The Cleveland Browns will look to stay on their winning ways this Sunday when they play host to the Chicago Bears at 1 pm on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.
While the win against the Texans wasn’t pretty in Week 2, it was still a win nonetheless. Good thing for the Browns that nothing matters once the game is over except for the final score.
This Sunday, the Bears trot into town after beating the Bengals in Week 2. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields will make his first career NFL start.
If the Browns want to continue to build towards a winning streak, these three players will be the key to doing so.
Cleveland Browns key player No. 3: Demetric Felton
If I told you that Demetric Felton fell to the Browns in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, would you believe me?
Well, you will have to do just that and during training camp, the preseason, and his first two career games, Felton is proving to be another late-round draft steal for general manager Andrew Berry.
In Week 2 against the Texans, Felton found the end zone for the first time in his young career. He caught a screen pass from Baker Mayfield and took it 33-yards to the house. During the run, he hit B on the controller and busted out a nifty Madden-like spin move.
He ended the game with two catches for 51 yards and in all three of the snaps he played, he lined up in the slot. This will be crucial in the coming weeks; as wide receiver Jarvis Landry was put on IR with an MCL sprain.
With Landry missing at least the next three weeks, expect a lot of Felton from the slot. Luckily for Felton and the Browns, he has played from the slot before and has shown he is capable of handling the role.
The more Felton gets to play early in the season, the better it will be for him and this team down the stretch in what Browns fans are hoping to be an extensive playoff run.
