Browns vs. Bills: Who Do the Experts Got?

Vegas has the Browns as 5.5 point underdogs. The weather in Buffalo is supposed to be cold, windy and sloppy. The Browns have been a "Pass to set up the Run" offense. The "Real" Browns Defense has finally shown up and given up 2 TD leads in the second half back to back games....
All signs point to the Brownies losing. However in a season where all logic is lost, who knows what will happen tonight.

On ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning, Cleveland Native Mike Golic picked the Browns to cover the spread tonight. Golic feels that fellow ND alum, Brady Quinn will play 'good enough' for the Browns to win. Equally as surprising was Co-Host Mike Greenberg's feelings on the game tonight. He just doesnt like the Browns to cover, he likes the Browns to pull the upset. Not that beating the 5-4 Buffalo Bills is considered "Shocking the World" or anything...

Watch for the Browns Defense to show a few different looks as well as some more personnel rotating in tonight in Buffalo. Wimbley will be moved around, Shante Orr will see more playing time to hopefully limit Marshawn Lynch, and Brandon McDonald will see some much deserved time on the pine.

Quinn will see quite a few different looks tonight too. Watch for heavy blitzing, and the Roving D, or UFO Defense that the Browns have used a few times, to try and confuse Quinn.

Shaver Sports likes BQ to get his first W tonight. Browns: 28 Bills: 24
