No. 2 area to improve: Limit turnovers

Back in Week 6, the Browns had a game to forget when they turned the ball over four times in their loss to the New England Patriots. Since then, they have cleaned things up and Jacoby Brissett has found a way to start protecting the ball again.

Throughout the course of the season, Cleveland has had several opportunities to win games late. Some of those opportunities shouldn’t have even to have occurred if the Browns defense had done a better job of protecting leads.

But nonetheless, they had chances and under pressure, Brissett made mistakes. In both the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons losses the veteran quarterback threw interceptions as the offense attempted to either tie or win the game with a late drive.

With the next three games against some of the toughest teams on their schedule, it will be imperative that they can reduce the turnovers. The Dolphins haven’t recorded too many turnovers with their defense only having seven takeaways.

Cleveland hasn’t been much better either, with only eight forced turnovers. The Brown’s biggest hurdle might be against the Buffalo Bills in their Week 11 matchup as the Bills have forced 15 takeaways already this season.
