Week 9 Predictions: Can Cleveland Browns score road win in Denver?
The Cleveland Browns look for a win on the road and members of the Dawg Pound Daily crew predict the score against the Denver Broncos
This week turned into a lot of drama, and really it was for no good reason. Long after the Cleveland Browns loss to the Patriots should have been in the rearview mirror, Tony Grossi decided to bring it back up as he asked Baker Mayfield about a second-quarter drive that ended with no points.
Anyone who has followed Mayfield since the Browns started looking at him as a possible No. 1 overall pick knows the backstory. Grossi has been adamant that Baker was the wrong pick and even said he would be done if the Oklahoma product was chosen by Cleveland.
Of course, Mayfield was the pick and Grossi never left. Instead, he’s worked to prove he was right about the young man and continues to push his buttons. He did so during the Wednesday presser which led to Mayfield storming off and Grossi going on an “I told you so” rant worse than anything Hue Jackson ever did.
He wants to prove he’s right so badly that he even took down a paywall for his website to offer free content — simply to show the world why he thinks Mayfield was wrong and he was right.
The good news is, the Browns are about to play another game which could help put all this nonsense to bed. On Sunday, they travel to Denver to take on the Broncos, a team they beat 17-16 last season.
Denver will be without starting quarterback Joe Flacco as Brandon Allen makes his first start in the NFL. That could play into Cleveland’s favor, but they have to learn to get out of their own way first.
