Against the Cincinnati reserves, Cleveland managed to scrape out a victory by five points. Though they are not heading to the postseason, questions still loom about Baker Mayfield’s future. One thing that cannot be questioned is their running game.
D’Ernest Johnson’s 123 yards on 25 carries shows that the Cleveland offensive line is, without a doubt, the strength of their team. Additionally, eight different Browns receivers caught a pass. A wide receiver is a need for this team, as is a big body on the defensive line.
Kevin Stefanski’s run last season may have been inspiring, but this year’s edition of the Cleveland Browns has been a disappointment. Expect an aggressive pursuit of talent in the offseason to help recover from what all went wrong this season.
It was the Giants, yet Washington showed that with the proper quarterback play, they could be a legit contender, at least for the division. Oh, and they are about to have a new name, coming on February 02. They may also have a new quarterback to show for it.
At this point, Washington is locked into the No.11 overall pick in April, but there is a chance that Ron Rivera and Martin Mayhew may choose to move up the board and potentially grab a quarterback to help this team get over the top.
They have the defense, an excellent wide receiver duo, and a defense that primarily suffered due to the offense’s ineptitude. If Washington gets a quarterback, they should be feared.
