Week 3: at Indianapolis Colts

All RB vs IND

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Browns have had a tough start to the season running the ball, as Isaiah Crowell is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry and only saw 10 carries last week. The trend that we saw last season continues where the Browns give up on the run if it is not working early and they fall behind as evidenced by 74% of Crowell's carries coming in the first half while he has just seven carries in the second half over the course of the first two games. The Browns spent a significant amount of money in the offseason revamping their offensive line with J.C. Tretter and Kevin Zeitler and so far the offensive line has not lived up to that expectation as Zeitler and Tretter have both really struggled run-blocking so far this season. The Colts defense has looked significantly better against the run this season after they rebuilt their defensive line in the offseason led by Johnathan Hankins, Jabaal Sheard, and John Simon. The Colts shut-down Todd Gurley in week one holding him to just 2.1 yards per carry, and then last week faced a Cardinals team that featured newly re-signed Chris Johnson and held the Cardinals to just 83 yards on 25 carries. This is a defense that last season was one of the worst in the NFL against the run, and while they have not faced a prominent run defense they look significantly improved compared to last year.
