Overall Impressions: Unless the Cleveland Browns drastically improve their offense and defense, it’s a clear Jet victory. There is plenty of blame to go around for the Browns’ offense, but you can not continue to play this way and expect to win football games. The advice I’d give is to lean on the parts of the offense that work the best in creating first-downs in the run game. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. If the Browns think airing it out will lead to victories, then the sacks and interceptions will continue to beat this team’s chances for any type of victory for the foreseeable future.
