Question three: Can the Cleveland Browns offense have a zero-turnover game?
Two games in, and the only thing that has slowed down the Cleveland Browns offense so far is turnovers. In Week 1, a Nick Chubb fumble in the second half started the derailment of the Browns.
And last week a fumble and interception in the first half kept the Browns from likely scoring two additional times.
Besides that, you can’t ask for more. Baker Mayfield is 40-of-49 on the seasons for 534 yards and a touchdown and two interceptions. If he had one more touchdown, two fewer interceptions, and one more win (which they should have had in KC), everyone would be talking about Mayfield as an early MVP candidate.
The running game, it’s there too. Chubb has 178 yards and three touchdowns through two games, with Kareem Hunt adding an additional 84 yards and a touchdown.
The best news, there appears to be a good chance the Beckham will play on Sunday. He appeared to be really close the last two weeks, but with the team really needing him with the injury to Landry, look for him to finally make his debut.
Nothing needs to change for the Browns on offense, they just need to be more cautious, and hold on to the ball. Receivers need to be prepared to take hits and hold on, and Mayfield can’t be afraid to take a sack occasionally.
As much as that kills me to say, sometimes he creates his own trouble when he starts scrambling around.
