Cleveland Browns, D/ST
This year’s Browns don’t look like your Browns, your other brother’s Browns and certainly not your father’s Browns, and nowhere is that more evident than defensively. They have allowed 21 or fewer points in all three games thus far, with nine sacks and 11 takeaways (five interceptions and six fumble recoveries).
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has put up good yardage through the air this season, but he has also thrown a tied for league-high five interceptions and the team has generally faded in all three second halves to this point. So the Cleveland defense is set up to succeed again in Week 4, as Carr will probably offer a couple ill-advised throws.
Their matchups beyond after that don’t look great, with the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons on the schedule. But for this week, the Browns can be considered as a top streaming defense.
