Can the Cleveland Browns finally turn it around in 2020?
Coming into this season the Cleveland Browns have a roster full of talent but that was the case in 2019 and that talent didn’t translate to wins as the Browns missed the playoffs.
Maybe the roster wasn’t as good as everyone thought it was because there were several glaring holes and they showed but they addressed some of those problems in free agency and the draft.
By signing and drafting players at key positions and hiring general manager Andrew Berry and head coach Kevin Stefanski expectations are sky high once again in 2020. They also have Myles Garrett returning from suspension, a full year of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt working together, and a fully healthy Odell Beckham Jr.
Things have to be done differently this year on the field and in the locker room to avoid the same things that doomed this team last year. They have to be more disciplined and not commit as many penalties, they had 122 accepted penalties which was the eighth-most in the NFL.
They have to find a way to stop the run, they had the 30th ranked run defense. The signing of Andrew Billings at defensive tackle should help by eating up blocks and allowing the linebackers to flow and make plays.
Those are just some of the problems Cleveland faced in 2019. There will not only need to fix things they did wrong last year but also need to add some elements to their attack.
