Week 2: vs Cleveland Browns

All RB vs CLE

FBG says: Tough matchup. Le'Veon Bell's first game was one that left some things to be desired as a running back. Bell averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and found little running room for most of the game as it appears that Bell and his new offensive line will take some time to get used to the timing that Bell relies on to hit the open holes. This is still a very talented unit led by former Pro Bowlers on the interior in Ryan Kalil and Kelechi Osemele. This was the first time the starting unit had ever played together due to injuries in the preseason and Kalil took the blame for this as he said their communication needs to improve and that falls on him as the center. He vowed to be more commanding to the offensive line as the team looks to continue to work together to have consistency in the rushing attack. The Browns run defense underwhelmed after coming into the season with high expectations. Derrick Henry ran for 84 yards and a touchdown in this game on 19 carries (4.4 YPC). This is a unit that came into the season with some of the biggest expectations in the NFL with the offseason acquisitions of Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson to pair with Larry Ogunjobi and Myles Garrett. Consistency was the key for the Browns as they did hold 11 of the 28 rush attempts to 2 yards or fewer, but there was very little middle ground as the Titans either ran for 7 or more yards or ran for nothing. Linebackers Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey have a lot of pressure on them as the Browns primarily played in the Nickel defense as their base defense. This is still an incredibly talented group but will need to improve their play going up against Le'Veon Bell.
