No. 1: Playing a complete game

The Cleveland Browns have played plenty of games this season where they’ve been able to hang with their opponents in the first half but then have faltered down the stretch and lost games. The battle against the Dolphins last week was a relatively close first half but that disintegrated in the second half.

Back in Week 7, Cleveland stuck with the Baltimore Ravens in the first half and then let the game slip away after the break.

In the first half of the season, it was of the Browns taking leads but then squandering them late as they did in both the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers games. They were bailed out in the Week 1 showdown with Carolina when rookie kicker Cade York hit a 58-yard game-winning field goal.

They weren’t as lucky against the Jets who pulled off a late win or the Falcons, who also won it in the end. They also had a shot to upset Baltimore in the final minutes, only to let another opportunity slip through their fingers.

With all that being said, Cleveland has struggled to put forth a full 60-minuted performance this season. Time is running out on them in 2022 but they can still find something positive, especially if they learn how to play until the final whistle.
