Predicting the final 6 Cleveland Browns games in 2019
By Randy Gurzi
After winning two games at home, the Cleveland Browns are now 4-6. Here we look ahead to the final 6 games and predict their outcomes.
If you were to simply go by the headlines, it would seem as though the Cleveland Browns were coming off a devastating loss. That’s because there’s nothing positive being said as their huge win on Thursday Night Football was completely overshadowed by a huge mistake late in the game.
With just eight seconds left in their 21-7 won over the hated Pittsburgh Steelers, things got out of hand. Defensive end Myles Garrett and Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph got into an altercation which ended with Garrett ripping off Rudolph’s helmet and hitting him with it.
Afterward, the Browns defensive end was suspended for the season which ends his bid for Defensive Player of the Year. Before the suspension, Garrett was playing the best football of his career, recording 29 tackles and 10 sacks. He was on pace to break the team record for sacks in a season, which was 14.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait another year — unless he wins an appeal — to see if he can do that. But for the team, they have to pick things up and move forward. But what exactly can they do with a losing record and six games left? Well, they can finish strong, earn their first winning record since 2007, and build toward the future.
Here, we look ahead to the remaining schedule and try to predict just what they will do in the final month and a half of the 2019 season, starting with a Week 12 game at home against Miami.
