NFL Record Predictions: Where do the Redskins end up in the pack?
By Ian Cummings
Many liken the 2019 Cleveland Browns to a “dream team” of sorts, in the context that one must eventually wake up, and surmise that reality is not as pleasant as the dream itself. But there’s no dream to wake up from here. Life is a dream for the new-look Browns, and they’re primed to compete in 2019.
With an offense stocked with talents like Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham Jr., and Jarvis Landry, and a defense laden with game-breaking talent on all three levels, especially in the front seven, the Browns have a top five roster, and they have an incredible coaching combination as well. Freddie Kitchens and Todd Monken are both common sense offensive minds who should glean the best out of their talent cast, and Steve Wilks will dial up creative looks on defense.
The Browns are in a relatively tough division, pitted against two teams who should fight to keep stride with them, in the Steelers and Ravens. But the Browns ascend both, in terms of talent and coaching, and this is the year they’ll officially break free from their chains.
