Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Cleveland Browns-Washington Redskins Week 4 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Cleveland Browns vs. (-9.5) Washington Redskins (1-2), 1 p.m.
Mike: Browns. That is A LOT of points for the Redskins to cover. Cleveland is second in the league in yards per rush, while Washington is allowing 4.6 yards per carry. And if for some reason the ‘Skins slow the Browns’ rushing attack, Cleveland should be able to take advantage of a depleted Washington secondary.
Ricky: Browns. Wait. I’m expected to take the Redskins (against anyone) by two scores? You’re adorable.
Andre: Browns. If it wasn’t for Cody Parkey’s ineptitude at his job, Cody Kessler would’ve won his first start. He looked solid in his debut, and Terrelle Pryor gives the Browns’ offense a versatile aspect that not many teams have. Washington’s run defense stinks, too, so expect a field day for Isaiah Crowell and the Cleveland running attack (5.7 yards per attempt).
