The Philadelphia Eagles will visit Cleveland on Sunday September 9, 2012 to face the Browns in week 1 of the NFL regular season at 1:00 PM ET.
The Eagles come as favorites on the road with a point spread of -7½ along a total over-under line of 42½ points.
The Browns have drafted RB Trent Richardson from the Crimson Tide in an attempt to improve their offensive game. Richardson will surely bring in some much needed explosiveness to the franchise. He will most likely play together with QB Brandon Weeden, relieving Colt McCoy from the starter position.
Cleveland had a record of 4-12 taking the last spot in the AFC North along a record against the football spread of 7-7-2.
The Eagles fell far from the “Dream Team” label they had last season failing to reach the playoffs. Philadelphia drafted defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychal Kendricks in an attempt to improve their run defense, which surrendered an average of 112 yards per game last season.
The Eagles had an overall record of 8-8 and 8-8 ATS last season, finishing second in the NFC East.
These two teams last met on Monday December 15, 2008 when the Eagles defeated the Browns with a score of 30-10 in Lincoln Financial Field. Bets on Philadelphia covered the point spread of -16 that day.
