The Cleveland Browns are facing serious adversity at the moment. They need a big rebound win vs. the Lions with these 3 keys to victory.
The Cleveland Browns have been on the biggest roller coaster ride I think I have seen in the last 20 plus years of the team returning. Nothing is easy in the NFL, but that seems to always be especially true for the Browns.
Just two weeks ago the team finally parted with Odell Beckham after a drama-filled week. It started with a YouTube post by Beckham’s father and ended with the star receiver being excused from practice and later released.
Then that Sunday, the Cleveland Browns went to Cincinnati and demolished one of the hottest teams in the NFL. The team was 5-4, with total control of their own destiny.
Just seven days later it looked like a high school team showed up to face the New England Patriots and after going up 7-0 early, the Patriots scored the next 45 points and completely embarrassed the Browns.
Now comes the players vocalizing issues to the media. Myles Garrett was vocal about not making in-game adjustments, Jarvis Landry has made comments about getting the ball. I’m sorry, but complaining to the media about your boss, never ends well for yourself or the organization.
The bottom line, the playoffs start now for the Browns. They don’t need to necessarily win out, but they need to finish at least 3-1 in the division and 2-1 inside to even have a shot at the playoffs. Truthfully, I’m not sure 10-7 gets it done because the AFC is so tight right now.
One thing is for certain, you can only win one game at a time, and right now the Browns need to be focused on the Detroit Lions. Here are three keys for the Browns to come away victorious on Sunday.
