The Cleveland Browns are facing a ton of obstacles this Sunday, but they still can win if they follow these three blueprints.
One thing is for certain, the Cleveland Browns matchup vs. the Las Vegas Raiders should at least be interesting. Fans aren’t quite sure who will be able to play and who will remain on the COVID19 list, and there is a good chance you see some guys playing a ton of snaps you haven’t even heard of.
The highlight of the list who won’t be playing (currently) is Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, Wyatt Teller, Jedrick Wills, and Austin Hooper. Oh, that’s just on offense. Don’t forget that Troy Hill, John Johnson III, and Takk McKinley will also be missing the game (as of now), on the defensive side of the ball.
I don’t know if anyone really thought the NFL would consider moving the game to help the Browns, but man it sure would have been nice. After multiple games were moved last season, we have yet to see anything of that sort in 2021, so it’s not shocking the NFL avoided it.
Not only will the Browns enter this must-win game without key starters and role players, but they will also be without their head coach, Kevin Stefanski, who also tested positive for the virus for the second time. Remember, he was forced to miss the playoff victory in Pittsburgh as well
Injuries have always been a major part of the game in the NFL, but this will be one of the most challenging games I can remember. With this being an AFC matchup to move to 8-6, the Browns season is likely over if they can’t find a way to get the victory.
One thing is for certain, the Browns will need every bit of home-field advantage they can get on Sunday. Below is the blueprint to victory for the Cleveland Browns this Saturday.
