Eagles vs Browns Prediction & Pick
The Eagles have gone 2-10-1 in their last 13 exhibition contests, proving that they don't always put its best foot forward in August. Last week's loss shows that the Eagles have a lot to work on, including their third-down efficiency (5-of-17, 29.4%), an offensive line that gave up five sacks and a run game that averaged only 3.1 yards on 28 carries.
The Browns might be controversial, but it can't be denied that they're usually a good preseason team. Cleveland has won five straight exhibition games and looks to make it six come Sunday. Nevertheless, the Browns are 1-5 straight up in their last six meetings with the Eagles, which is a trend they must avoid.
Having said that, the Eagles have a lot of issues that can't be fixed in a week. Look for the Browns to emerge as the victors.
Final Score Prediction: Browns: 27 | Eagles: 20

Both teams have aspects to work on, but the Browns looked closer to being ready for the regular season last week. Cleveland also has the advantage of playing at FirstEnergy Stadium, which could help swing momentum in its favor. There's some value to be had on the moneyline, so back the Browns outright at home.
