San Diego at Cleveland
Well the Browns will trot out on the field yet again this week. However, they will be playing on a Saturday (and Christmas Eve). I am fortunate there are other things going on except watching the putrid team. Nonetheless, what is going on in this game?
Hunting the Browns
Rookie tight end Hunter Henry figures to have a solid outing against the Browns. Philip Rivers should find the weapon multiple times, including in the red zone. The Browns will not be able to limit the tight end.
The Running Back Spot
It will likely be Kenneth Farrow, but there’s a chance that Melvin Gordon could return from injury in this matchup. At this point, it doesn’t really matter who is in the back field – he will be successful against the orange and brown.
Griffins Last Chance?
For some odd reason, Hue Jackson is sticking with Robert Griffin as his quarterback in this game. The veteran has no business playing, as rookie Cody Kessler looks like an upgrade at this point. I do not have high hopes for the Browns’ offense.
Conclusion: Outside of a mammoth outing by Isaiah Crowell and a turnover-filled day by the Chargers’ offense, there are few scenarios where I could witness a Browns victory. The team will fall at home and will be one defeat from embarrassment. If those idiots actually do put on a parade, then that would be a bigger embarrassment. Go Browns!
