Can Baker Mayfield rebound, lift Cleveland past Carson Wentz’s Eagles? – NFL Nation

1 p.m. ET | Fox

Matchup rating: 37.1 | Spread: CLE -3.5 (45.5)

What to watch for: Can Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who has thrown as many interceptions this season as touchdowns (12), get anything going? He will have to take care of the ball with Browns defensive end Myles Garrett coming off the edge in what figures to be another bad-weather game in Cleveland. — Jake Trotter

Bold prediction: The Browns will score a defensive touchdown. Outside of last weekend’s game against the Giants, Wentz has been very giving with the football, turning it over 16 times. Cleveland is tied for fourth with the most takeaways (15) and will take one to the house on Sunday. — Tim McManus

Stat to know: Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield has zero passing touchdowns in each of his past two games. That’s his longest streak without a passing TD since going three straight games without one at Texas Tech in 2013. He also has fewer than 150 passing yards in these past two games for the longest such streak of his career (NFL and college).

Injuries: Eagles | Browns

What to know for fantasy: Both Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb have been top-22 running backs in three of their four fully healthy games together this season for Cleveland. See Week 11 rankings.
