The Cleveland Browns are set to take on the Baltimore Ravens with all of their goals still attainable. They must answer these questions to get the win.
The Cleveland Browns have hit a pivotal point in their schedule. They’re in a place where they must win or their dreams of making the playoffs for a second straight year go down the drain.
As bad as the Browns have been, the division is still wide open. The Steelers beating the Ravens last week and the Chargers taking care of the Bengals leaves the door open that much more if the Browns can get a win at home this Sunday.
The issue right now is the confidence level of the team, especially the offense. After forcing four Lamar Jackson interceptions in the Brown’s last game vs. the Ravens, that offense managed to score just 10 points for the entire game.
Baltimore’s defense stacked the box to take away Nick Chubb and played tight coverage vs. the wide receivers to make the throwing windows extremely tight for Baker Mayfield.
It seems like this is the case every week, either the defense plays well, or the offense plays well. It’s never both at the same time, unfortunately.
Even with an AFC North title within reach, there are still a lot of questions needing to be answered, here are four big ones.
Cleveland Browns Question No. 4 – Who is the right tackle?
There is a lot of speculation that James Hudson will start at right tackle for the injured Jack Conklin this week. Hudson was the Browns fourth-round draft pick in 2021 and has struggled in his prior first-team snaps.
It appears he has increased his stock in practice and may get a shot this week over Blake Hance. I don’t care who the right tackle is, but they must be better at protecting Mayfield. It’s been easy to criticize the quarterback latterly, but he has been under a ton of pressure from both sides.
