Week 1 NFL Picks: Eagles Vs. Browns

The Philadelphia Eagles open the regular season against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Eagles enter Sunday's game as 9-point favorites over the Browns. The last time these two teams met in the regular season, the Eagles beat the Browns 30-10 on Dec. 15, 2008.

The Cleveland Browns have improved personnel wise with first-round picks Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden. Richardson has been dinged up, as have some safeties in the secondary. In addition, three defensive starters for the Browns will be out. That may not be good against the combination of Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy.

The Browns may be improved, but the Eagles just have too many weapons for a team like the Browns. Expect this game to go in favor of the Eagles.

Prediction: Eagles 27, Browns 10
