As the Cleveland Browns look to rebound in Week 2, these four under-the-radar guys must shine in order for the team to be victorious.
The Cleveland Browns didn’t start off the way they wanted to, but everyone knew it would be an extremely tough matchup as they traveled to Kansas City. The good news, it’s now time to move on to the Houston Texans.
This Week 2 matchup will be the Browns home opener, and it appears that DeShaun Watson will once again watch from the sideline because of contract and off-field issues. This matchup won’t be an easy one as the Texans played well in their week one victory vs. the Jaguars.
No game in the NFL is easy, but the Browns must come away with a victory to keep all their goals attainable. Below are four under-the-radar guys that must play well for the Browns to win.
4. Cleveland Browns safety, Ronnie Harrison
Ronnie Harrison was one of the few bright stars from last year’s defense. He was constantly making plays all over the field but he was ejected early in the game in Kansas City. With Grant Delpit still sidelined, the Browns are thin at the position and this really compromised the secondary.
Harrison must rebound. I agree, the Chiefs coach should not have pushed Harrison, but he also can’t retaliate.
With Delpit likely to play again, Harrison is the guy who will move around the entire defense and can really toy with the opposing quarterback. Tyrod Taylor has a lot of experience, but we have all seen he can make mistakes as well.
A big production game from Harrison could get him back on track with where he was last season.
