Week 14 of the NFL Regular Season is present and this Sunday we have the NFC-West, 49ers of San Francisco 4-8 playing at the AFC-North, Browns of Cleveland 2-10 with the game being played at the First Energy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio with the kick-off scheduled for 1:05 PM ET and seen on FOX TV.
Have the 49ers started a new trend, winning? Yes, they got a win in their exciting game with the Bears of Chicago and squeaked out a 26-20 win in OT. Now they seek to stay in the win column by scoring back to back wins with favorable game with the Browns of Cleveland on Sunday.
The fans of the 4-8 49ers of San Francisco can thank QB B. Gabbert for the win, which was their 4th of the season as the 26 year-old Gabbert had the best game of his NFL career. He displayed his talent as a QB and as a RB, as first he passed for some 197 yards and 1 TD, and also rushed for 76 yards and 1 TD in that game.
That display of talent was sufficient to take the 49ers to an inspirational win on the road 26-20 over the Bears. San Francisco this season on the road had struggled until this win, as they are with 1 win and 6 losses on the road in 2015. In this upcoming game with the Browns the 49ers seek a win since the Browns have been allowing their opponents some total offense of 399 yards each game and the league’s worst on points allowed each game at 29 points.
It is expected that QB Gabbert will again look to his duo of RB S. Draughn and WR T. Smith to continue with assisting on the offensive side. RB Draughn has been replacing injured C. Hyde for the last 5 gamed, and against the Bears he had 13 carried for 36 yards and 1 TD, and 4 reception for 127 yards compiled in the last 2 games. To date has a total of 530 receiving yards compiled on 22 receptions in his 12 games and that ranks 2nd for his team.
If you like the 2-10 Browns of Cleveland you are more than likely aware of how the Bengals of Cincy routed your team 37-3 last Sunday afternoon. For the Browns that was their worst lopsided loss since back in 2005 and their 7th loss this season. Yes, the Bengals and QB Dalton overpowered your team.
The Browns QB Dalton completed 17 of his passes for 222 yards and 2 touchdowns and ran the ball on 4 occasions for 12 yards and a TD. The Bengals on the defensive side held the Browns offensively and only permitted them to score 1 FG in that game. The Browns are only with 4 games left on their schedule for 2015 and this game is with the 49ers who also have had their share of struggles this season, as they on home games are with 1 win and 5 losses.
If the Browns are to win, their QB J. Manziel who is anticipated to get the starting job again, needs to be correct on his decisions and on target on his passing game. In the last game QB Manziel played, that was against the Steelers he had a career most 374 yards passing with a TD and 1 intercept.
In this game QB Manziel will have a duo to throw to in WR B. Hartline who against Cincy had 8 receptions for 84 yards, and TE G. Barnidge who had 5 catches for 60 yards, and they will attempt to dissect the 49ers defense that has allowed opponents some 270 yards passing each game to date.
The sportsbook prediction for this game between the 49ers playing at the Browns is that the 49ers will beat the Cleveland by a TD.
