The Cleveland Browns were originally set to open as early 3-point home underdogs against the Jacksonville Jaguars ahead of their Week 14 match-up, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. We waited to post the article until after the Jaguars' Monday Night Football game, though, and sure enough, QB Trevor Lawrence suffered an ankle injury that has shifted the line significantly. Cleveland is now favored by 1.5 points, and the over/under on the game is currently 34.

The Browns (7-5) are coming off of a two straight road losses, with the latest one being a 36-19 loss to the Los Angeles Rams that was a lot closer than the final score would indicate. QB Joe Flacco was pushing the ball downfield and appeared to tie the game with nine minutes to go, but K Dustin Hopkins missed the extra point, and everything seemed to spiral out of control from there.

The Jaguars (8-4) are coming off of a 34-31 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Jaguars had been rolling and were in position to control their own destiny toward the No. 1 seed in the AFC, and were initially favored by 3 points over the Browns. In the fourth quarter, though, QB Trevor Lawrence suffered an ankle injury, and that threw everything into disarray and got the attention of Browns fans.

The over/under for the game is 34.
