Browns Solid Start
The Cleveland Browns are off to their best start since 2004, putting up a record of 0-1-1 through week 2.

That’s right, with just a tie and a loss the Browns have been more successful than they have been in 13 years through the first two weeks of the NFL season. Of course, this is both heartbreaking and joyful for Browns fans as a lot has not gone their way as usual. Both games they have had opportunities to win but only have one tie to show for it. Week one resulted in a 21-21 draw with the Pittsburgh Steelers, in which impressively the Browns came back from down 14 to take it into OT. Both at the end of regulation and the end of overtime the Browns had the chance to win but instead resulted in an interception and a blocked field goal by linebacker T.J. Watt. Week two against the New Orleans Saints can be blamed on the Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez, who managed to miss not only both of the PAT’s but two field goals, including the potential 52 yarder at the end of the game that would have sent it into overtime where they could have at least shot for another tie. He has since been released after his abysmal performance.

 

While it is not the greatest of starts, it is far from the worst and the way they have played it seems they could still potentially win a few games this year. With talent such as Baker Mayfield who has yet to get his shot in the regular season, along with the threats of Jarvis Landry and David Njoku, the offense is revamped and can be dangerous. A huge loss to the offense, however, was the trade of Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots. This is due to the fact that over the years Gordon had a lot of off the field issues and the Browns finally decided to part ways. Their defense is also very well stacked with draft picks led by Myles Garrett and Nick Chubb. Browns fans have a lot more to look forward to considering the dark past and the 28 different quarterbacks they have had since 1998. Also, if they win they get free beer from Bud Light, as they have run the promo “When the Browns win, Cleveland wins.”
