The NFL has 15 matchups in Week 8, including ours, Cleveland at New England, which may be the most intriguing of them all. The Patriots are undefeated (7-0) and are coming off their blowout win over the Jets on national television. Cleveland, on the other hand, doesn't have a stellar record (2-4) but boy, are they an exciting team. Plus, they're coming off a bye week while the Pats are coming off a short week, adding to the intrigue.
The Week 8 game between Cleveland and New England will be their third meeting since the turn of the decade. New England has won the last two, while Cleveland won their first meeting of the 2010s.
Kickoff is set for 4:25 P.M ET and CBS will be on broadcasting duty.

Cleveland Needs Big Win

Say what you want about the Cleveland Browns but they're as interesting an NFL team as we currently have. They have several notable stars, yet the team can't seem to get on track. In six games, they have managed just two wins, though one was against a great team (Baltimore). This week, the task will be harder than it's ever been, however.

Cleveland's biggest problem is at offensive line, which could be disastrous against the Pats. New England has an above-average pass-rush and overall, they're allowing less than seven points per game. The Browns have let Baker Mayfield get hammered this year, and it doesn't help that Baker has been wildly inaccurate. In the first five games, Baker was sacked 16 times and overall, the second-year quarterback leads the NFL in interceptions.
Outside of Josh Rosen, no quarterback who has played in at least five games has a lower passer rating than Baker Mayfield (66.0). On the bright side, the Browns are totally healthy offensively and will be at full strength against New England.

PatsPlaying Legendary Defense

The New England Patriots haven't lost yet this season, posting a 7-0 record through three games. What's more, the Patriots have had four games where they held their opponent to one score or less and not once has a team scored more than twice against them.

There’s something about MNF & safeties.

The defense for New England is historically stingy and the numbers are incredible. Against the Pats, opposing quarterbacks have only thrown one touchdown pass in seven games. That's compared to the 18 interceptions they have registered against opposing QBs.
Also, compared to the greatest defenses of all time, the 2019 Patriots are the best ever. They're allowing 6.9 points per game, less than the 1985 Bears (12.4) and 2000 Ravens
