The Cleveland Browns grabbed an impressive win in Week 13 as they beat the Tennessee Titans by a final score of 41-35. They improved to a record of 9-3 and currently own the top Wild Card spot in the AFC. Despite the team's success, the Browns remain one of the most underrated teams in the league.

The Browns are on their way to making the playoffs for the first time since 2002 and have all the pieces necessary to make a deep playoff run. They boast one of the deepest rosters in the league and are playing just about as well as any other team in the NFL.

Cleveland Browns Super Bowl Odds

Somehow, the Browns are being undervalued when it comes to their odds to win the Super Bowl this season. They currently have the 12th-best odds in the NFL at +3400, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's futures odds. They rank behind teams such as the 6-5 Baltimore Ravens and a team they just beat in Tennessee Titans.

How is that possible?

It is downright disrespectful. The Browns currently lead the NFL with 157.8 rushing yards per game and are only allowing 104.3 rushing yards per game (No. 7 in the NFL). More importantly, the Browns have one of the healthiest and best offensive lines in the league right now. In fact, Cleveland leads the NFL in both pass blocking and run blocking, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Browns will look to improve to 10-3 and win their fifth consecutive game when they take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14 NFL action. Don't be surprised if they end up being a serious Super Bowl contender.
