Zielinski: Packers should win — barely

By DAN ZIELINSKI

If Green Bay wants to keep its postseason hopes alive, they have to beat the winless Cleveland Browns on the road Sunday.

While most are overlooking the Browns, don’t be surprised if it’s a one-possession game.

Cleveland’s defense ranks 10th in the NFL in total yards allowed with its strength being its ability to stop the run, surrendering just 96.9 yards per game.

This matchup will come down to quarterback play. Green Bay’s Brett Hundley and Cleveland’s DeShone Kizer have both played inconsistently this season.

Cleveland’s defense is underrated and could give Hundley trouble, while the Packers have to generate turnovers if they want to win.

While I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Browns win, the Packers will find a way to escape with the victory.

Prediction: Packers 21, Browns 20
