Despite a disappointing 6-6 start to the season, the Cleveland Browns captured a crucial victory over AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens in Week 14. The victory pulled Cleveland to just one game back in the division standings and staring down a second straight playoff appearance.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released odds for every team to make the NFL Playoffs. The Browns now hold +104 odds to make the postseason, but must take care of business down the stretch including a must-win matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15.

Browns Playoff Odds

Cleveland survived a furious second-half comeback effort from the Ravens in Week 14 thanks to a strong defensive stand in the final minutes.

The final stretch of Cleveland's schedule includes a pair of divisional matchups against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, in Weeks 17 and 18 respectively. While both those are great opportunities to secure a playoff berth, it's important for Cleveland to rack up as many wins as possible before this stretch.

The Browns stay at home in Week 15 hosting the Las Vegas Raiders, their lone remaining opponent with a sub-.500 record. Week 15 marks Cleveland's fourth and final matchup against an AFC West opponent after going only 1-2 in its previous games against this division.

Cleveland then travels to take on one of the best teams in the NFC in Week 16, the Green Bay Packers.

The Browns rushing attack will go a long way in deciding their playoff fate. Cleveland ranks fourth in the NFL with 143.5 rushing yards per game this season, though they'll likely be playing without Kareem Hunt in this one.
