NFL Week 7: Cleveland Browns vs Indianapolis Colts Odds, and Picks (Oct 22)
- The Browns shocked the 49ers with a 17-19 win on Sunday.
- The Colts lost 20-37 to the Jaguars in week 6.
- These teams last met in October 2020 with the Browns winning 23-32.
The 3-2 Cleveland Browns take on the 3-3 Indianapolis Colts in this week 7 matchup. The Browns ended the unbeaten run of the 49ers last time out and will be looking to build on that performance.
How To Watch
The Browns caused one of the upsets of the season as they overcame the 49ers 17-19 in week 6. With Deshaun Watson’s shoulder injury still lingering, P.J. Walker was under center for this one and whilst he was fairly ineffective, he led his team to victory. Running back Kareem Hunt scored his first touchdown since returning to Cleveland and the rest of the points came from the boot of Dustin Hopkins. Watson is expected to miss the week 7 encounter with the Colts so Walker should continue at quarterback.
The Colts are moving in the right direction this season, but the Jaguars were far too good for them on Sunday. Gardner Minshew had an erratic time at quarterback, throwing 33/55 completions for 329 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Zack Moss and Jonathan Taylor continued to split RB duties as the latter continues his recovery from injury. The progress in Indianapolis continues, but we may not see the fruit of the rebuild until next season now.
Cleveland will be on a high after their defeat of San Francisco last week and their defense is one of the best in the league so I expect them to pick up another win here.
