4.  Don’t let the Browns establish a running game:

The Browns have signed free agent running back Ben Tate in the offseason with the intention that he will be the missing piece to them establishing a running attack this season.  We know with Kyle Shanahan as the Browns new offensive coordinator that they will definitely try to get the run game going as Shanahan made the Redskins one of the NFL’s top running teams.

So logic suggests he will try to same with the Browns.  Especially with a mobile quarterback like Johnny Manziel who can run the read-option well.  The Redskins defensive line and inside linebackers will need to keep Ben Tate in check which will force the Browns to pass the ball more and create more opportunities for sacks and turnovers.     Redskins vs. Browns
