The Cleveland Browns will host the San Francisco 49ers today. Here are three keys to the Browns breaking their seven-game losing streak.
In the Cleveland Browns quarterback revolving door, Johnny Manziel has been named the starting quarterback for the last four games after the Austin Davis-led offense only produced three points in the blowout loss last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Many view these final four games as Manziel’s last chance to prove he can be the quarterback of the future following his latest off-field mishap during the Browns’ bye week, which led to his benching.
The Browns enter the last quarter of the season with a dismal 2-10 record, but do have a winnable home game today against the San Francisco 49ers.
Many Browns fans are on board for the team tanking to secure the No. 1 overall draft pick in next spring’s NFL Draft, but that is simply not how organizations run. You play to win each and every game, and the Browns are desperate for a win to salvage some positives entering next season. Here are the match-ups and keys to the game for the Browns to get a much needed home win on Sunday.
