Bet on the NFL Sportsbook record the Cleveland Browns that are currently 3-7-0 and ranked third in the AFC North Conference. Can the Carolina Panthers compete agains them, with their 1-9-0 record? The Carolina Panthers are in the midst of a season to forget and now they must play the Cleveland Browns November 28th. Both teams are looking forward to next year but the Cleveland Browns situation looks much more hopeful than the Carolina Panthers. Both teams enter the game below .500 and looking to salvage some pride in this meaningless game.
The Carolina Panthers were once a dominant running team and now they are down to third and fourth string running backs with the demise of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Couple this with quarterback situation that has been laughable and it is easy to see why the Carolina Panthers are so bad. The Carolina Panthers have averaged 250 yards of total offense this season which ranks last in the NFL.
When betting on football remember: the Cleveland Browns defense is allowing 113 yards per game on the ground and they are giving up over 245 yards per game in the air this season.
They are breaking in some new secondary members but they are slowly acclimating to the ways of the NFL. Early in the season the Cleveland Browns secondary was nicknamed toast as blanket name for the entire unit but they have stepped up in recent weeks and shut down some decent NFL passing games. The Cleveland Browns defense has the edge over the Carolina Panthers offense.
The Carolina Panthers are young on defense but they have done admirably with an inexperienced team. Compared to the offense, the Carolina Panthers defense is better than average by NFL standards. They are giving up an average of over 130 yards per game on the ground and 195 yards per game through the air. The loss of Julius Peppers on the front line has had a major impact on this team but they have moved on nicely.
