The Cleveland Browns' front office probably hasn't gotten much sleep this week.
They've been putting out fires surrounding the Peyton Hillis trade rumors and trying to find ways to ensure they don't repeat any of the many, many mistakes they made last weekend that caused them to lose to Oakland 24-17 in an all-around ugly, sloppy game.
Last week the score was close, but the game really wasn't. Pretty much everyone in the Browns' organization from front office personnel down to the players, rightly or wrongly, has been under fire in the wake of the team's disappointing performance in Oakland.
Mike Holmgren set the record straight on many of the off-field and media-driven issues plaguing the team in his press conference on Thursday. But what will and won't be fixed on the field by the start of this week's game is still unclear.
The Browns face off Sunday against a somewhat talented but ineffective Seattle Seahawks team, whose record matches up evenly with the Browns at 2-3.
Predicted to win the underwhelming NFC West before the start of the season, Seattle has yet to live up to such expectations. Seattle is a team that is beatable for the Browns, though it won't be easy.
Following are six predictions for the Browns in Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.
