Arizona Sports predicts Cardinals vs. Browns

The Arizona Cardinals get a break from playing some of
the NFL’s best as they welcome the 4-9 Cleveland Browns to

At 6-7 the home team has a chance to bring its record to
.500 while staying in the playoff race, but the Browns are
hoping to pull off the upset. Will it happen?

Give us your predictions in the comments below.

Vince Marotta Can the banged-up Cleveland Browns slow down the
Cardinals’ roll? Stranger things have happened, but I
don’t think the resurgent Cards defense is quaking in
their boots knowing that Seneca Wallace is lining up under
center for Cleveland. This will be a close game, because I
don’t think the Cardinals’ offense is capable of blowing
anyone out, but I think the Birds get it done.

Final Score: Cardinals 19, Browns 14
Doug Franz I believe in this defense.

I believe that Skelton can play horrible at times but he
does enough to win.

I believe the Cardinals would win in Cleveland.

Put this game in Glendale and start either a back-up QB or
a beat up starter and it’s a no-brainer.

I have no idea what will happen next weekend on the road,
in the cold, with Christmas on the mind but for this
weekend Cards are the easy choice.

Final Score: Cardinals 31, Browns 10

Dave Burns Isn’t it ironic that of the three games remaining for the
Cardinals, the Browns game is the one I’m most nervous
about even though it’s the easiest one left on the
schedule. The Cardinals are supposed to win this game;
hence I’m scared they won’t. But then I look at the
numbers and I’m reassured. In particular, the fact that in
their last three games the Browns are giving up an average
of 190 yards per game rushing. The last time the Cardinals
faced a run defense close to that bad, Beanie busted out
big time against the Rams. More of the same and the Cards
have nothing to worry about. .500 here we come.

Final Score: Cardinals 27, Browns 10
Tyler Bassett Cardinals continue their winning ways this Sunday. The
Browns’ offense runs into what has been a stellar second
half of the season for the defense. It doesn’t matter who
the QB is – for either team – because the Cardinals
defense will do enough.

Final Score: Cardinals 23, Browns 10
Adam Green I’m drinking the kool aid and it tastes good. The
Cardinals have won four of five and now get to face a team
that, to put it mildly, stinks? Yeah, I like their

The Cardinals defense is playing out of its mind lately
and gets to face a Seneca Wallace-led offense. He isn’t
good enough — or good at all, really — and the defense
should have its way Sunday. Add that to an offense that
should find its run game again and the Cardinals will
coast to a win and a .500 record.

Final Score: Cardinals 27, Browns 13

Carter Nacke With both starting QBs likely out, I think the Cardinals
will win this Battle of the Backups (TM, by the way). Add
in the fact that the Browns continue to be terrible season
after season, and Sunday should turn into an easy win for
the Cards.

Final Score: Cardinals 24, Browns 10
Joe Huizenga Fun Fact…the Browns are the last team to beat the Green
Bay Packers…oh wait, it was the pre-season when that

The Cardinals have been on a roll and Cleveland is both
offensively and defensively the blandest team in football.

IF the Cardinals are going to have any shot at the
playoffs they really need this one.

Final Score: Cardinals 27, Browns 10

Charlie Feinerman The Cardinals are facing a Browns team that will have
Seneca Wallace under center sue to Colt McCoy’s injury.
While Wallace is mobile, I don’t see that being a problem
for the newly-reinvigorated Cardinals defense.

Final Score: Cardinals 31, Browns 13
