Despite that the Browns 24-10 loss to the Ravens in Cleveland earlier this season was a lot worse than the final score would indicate, the sharps are all over the Browns and the points this week, having bet the line down from 14 to 11, with most of the public still on the Ravens. This must have at least something to do with an undervalued (if not terribly misunderstood) difference between Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy. Which isn’t at all to say that Seneca is anything great, but it’s still a difference we’d be glad to buy into if we weren’t otherwise so scarred by “Seasons Beatings” headlines and everything else that happened the last time the Browns played a hated division rival on Christmas Eve (as well as everything that almost always happens when the Browns play hated division rivals in December).
So we’ll be safe and lay the points again. Ravens -11 over Browns (5 units).
Four more picks today, only home teams on Christmas Eve:
Lions -1.5 over Chargers (20 units) is our favo...

Wallace says it was his decision to call for a running play at the end of the first half instead of spiking the ball.
Seneca Wallace's starting days may not be over after his second start for injured Colt McCoy Saturday in Baltimore.
Another start for Seneca Wallace for the Cleveland Browns, is it to bad these starts are coming after the Cleveland Browns are at 4 & 10 or 4 & 9? Just think if Wallace was starting in the beginning of the season. Then Pat Shurmur may have been able to let Wallace win. It has been stated by many the Browns really don’t want to win at this point of the season. Many think...
The recent controversy surrounding the Browns' handling of Colt McCoy's concussion has dominated so much of the public discourse surrounding the team that it's overshadowed perhaps a larger issue regarding the second-year QB: Does McCoy have what it takes to lead the Browns out of the cellar and into contention in the AFC North?
Here’s the final injury report for week 16′s matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens as the two teams prepare to do battle, tomorrow at 1 p.m. For the Cleveland Browns: Quarterback Colt McCoy (head) has officially been ruled out. Backup Seneca Wallace will start in McCoy’s place. Four starters are listed as questionable: [...]
Browns coach updates injuries, including those to Colt McCoy and T.J. Ward. Replies to questions about Seneca Wallace, Steelers linebacker James Harrison and more.
Clearly, no one is feeling terribly apprehensive about today's game against the Cleveland Browns, who will be starting Seneca Wallace at quarterback and playing for absolutely nothing on a day they'd rather be home with their families.
This ought to be an episode of "Fear Factor" for them, because the Ravens are still smarting from last week's embarrassing...
It’s tough to remember that another football game actually took place between Colt McCoy’s concussion and this coming contest between the Browns and the Ravens, but it’s true: actual football has been played since James Harrison went all full-forced Zenedine Zidane on the Browns’ quarterback.
Seneca Wallace will be getting the nod once again, but his receiving corps is...
Colt McCoy will remain in Cleveland when the Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens this Saturday, but Browns coach Pat Shurmur said the second-year quarterback is trying hard to return to the field before the end of the season.
Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Colt McCoy will miss his second straight game because of a concussion, head coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday.
1. Colt McCoy - sitting at this point for precaution, performance or both?
PAT MCMANAMON: Neither. For injury. Anyone who took a helmet to the jaw from James Harrison like he did should be out a while. And if the Browns are using the slightest bit of caution, its wise. McCoy played 13 games, got hit pretty good and showed his abilities for those 13 games. The way the draft may play...

Multiple extensive studies and incidents of dementia and other brain injuries in former NFL players points to the seriousness of brain damage caused by repeated concussions. NFL players often deal with brain injury issues over the course of their careers in professional football, though many don’t realize the extent of the damage done until long after their playing...
Well, here we are again. Another AFC North matchup with the Browns heavy underdogs on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, who are headed to the playoffs once again. Three weeks ago in Cleveland, Ray Rice ran all over the Browns to the tune of 204 yards rushing. Colt McCoy, T.J. Ward, and Jordan Norwood will all be sitting this one out for our Browns. Anquan Boldin...
