Browns vs. Raiders: Predictions

Nate Ulrich (2-0-1)

Browns 26, Raiders 20

Baker Mayfield and Co. become the latest group to benefit from Jon Gruden and the Raiders trading Khalil Mack.

Steve Doerschuk (1-1-1)

Raiders 20, Browns 17

The whole Browns vibe is changing, but beating a decent team that is full of veterans and is in desperate straits, without having won on the road since 2015, is like trying to spit into a black hole.

Marla Ridenour (2-0-1)

Browns 17, Raiders 14

Browns defense takes advantage of disconnect on Raiders offense.

George Thomas (2-0-1)

Browns 21, Raiders 17

Only because picking them to win is the trendy thing to do.
