NFL football is finally back. The Cleveland Browns will be on the field Sunday, Sept. 13 to take on the defending AFC North champions, the Baltimore Ravens.
It’s going to be a massive test for the Browns right out of the gate as they face the reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson and his high-powered offense. Cleveland was able to score a win in Week 4 over Jackson and the Ravens last season, but that was the final loss of the season for Baltimore as they went on a 12-0 streak after that.
Cleveland, however, went in the opposite direction. At this point, they were 2-2 but went 4-8 the rest of the way as they struggled to find any success whatsoever.
Their frustrating 2019 campaign ended with owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam cleaning house (again). Now, we have a new general manager in Andrew Berry and head coach in Kevin Stefanski. They got rave reviews for their work in the offseason and Week 1 will allow us to see how it all starts to come together — and there will be no shortage of questions for them to answer.
Will Baker Mayfield be able to shake off the rust from 2019 and can Odell Beckham, Jr. finally become the explosive playmaker he was supposed to be last year? IN addition to the offensive questions, the defense needs to silence their critics, especially when it comes to slowing down the run, and there’s no bigger test in that department than Baltimore.
