Question one: Can the Cleveland Browns defense turn up the heat?
One thing that is getting tiring for Cleveland Browns fans is the lack of pressure on the quarterback. In Week 1, Myles Garrett and Jadaveon Clowney both got after Patrick Mahomes, he just moved around so well, Garrett only got to him once.
In Week 2, Garrett really didn’t create any issues, and Clowney was only effective vs. the run. There were a couple of plays here and there where they got some pressure, but Grant Delpit was the only player to record a sack on Sunday.
Why does the defense need a better pass rush?
The defense backs need to tighten up coverage. Teams are destroying our lose coverage, but defensive coordinator, Joe Woods, seems hesitant to tighten things up with a lack of pass rush.
The Chicago Bears biggest weakness on offense is their line. They faced multiple injuries in camp, and the group has been thrown together week to week. This must be the week the Browns breakthrough and make things difficult.
Even if they must use a blitzer here and there to create pressure, the Browns can’t let the Bears offense get momentum. The Bears defense is too good for the Browns offense to be able to score on every drive, they must get pressure which will lead to stops.
