Most of all, Cleveland has got to keep their focus if they want to have any shot at victory. Even if the team does everything right to keep themselves in the game, miscues could derail their hopes. These are avoided with concentration and discipline.
Penalties are the first issue. Turnovers are another critical aspect. Little unexpected miscues that pop up in seemingly every game can never be anticipated. Not everything unfortunate that happens to the Browns makes a lot of sense.
While the team may not be able to completely prevent any sort of strange occurrence, they can minimize the chances for them by playing disciplined football. This stems from focus, which can only be achieved through a relentless concentration even when the situation doesn’t call for it.
The Browns are 0-11, and many fans have completely checked out at this point. But the players cannot, and must finish strong. One reason, of course, is that it is their job too. More importantly though, if the team wants to avoid a winless season, they have no choice but to act as if the game means something to them.
The Giants are a team the Browns can beat with the right combination of factors coming together. It won’t be easy, but nothing is. All the team can do is implement their game plan, and respect the meaning of the game.
