My Analysis:

The Browns are coming off a major win against the Giants and don't look for them to fall into the same trap we did. Their offense had their best game of the season and they are looking to keep stride. Braylon Edwards is a tough receiver to cover, he makes difficult catches and is very good at getting open. But, he reminds of a bigger Santana Moss. He has stone hands at the worst times in games. Jamal Lewis is a bruiser and he's being led by a really strong offensive line. Joe Thomas made the Pro Bowl as a rookie last season and he has kept up the pace all season long.

Defensively, the Browns should have a rough go of stopping Clinton Portis. They are allowing 137 yards on the ground a game, and Portis will be attacking all game long. Campbell needs to find a way to get Santana Moss involved, quick screens etc, just to keep the defense honest. Shaun Rogers is tough up front, as is Alex Hall, our offensive line is going to have to eat their Wheaties pregame for this one :)
