NFL Week 4 NFL Picks: Browns win over Rams to open season 3-1

It has been an odd week in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns, who have not won a game since a 28-21 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

The Browns’ last victory came against the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 7, 2016, but Cleveland has lost the last four games dating back to Week 3.

Here is a look at some of the players who have been on fire in the past week.


Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills Tyrod had his best game of the season, completing 28-of-40 passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns with a touchdown to receiver Sammy Watkins.

He has thrown for 4,719 yards with 28 touchdowns and five interceptions, with 16 touchdowns on the ground.

He is the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 3,000 yards in a season, surpassing Brett Favre (3,859) and Peyton Manning (3.932) in the process.

Taylor is tied for second in the league with two rushing touchdowns, while he has nine rushing scores and is tied with Calvin Johnson for second on the team in rushing yards.

He was sacked three times on Sunday and has been sacked 16 times.


Terrance West, DE, Baltimore Ravens Terrance has been sensational in his two starts, totaling 10 tackles for loss, three sacks and one forced fumble.

West has been instrumental in Baltimore’s recent run of success, allowing just four sacks in his first two starts of the year.

He added one sack on Sunday, while also breaking up two passes.


Michael Bennett, DE/DT, Green Bay Packers The Packers have allowed just eight sacks in their last five games, including the last three of the regular season.

They are now 6-2 in those games, and Bennett is tied as the team’s sack leader.

The only player on the Packers to have more than one sack in the last five outings is Jared Allen, who has four.


Eric Kendricks, WR, New York Giants Eric has been a mainstay on the Giants offense, but has struggled in the absence of star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Kendricks has scored seven touchdowns in his last three games.


Ryan Mathews, RB, Philadelphia Eagles Ryan Mathewes has been the top running back in the AFC East this season, averaging a team-high 3.7 yards per carry.

Mathews has been targeted a team high five times and has rushed for eight touchdowns.

He could have a big game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.


Corey Coleman, WR-TE, Jacksonville Jaguars Corey Coleman has been playing at a high level since being drafted in the second round in 2014, but he has struggled with injuries.

Coleman has one touchdown on the year, while two other touchdowns have come against the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles.

He’s averaging just 3.8 yards per reception.


Tyreek Hill, RB-WR, Cleveland Browns Tyreek has had some tough times, but the Browns have won three straight and look to rebound from their Week 4 loss to Oakland.

The Cleveland running back has five catches for 80 yards and a touchdown, while adding another one on the game-winning touchdown.


Corey Davis, WR/TE, San Francisco 49ers Davis had one of his best games of the 2016 season on Sunday in San Francisco, catching five passes for 72 yards with a score.

He also caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
