastic Cordarrelle Patterson carried his team, rushing for 141 yards and one TD. This was his second game in the current campaign with 120+ yards on the ground.
Marcus Mariota ran well too, having one TD delivered to the end zone as well, his second of the year. If he would only throw as good as he scrambles, the Falcons would be among the best teams in the NFC.
Browns vs Falcons Head to Head
The franchise from Cleveland is dominating in this matchup, having 12 wins and only three losses. The last time they met with the Falcons was in 2018, triumphing at home, 28-16.
NFL Prediction: Browns vs Falcons Picks
Neither side has been in particularly good defensive form since the campaign began, and the total line, which is currently set at 46.5 points, looks tempting for Over, which is our pick in this case.
