      New York Giants logo    /    Cleveland Browns logo The New York Giants (2-2) host the Cleveland Browns (0-4) Sunday afternoon, at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ. Game starts at 1:00 pm on CBS (TV) and WFAN (Radio). Giants favorites over Browns. Spread is - 9 points. My pick is the Giants. As the New York Giants will try to take their anger out on the Cleveland Browns this coming Sunday, after the disaster loss to the Eagles last week on national TV. These are type of games where the Giants never step up their game and take advantage of these bad football teams like the Browns. Here are the three keys to the game in order for the Giants to win: (1) The rushing defense must shutdown rookie running back Trent Richardson who recently said he believes he can run all over the Giants defense. Big Blue must take his comments with motavation in to stoping this clown! (2) Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown need to have a bounced back week, after they their rear ends kicked by the Philadelphia Eagles's rushing defense. This part of the game would benifit Eli Manning if those two play really well. (3) How about sacking Brandon Weeden down to ground five to seven times this Sunday. the Giants defense only has a total of eight sacks entering this game and this should be game where they get it going. Injury Report: Giants Out: WR Hakeem Nicks (Foot), WR Ramses Barden (Concussion), DT Rocky Bernard (Quadricep), CB Jayrod Hosley (Hamstring), S Kenny Phillips (Knee). Doubtful: T David Diehl (Knee), LB Keith Rivers (Hamstring) Questionable: LB Michael Boley (Hip), S Antrel Rolle (Knee), G Chris Snee (Hip), CB Corey Webster (Hand) Browns Out: S Tashaun Gipson (Knee), TE Alex Smith (Hip). Doubtful: WR Travis Benjamin (Hamstring), WR Mohammed Massaquoi (Hamstring). Questionable: S T.J. Ward (Hand). Final score is Giants 31. Browns 17
