Week 4 brings the Cleveland Browns to Minnesota to face the Vikings. Here are 5 bold predictions as Kevin Stefanski battles his former team

Sitting at 2-1 after three weeks, the Cleveland Browns are set to play the Minnesota Vikings on the road in Week 4.

As of now, Minnesota is 1-2 but that doesn’t mean they should be taken lightly. Their two losses were by a combined four points and their win last week was by 13 over the Seattle Seahawks who aren’t exactly scrubs.

On top of that, they’re going to know Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski incredibly well since he was in their organization from 2006-2019. None of this means the Vikings should be favored, but it does mean the Browns have to take them seriously.

With how they have approached every game under Stefanski, there’s no doubt they will do just that. And here, we look ahead to the game and make five bold predictions for Cleveland as they face off with the Vikings in Week 4.

Cleveland Browns Bold Prediction No. 5: Offense goes 2-for-2 on fourth down

Last week against the Chicago Bears, there was very little to criticize. However, there was one thing that caused frustration early, which was when Baker Mayfield was sacked twice on fourth-down attempts.

It’s nice to see the aggression from Kevin Stefanski but the execution was lacking. The good news is, he trusts this offense and should continue to stay aggressive in such situations.

This first bold prediction is that Cleveland again finds themselves attempting two fourth-down conversions but this time, they succeed on each and score touchdowns rather than settling for field goals.
