The New York Giants will play host to the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

New York is coming off a very tough 19-17 loss to their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants had a chance to steal the victory, but Lawrence Tynes fell just short on a 53-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds.

On the other hand, the Browns are still searching for their first win of the season under second-year head coach Pat Shurmur. Cleveland has played well at times, but it hasn't been able to find consistency. Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has been a work in progress, while Trent Richardson has been everything he was advertised to be.

On both ESPN and Yahoo, every analyst is picking the Giants to run their record to 3-2. However, the Browns get some credit from the CBSsports.com experts, who all pick them to cover the spread. Unfortunately for Cleveland fans, none are siding with their team straight up.
