The Cleveland Browns host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Sept. 8 in the season opener. But who has the most to prove as they take the field for the first time in their 2019 campaign?
With so many eyes on them throughout this offseason, the Cleveland Browns find themselves in some unfamiliar territory. For the first time in years, there are some high hopes that they can be a contender in not only their division but the AFC as a whole.
Having these expectations placed on them can create a lot of pressure. No longer can this team just win a few games and think they’ve made progress. Instead, anything short of a winning season will feel like a failure.
This creates quite a Peter Parker moment as the Browns now have some great responsibility put on their suddenly powerful shoulders. Fortunately, they have the star power on their roster to make it work.
From top-to-bottom on either side of the field, this team is pretty talented. But that doesn’t mean the burden of success won’t fall heavier on some than others.
This has led to some players receiving some criticism from skeptical outsiders. Unfortunately, that won’t stop until those voices are proven wrong. It may take a whole year to silence some of the doubters, but all these members of the team can do is take it game by game.
With that being said, we look at the four Browns with the most to prove as we kick off the 2019 NFL season.
