The Cleveland Browns will play the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4 of the NFL regular season on Sunday afternoon at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Cleveland Browns are 2-1 this season after they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 29-17 in Week 3. Cleveland trailed this game at halftime, but was able to outscore the Steelers 16-3 in the second half for the win. The Cleveland offense is averaging 28.3 points per game with 188 passing yards per game and 190.7 rushing yards per game. Jacoby Brissett has thrown for 596 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception for the Browns this season. Nick Chubb has rushed for 341 yards and four scores, while Amari Cooper has caught 19 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns for Cleveland. The Cleveland defense is allowing 24 points per game and 323.7 yards per game.

The Atlanta Falcons are 1-2 this season after they defeated the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 27-23 in their last game. Atlanta allowed 420 total yards in this game but was able to outscore Seattle 10-3 in the fourth quarter for the win. The Atlanta offense is averaging 26.7 points per game with 197.7 passing yards per game and 156.7 rushing yards per game. Marcus Mariota has thrown for 640 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also rushing for 92 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons this season. Cordarrelle Patterson (questionable) has rushed for 302 yards and two touchdowns, while Drake London has caught 16 passes for 214 yards and two scores for Atlanta. The Atlanta defense is allowing 27 points per game and 380.7 yards per game.

Cleveland is 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Week 4 games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 October games. The over is 5-2 in Cleveland’s last 7 Week 4 games. Atlanta is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 4-0 in Atlanta’s last 4 games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Cleveland played last Thursday, so they come into this game with a few more days of rest than Atlanta does. The Browns have a very good run game and the Atlanta defense is not very good. Atlanta’s offense has been able to score 26 points or more in each of their first three games, but I am taking the Browns here. Cleveland will lean on their ground game once again and Atlanta’s possessions will be limited.
