Seattle Seahawks (4-1) versus Cleveland Browns (2-3)
Venue and weather: FirstEnergy Stadium, Partly Sunny, 61°F at kickoff
Prediction: Don’t look now, but it looks like Odell Beckham Jr. may want out of the Cleveland Browns organization. That should come as no surprise. Reality should finally be setting in for the city of Cleveland and everybody in the infamous ‘Dawg Pound’. Expectations and a quarterback who talks too much has put a huge target on the guys in ‘orange and brown’.
The Seattle Seahawks have had ten days to rest. Russell Wilson is better than Baker Mayfield. Pete Carroll is better than Freddie Kitchens. This is an easy one to pick. Final Score: Seahawks 31, Browns 13

The Washington Redskins may, very well, be the most dysfunctional franchise in the entire NFL, but they’re still better than the Dolphins. Final Score: ‘Skins 24, Phins 10
