Two very different teams find themselves in similar positions heading into the Week 15 “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Giants and the Browns.
New York (5-8) doesn’t bring much excitement when it comes to offense, yet the Giants are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. Following Washington’s loss to the Seahawks, the Giants can take control of the NFC East with a win over Cleveland.
The Browns (9-4), on the other hand, have tons of offensive fire power, which was on full display in last week’s 47-42 loss in overtime to the Ravens. That’s back-to-back 40-plus outputs for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland offense. The Browns currently occupy the second Wild Card spot in the AFC, but a loss could put that in jeopardy.
That being said, Cleveland has to like its chances with Giants starting QB Daniel Jones officially ruled out of Sunday’s game. Colt McCoy will start in his absence.
