Browns vs. Jaguars: Week 11 start time, TV, radio info
By Thomas Moore
The Cleveland Browns, still in search of a win, are at home today against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here is how to watch or listen to the game.
The Cleveland Browns are back today for attempt number 11 to pick up a win this season.
This week’s opponent are the Jacksonville Jaguars, who come into the game at 6-3 and as the surprise leaders of the AFC South Division.
The Jaguars have been their division’s version of the Browns for the past decade. Like Cleveland, Jacksonville has its last winning season in 2007 and entered this season with six consecutive years of double-digit losses.
Jacksonville has also built a defense that is the league’s best in passing yards allowed per game (165.1), sacks (35), touchdown passes allowed (six), quarterback rating (65.9) and points per game (14.9); while checking in tied for third with the most interceptions (11).
In short, the Jaguars possess the type of defense that the Browns are currently in the process of building: one that can dominate the game and turn things over to an offense that wants to run the ball.
That is a good formula for today as the game is expected to be played in cold, wet and windy conditions. Whether or not the Browns can match Jacksonville’s philosophy, and if head coach Hue Jackson can resist the urge to have rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer throw the ball 45 times, remains to be seen.
