Yardbarker Logo By Chris Mueller of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 12: TV: FOX     LINE: Seattle -1.5What you need to know: Russell Wilson might be the NFL’s best quarterback at the moment; his touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett in Week 5 against the Rams may have been the best throw by any quarterback this season. Wilson leads the league in passer rating (126.3, well above the league average of 92.6), and has spread the ball out with aplomb. Chris Carson has had fumbling issues, but when he doesn’t put the ball on the ground, he can be devastating. He was against Los Angeles, churning out 118 yards on 27 carries. The Browns were humiliated by the 49ers. San Francisco’s defensive line harassed Baker Mayfield all night, and the Browns were sloppy, careless, and couldn’t make plays when required. There are no easy answers for Cleveland, as its offensive line is suspect, and the Browns have yet to find a game-to-game play-calling groove on offense.On the spot: Seahawks DT Quinton Jefferson. He has five quarterback hits and 17 hurries on the season, per Pro Football Focus. If he can consistently disrupt Mayfield’s pocket, Seattle should have a good chance at holding Cleveland’s offense in check.Browns G Eric Kush: He is Cleveland’s worst pass-blocking offensive lineman, with a 48.3 Pro Football Focus grade.

Seattle (4-1) at Cleveland (2-3), Sunday, 1 p.m. ET

TV: FOX     LINE: Seattle -1.5

What you need to know: Russell Wilson might be the NFL’s best quarterback at the moment; his touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett in Week 5 against the Rams may have been the best throw by any QB this season. Wilson leads the league in passer rating (126.3, well above the league average of 92.6), and has spread the ball out with aplomb. Chris Carson has had fumbling issues, but when he doesn’t put the ball on the ground, he can be devastating. He was against Los Angeles, churning out 118 yards on 27 carries.

The Browns were humiliated by the 49ers. San Francisco’s defensive line harassed Baker Mayfield all night, and the Browns were sloppy, careless, and couldn’t make plays when required. There are no easy answers for Cleveland, as its offensive line is suspect, and the Browns have yet to find a game-to-game play-calling groove on offense.

On the spot:

Seahawks DT Quinton Jefferson. He has five quarterback hits and 17 hurries this season, per Pro Football Focus. If he can consistently disrupt Mayfield’s pocket, Seattle should have a good chance at holding Cleveland’s offense in check.

Browns G Eric Kush. He is Cleveland’s worst pass-blocking offensive lineman, with a 48.3 Pro Football Focus grade. If he continues to struggle, it will put Mayfield’s health at risk and stifle Cleveland’s offense.

The pick: Browns 28, Seahawks 23
