This is tough spot for the Buffalo Bills with a rookie quarterback and a rookie head coach in their first Thursday night game. This will be the short week of preparation and you have to factor going on the road so the Bills may go very basic in this game and look to shorten the game. These two teams have met three times in the past four years and the under is 3-0 in those games. The Cleveland Browns this season has looked very good on defense. When you watch their games you see how well they swarm the ball carrier and how fast the read and react plays from opposing offense. This read and react ability by the Browns puts them in the proper tackling spot and angle which avoids big plays and that is critical in keeping scores low and aids in betting the under. The Browns currently rank as the number three defense in the NFL as the club allows just 291 yards per game. On offense they have struggled as they currently rank 29th in the NFL in scoring offense. Cleveland has scored 10 or fewer points in two of their three games this season. The Browns are also young and may look to avoid making mistakes in a short week of preparation. The Bills have struggled with their passing game as they are throwing for 298 yards a game ranking 28th in the league. They also have some injury concerns with running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
