The Cleveland Browns have a very difficult road trip this week, as they travel to California to face the 5-1 San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco has been one of the league's biggest surprises this season, but two of the game's most exciting kick returners in Ted Ginn Jr. and Joshua Cribbs will face off. Still, most people are going against the Browns in this road contest. One site calls the Browns overrrated because of their wins:

I'm listing the Browns because their three wins might make them overvalued. Cleveland's three victories this year have come against the Colts (0-7), Seahawks (2-4) and Dolphins (0-6). They lost their other games by a combined score of 82-47

SBR Forum also has the Browns trending toward another loss, mostly based on the injuries they have had on the season. this calculation is based mostly on a a mediocre offense that is barely producing more than 16 points per game.
