Bold predictions as the Cleveland Browns travel to Dallas
While the Cleveland Browns are finally above 500 for the first time since December of 2014 at 2-1, there is still plenty of concern with how good this team can be with struggles on both sides of the ball. Through three weeks quarterbacks have been able to have their way with the Browns defense, although they finally caused some turnovers in week three.
The Browns were hopeful to get healthy before last week, however, they seemed to regress a bit as Denzel Ward was unable to play the second half vs. Washington. Mack Wilson was active but hardly saw the field at all. It’s unclear if he tweaked the knee in pregame or if he wasn’t just quite ready to after his first play on the field.
Now the Browns must get ready for their biggest test of the season (I never really gave them a shot vs. Baltimore) as they travel to Dallas to face a potent Cowboys offense. If fans are frustrated with what Joe Burrow and Dwayne Haskins did vs. this defense, it could be even uglier with Dak Prescott next weekend.
While I have focused on a lot of the negative to begin, there is reason to be excited as a Browns fan. The team is above .500 and can’t end the first quarter of the season any worse than 2-2, which is all you can ask for. As we flip the script from Washington to Dallas, here are 5 bold predictions for the Browns next weekend as they push to get to 3-1 on the season.
