CLEVELAND, Ohio — It’s not that I don’t believe this Browns team is truly better than what we have seen the last two seasons. I’ve been harping on it every week that I believe they are and each game is a chance to prove it.
It’s just that I’m having trouble picking the Browns this week. A big part of it is that the Chargers have lost two games, one to the undefeated Chiefs and one to the undefeated Rams. Those are clearly the two best teams in the league right now.
The flip side of this is the Chargers’ three wins have come against the Bills, 49ers after Jimmy Garoppolo and the Raiders. It’s not exactly a murderers’ row.
This is a winnable game. That’s the theme so far this season. You go into each week truly believing anything can happen. If the Browns want to turn this season into something real, they’ll have to stack wins. I don’t think it happens this week.
Judging by my record so far, that’s good news for the Browns.
My pick: Chargers 30, Browns 27.
My record: 1-4.
