The Lions and Browns will clash in Week 6 in Cleveland. The pair of 3-2 teams have had mixed success this season and are looking to build leads within their divisions with an inter-conference victory. However, despite their similar records and Cleveland's status as host, the Lions are favored on the road in this matchup. Detroit is a 2.5-point favorite, according to OddsShark.
The Lions are coming off a loss to the Packers in Week 5 that saw their offense stall without superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Quarterback Matthew Stafford had little to work with on offense and that showed in the box score. The status of Johnson is questionable for Week 6, so the Lions could be in for another rough outing against the Browns. If Johnson is able to play, look for the Detroit offense to open up quite a bit.
For Cleveland, the key will be to get the ball in the hands of Josh Gordon. The young wide receiver has been fantastic since coming back from suspension and has given the Browns a surge on offense. The Browns defense has greatly improved this season, so if the Browns can put up points, they may be able to pull off the upset.
The Browns will host the Lions at 1 p.m. ET Sunday. The game will be televised on FOX.
