[1:00 PM] Giants @ Browns

Who will WIN this matchup?

New York Giants (7-3)

@ Cleveland Browns (0-11)


The New York Giants must guard against overconfidence Sunday as they aim for their sixth consecutive victory when they visit the winless Cleveland Browns. Four of the five wins during New York’s run of success came at home, including last week’s 22-16 triumph over Chicago, and each of its 10 games this season have been within one score in the fourth quarter.

The Browns hope to end their skid behind Josh McCown, who will make his third start of the season as rookie Cody Kessler entered the league’s concussion protocol after being injured in last week’s 24-9 setback against Pittsburgh. McCown, who missed six of Cleveland’s first eight games with shoulder and collarbone injuries, is 65-of-122 for 778 yards with five touchdowns and six interceptions in four contests this season.

Jason Pierre-Paul was one of four players who did not participate in practice on Wednesday. The veteran defensive end, who registered 2 1/2 sacks in the win over the Bears, is dealing with a sore knee. Odell Beckham Jr. has made all of his team-leading six touchdown catches over the last six games and has recorded a league-high 31 since 2014.

Cleveland has recorded a total of 16 sacks – six more than Buffalo’s Lorenzo Alexander, Seattle’s Cliff Avril and Kansas City’s Dee Ford, who share the league lead.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard is tied for the league lead among rookies with five touchdown receptions.
