OUR PREDICTION: Brady is back and the Patriots are coming off a loss - no better time than to back Bill Belichick and Co. than now. Granted, 10.5 points is a lot to lay on a road team in the NFL but assuming Brady isn't rusty, the Patriots should run up the score early and often. The Browns won't be able to keep pace - just make sure you buy the hook down to 10.
