San Diego Chargers vs Cleveland Browns Preview

Chargers vs Browns

Jason Miller-US Presswire

The San Diego Chargers will play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Cleveland at 10:00 AM PDT.  San Diego has a 14-7-1 record all-time against Cleveland dating back to the 1970 NFL season.

San Diego is 7-1 in their last eight games against Cleveland and won their last four games against them.  San Diego has not played Cleveland since the 2009 NFL season.

San Diego needs to redeem themselves after their embarrassing loss to the Denver Broncos last week which dropped their record to 3-3.  Cleveland lost to the Indianapolis Colts in their last game.

San Diego averages about 25 points per game which is ranked 11th in the league while Cleveland averages 21 points per game which ranks 21st in the NFL.

Cleveland averages 5.3 yards per play which is ranked 21st in the league while San Diego is at 5.2 which is ranked 27th out of 32 teams.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers averages 7.1 yards per pass attempt which is tied with Michael Vick for 21st in the NFL.

Cleveland QB Brandon Weeden averages 6.6 yards per attempt which is tied with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Christian Ponder and Matthew Stafford for 26th in the league.

The two teams are not separated by that much in their rushing attacks because San Diego averages 3.9 yards per attempt while Cleveland is at 3.8 yards per attempt.

San Diego is giving up about 23 points per game which ranks 16th while Cleveland gives up about 26 points per game which ranks 23rd in the NFL.

San Diego gives up 5.6 yards per play which is ranked 20th while Cleveland is ranked 22nd in this category at 5.7 yards per play.

Cleveland currently has a 1-6 record.  San Diego has beat up on bad teams this year because their three wins are against teams with a combined 6-13 record.  I expect this trend to continue with a 31-13 Chargers win.
