In this week’s column on Pro Football Weekly, I talked about the test this young Cleveland Browns offense will face on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. In the name of progress, it is vital that the entire team pulls out a win, but the offense especially has to build on its encouraging performance against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The grim reality of having an anemic offense has stayed away from the Browns this week. In fact, the Browns looked every bit like a legitimate NFL team against the Bengals last Sunday, with rookies like RB Trent Richardson and QB Brandon Weeden leading the way.
Amazingly for the Browns, that was exactly how they drew it up. After a disastrous season opener in which Weeden posted a 5.1 passer rating and Trent Richardson rushed 19 times for only 39 yards, the Browns’ second game allowed fans, coaches, and the front office to breathe a tremendous sigh of relief.
But they aren’t out of the woods just yet. In this week’s game against the Bills, the Browns are looking at a fork in the road of this season and, potentially, the future of the franchise.”
