The Cleveland Browns return to action Sunday and face the Ravens in another must-win. These three players will be key to Cleveland securing a win
Hopefully, the Cleveland Browns have gotten some well-needed rest and recovery over the last two weeks and are ready to play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday down at First Energy Stadium. These two teams played a couple of weeks ago and lost 16-10, even though the Cleveland defense played very well, including four interceptions. It was the team’s offense that was off that game and couldn’t play with any consistency.
With the club now rested and hopefully healed and healthier they hope to win this next game because if they don’t, their remote playoff chances will be completely gone. This is certainly a must-win. There are many things that have to go right for this team on Sunday and there are several Cleveland players that really need to step up and play like they want to win the game.
The Browns learned this week that several players will be missing from action due to Covid protocols. Tight end David Njoku, linebacker Anthony Walker, and punter Jamie Gillam will all be sidelined, so the importance of others stepping up will be even more vital.
This season, Cleveland has been very inconsistent. If it’s not the offense one week, it’s the defense the next week. The way the Browns offense has gone south really for the last two months has been very concerning. Can the team get these issues resolved with a bye week? I don’t think so, but maybe they’ll at least play more inspired and with a bigger sense of urgency come game time Sunday.
Let’s look at a few key players that could have an impact in the game that the Browns have to have.
