Predicted Score: Patriots 31, Browns 14
New England: It appears the Patriots can do wrong. Tom Brady is completing passes at a 79% clip, Randy Moss has four-straight 100-games to go along with 7 touchdowns, and the team has scored 34+ points in every game this season. With that being said, who thinks they will lose to Cleveland this week? Answer: Nobody. Sammy Morris filled in for an injured Laurence Maroney and rushed for a game high 117 yards on 21 carries. It appears Maroney will be limited in practice this week again so check injury reports close to gametime to see if he plays. Rodney Harrison, who missed the first four games after violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, returns this week.
- Start: QB Tom Brady, WR Randy Moss, RB Sammy Morris, Patriots D/ST
- Consider: WR Wes Welker, TE Ben Watson, WR Donte Stallworth
- Sit: RB Laurence Maroney
Cleveland: The Brownies are a pleasant surprise sitting at 2-2 after four weeks with Derek Anderson ranking fourth among quarterbacks with 9 touchdowns. Wide receiver Braylon Edwards and tight end Kellen Winslow remain must-starts every week. Both are averaging over 18 yds per catch and both should get plenty of opportunities this week as Cleveland plays catchup to the Patriots in the second half. Derek Anderson should be strongly considered as well.
- Start: WR Braylon Edwards, TE Kellen Winslow
- Consider: QB Derek Anderson
- Sit: RB Jamal Lewis WR Joe Jurevicius
