Cleveland Browns at New York Giants

  • Game Time: Sunday, 7:20 pm CT (NBC)
  • Who Needs to Win: Browns

While the NFC East might be a struggling division, they still have some teams that are within reach of a playoff spot mathematically. One of these teams is the Giants, who currently have a 5-8 record on the season.

The battle for the NFC East will be fun to watch, but the hope is that the division doesn’t end up somehow sneaking their way into one of the wild-card spots. A loss to the Browns in Week 15 should be able to ensure that doesn’t happen.

Fans got to see the Browns have one of the most exciting and wild games of the season on Monday night when Cleveland lost a heartbreaker of a contest against the Baltimore Ravens. Despite the loss, Baker Mayfield and crew looked excellent during the game.

Meanwhile, it’s hard to know what to expect from this Giants team. Is this the team that absolutely shut down the Seattle Seahawks two weeks ago or is it the one that got absolutely blown out by the Cardinals last week? Hopefully, the woeful Giants show up on Sunday.
