Can’t Blame Nick Chubb
Following a disappointing and improbable loss to the Jets, fingers were pointed at all Browns. However, Nick Chubb shouldn’t hold any blame from the Jets game. Chubb had 110 total yards and three touchdowns, including a touchdown that put the Browns up two scores with less that 2 minutes in the game. Chubb is this teams MVP and shouldn’t be blamed for this loss. He did everything he could to set the Browns up in a position to win this game.
Defense and Special Teams need to Step Up
Following a poor second half against the Panthers, the Browns defense showed little improvement. The Jets offense has young talent across the board. However, our defense should carry the Browns during the Watson suspension. Not only has the defense been a let down, but also show no signs of leadership. Rumors have been swirling saying some players would rather do what they want instead of their job. Its shown in the second half of week one and most of week two. Special team were only an issue in the last two minutes of the Jets game. With a missed extra point and recovered onside kick. The onside kick showed that the Jets young and scrappy team wanted the ball more that Amari Cooper trying to slap it out of bounds. On a short week, the Browns defense have to step up because the offense clearly has so far this season.
Browns Vs. Steelers on TNF
Lastly, the Browns host their first primetime game comes against divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers. After beating the Steelers two out of three games, including a playoff win, lost both games a year ago. The Browns look for a big division win early in the season. You can catch the game on Amazon Prime Video with kick-off set for 8:15 p.m. Both teams look for a bounce back win following losses to the Jets and Patriots. Could be a great game to kickoff week three of the NFL season.
