Which Washington players do the Cleveland Browns need to be aware of?
The Cleveland Browns were able to get the taste of losing out of their mouths in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Now the question is, are they going to be able to do it again in Week 3? With the Washington Football Team coming to town, the Browns will need to handle their business in a game that they will be favored in.
If the Browns wish to fulfill their postseason aspirations, then they have to win the games that they are ‘supposed’ to win and upset a few of the teams that they are ‘supposed’ to lose to along the way. In that respect, this upcoming game against Washington is a must-win.
Washington comes to Cleveland sporting a 1-1 record, the same as the Browns. Washington is a young talented team with a veteran head coach at the helm in Ron Rivera. Coach Rivera is being tasked with bridging the gap between inexperience and talent, and to teach his young team what it takes to win.
With all the turmoil surrounding the team, coming from the very top of the organization, Rivera needs to put blinders on his players to block out all the outside distractions. Washington is currently in a place that the Browns have occupied for years; the land of dysfunction. Off field issues aside, this Week 3 matchup should answer a plethora of questions for both teams.
While the Browns do have a better overall collection of talent, they will have their hands full in a couple of spots this upcoming Sunday. Let’s examine three players on the Washington Football Team that the Browns will need to pay special attention to in their Week three matchup.
