Time: 8:30PM (EST)
Spread: Philadelphia -14
Over/Under: 38.5
Preview: When the schedule makers put together the 2008 NFL schedule, and looked at week 15, chances are, they did not expect the Cleveland Browns to be 4-9. They expected this to be one of the better Monday Night Football games of the 2008 NFL picks season. As one of the more disappointing teams in 2008, Cleveland will look to at least put on a good national television show, and possibly knock the Eagles out of playoff contention Monday Night. The Browns have lost three in a row; at home to Houston and Indianapolis, and Sunday’s loss at Tennessee. Quarterbacks Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn are both out with injuries, so third string Joey Dorsey has been the man behind center for the Browns.
