The Cleveland Browns are back on the bottom of the AFC North after a forgettable Week 10 loss to the New England Patriots. Up next for them is the closest thing to a gimme in the NFL, as they will take on the winless Detroit Lions. But the Lions could be nearing a victory this season, so the Browns will have to be very wary. Check out our preview of this game below.

Betting on the Detroit Lions (odds)
Regular Season Record: 0-8-1
You got to feel for the Lions. Even when they don’t lose they don’t win either. Wait, what? The Lions remain winless after settling for a 16-16 tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 on the road. Despite another winless outing, the Lions got a huge performance from running back D’Andre Swift who rushed for 130 yards on 33 carries, while two obscure players each scored a rushing touchdown in Godwin Igwebuike and Jermar Jefferson. Detroit’s next challenge will be the Browns, did not look good at all in Week 10. If anything, Cleveland even looked way worse than the Lions in Week 10. The Browns allowed 184 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to the New England Patriots last Sunday, and that bad Cleveland defense could offer another big Sunday for Swift and company.
The Lions are 3-0 against the spread in their last three road games.
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (odds)
Regular Season Record: 5-5
A week after looking like a legitimately great team in a 41-16 road loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Browns fell back to earth in an embarrassing 45-7 road loss to the Patriots. The Browns’ defense looked discombobulated in Foxborough. Hopefully for Cleveland, the loss to the Pats will spark its defense to play to its potential again. Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney should be able to wreak havoc in the Lions’ backfield, as Detroit has already allowed 27 sacks on the season. As for their own pass protection, the Browns need tighter security for their quarterbacks, who have been sacked a total of 30 times this season. Baker Mayfield is currently considered questionable for Week 11’s date with Detroit after hurting his knee against the Pats, though it doesn’t seem to be serious. Nevertheless, Case Keenum will be on standby mode in case Mayfield gets ruled out.
The under is 3-1 in the Browns’ last four games at home.
The Browns win, 30-14.
