PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Cleveland lost their damn mind.  They blew a chance to win, still tied, and acted like they won a Super Bowl.  They will be much better this year for sure, but it is an interesting reaction to a tie.  New Orleans ran into a buzz saw last weekend with Tampa.  Will they bounce back or not?  I can’t see how you can lay 9 or so in this spot, and you definitely can’t take the Browns on the road.  Hard pass.
