Cleveland Browns Takeaway No. 2 – The offense looked dominant
The real question from Sunay’s game was, which offense was better? The Chiefs had one huge play that probably puts them over the top, but the Browns outgained the Chiefs by 60 total yards and had more first downs.
In fact, the Browns appeared to be in a great position to go down and take the lead with only seconds left to go in the game. As much as the long touchdown that Johnson gave up bothered me, the interception from Baker Mayfield bothered me more.
Mayfield played lights out all day and got tripped up just as he was trying to throw the ball away and instead it went right to a Chiefs defender.
Bottom line, the Browns ran the ball with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt efficiently, and Mayfield had no problem throwing the ball with rookie wideout, Anthony Schwartz, also shining in his debut.
The biggest questions right now are, when will Odell Beckham return, and will he gel quickly? And how serious is the injury to Jedrick Wills (they say he’s day to day but will he miss a lot of time)?
Chris Hubbard stepped in nicely at left tackle, but you could tell the Chiefs quickly started to pick on him. Let’s hope the ankle injury isn’t serious and “day to day” means he can hit the field again next Sunday in the home opener against Houston.
