After the Browns were predicted to suffer their first loss of the season in week five, it will be Patriots Vs Browns in week six.
After being absolutely embarrassed by the Patriots last year, the Browns look to get revenge. The key to this game for the Browns is executing on defense, especially after they were blown out 45-7 last year.
No matter what happens, the Browns’ defense probably won’t be as bad as they were last year when they faced them.
Browns Have to Execute on Defense
After letting up 45 points against the Patriots last year, the Browns have to get stops. And luckily for the Browns, they could shut down the Patriots’ passing game a little bit.
The Patriots don’t have the best receiving core, but someone like Hunter Henry can give them problems. Henry had a solid year last season, putting up 50 receptions, 603 yards, and nine touchdowns. The Browns will have to make sure to keep him contained.
Someone else that they need to keep contained is Damien Harris. Harris is an incredible player, showing that he is tough to take down on plays like this:

Last year, Harris had 929 yards and 15 touchdowns on 202 carries. He will be tough to contain with the state of the Browns’ defensive line, and if the Browns end up losing this game, Harris will probably be a big reason why.
Can’t Be Much Worse on Offense
Last year, the Browns only put up seven points against the Patriots. But, the Patriots did take a hit on defense this off-season. JC Jackson ended up going to the Los Angeles Chargers this off-season, but this defense can still be good. With Bill Belicheck managing a defense, it’ll probably be good to some degree.
Deshaun Watson will probably still be out of this game. He could be back after this game, though. It was rumored that his suspension will be eight games, but a six-game suspension doesn’t seem to be an outlandish idea right now. But really, anything could be possible at this point.

Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt should have a good day. The Patriots’ defensive line is going to be relying on some young guys, so the Browns could take advantage there.
This game could be a close one, so rookie Cade York may need to step up and make some kicks late in the game.
Patriots Vs Browns: Who Wins?
This should be a good game. The biggest advantage in this whole game might be the fact that the Browns have home-field advantage. So, with the crowd behind the Browns’ back, Cleveland should be able to get a close win.
Final Score Prediction: Browns 23, Patriots 17
Browns Record Through Six Games: 5-1
