Cleveland Browns: 5 Bold Predictions vs. Patriots
The Cleveland Browns travel to Foxsborough to take on the defending Super Bowl champion the New England Patriots. Here are some things to look out for.
It is the end of the by week and Cleveland Browns fans are excited to put the first part of the season behind them. Too bad this week they have to face arguably the best team in the NFL.
That may not sit well but it should be a bitter sweet game. They don’t have a very good chance to win the game but their schedule really eases up after this.
The only two challenges left on their schedule is games against the Buffalo Bills and another matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. The other six games are against teams that probably won’t make the playoffs.
If the Browns want a chance to win the game their impact players will have to make impact plays on both sides of the ball.
They will have to be smart on offense with their play selection on offense because the New England defense has been historic so far this year. We know Bill Belichick is going to take away your best offensive threat but it debatable who that is.
Running back Nick Chubb has without a doubt been the Browns best player on offense this year, but Odell Beckham Jr. is probably the most talented.
New England do have the cornerback playing the best right now,Stephen Gilmore. So the Beckham problem may be solved like that.
On defense Cleveland will have to stop the run and put pressure on Tom Brady. The Patriots offense has not been great but the game won’t turn into a shootout because of their defense.
Coming off of a bye week the Browns should be healthy for the most part and a win could completely turn their season around.
