By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com – The Browns got their groove back last week when they routed division rival Cincinnati to move up to the No. 8 seed in the current NFL Playoff picture. They did it as they’ve done most of this season, with the ground game. Cleveland features the No. 2 overall rushing offense, as well as the No. 3 overall rushing defense, and that goes a long way when it comes to cashing tickets with underdogs in this league. They also removed a cancerous tumor when they released disgruntled WR Odell Beckham. With Beckham, the Browns were 14-15. Without him, they went 9-4. With the Patriots on a 3-0 SUATS win skein and gaining a mere 6 YPG than they allow, we’ll make like Judge Judy and pronounce this case closed.
