21. Cleveland Browns
Recap: I know this is too high for the Browns and this may be the last time that I let my love for Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, Odell Beckham, and Nick Chubb stand in the way of dropping them way down the list.
However, I can’t expect them to be the team to beat the Patriots so how much was I really going to knock them for a loss anyway? They sacked Brady three times and after the 17-0 start it really felt like a more competitive game, so I guess I am giving them credit for being talented and not getting blown out?
Outlook: The Browns need to figure out what is wrong from the top-down because hurting Baker Mayfield’s development like this is criminal. Heads will role at the end of the season and I would bet that Baker is already sliding into Oklahoma Head Coach Lincoln Riley’s DMs talking about how much he misses him and what they could do together in Cleveland.
Until then though, the Browns need to show that their young pieces are worth building around and that last year wasn’t just a flash in the pan.
