Week 2: at New York Jets
FBG says: Good matchup. The Browns came out looking great on the first drive of the game as they quickly moved the ball down the field for a touchdown. Unfortunately, it was tough sledding for the remainder of the game as penalties, sacks, and forced turnovers late in the game led to a rough start for the Browns who have such high expectations. The offensive line remains the biggest issue in Cleveland as Baker Mayfield was under duress for most of the game and was sacked five times along with the teams 18 penalties. The team as a whole lacked discipline including Mayfield who forced three interceptions in a matter of four drives as he desperately tried to bring the team back. This unit is still incredibly talented and part of the offensive line issues may be resolved with Greg Robinson not being suspended after he was ejected last game. The Jets came out and started the game strong last week against the Bills with a shutout in the first half, but the secondary fell apart in the second half as Josh Allen and the Bills led a comeback through the air allowing 254 yards and a touchdown. The Bills took advantage of the Jets by utilizing the speed of John Brown and taking advantage of both Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts who struggled in this game. Johnson looked less than 100% as he was dealing with a hamstring issue for much of camp. The Jets have one of the best safety groups in the NFL in Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, but they need their corners to step up and if Johnson continues to be less than 100%, it could lead to a long day against Cleveland. The key to this matchup will be the pass rush as if the Browns offensive line can keep Leonard Williams away from Baker Mayfield, this Browns team should be able to have success through the air.

2019 Week 1 vs TEN (11 / 7 / 71 / 0 rec)
It was a tale of two halves for Beckham, who caught all but one of his passes in the first half of the contest. The Titans managed to find a way to limit him to just a 12-yard grab in the second half. His first catch as a Brown was a 16-yard gain where he showed his electric run after the catch ability to tack on some additional YAC. His next catch was a 12-yarder which was negated by an unnecessary roughness penalty. He went on to rack up an eight-yard and four-yard catch on the two ensuing first-quarter drives. He opened the second quarter with a 24-yard grab and then had another reception, this time an 18-yarder, negated by penalty. His only catch in the second half was a 12-yard reception in the third quarter. He came close to pulling in a decent gain in the fourth quarter but couldn't quite hang onto the ball along the left sideline. For what it is worth, Beckham looked just as explosive as usual, putting to rest any concerns over the training camp hip injury that held him out of all four preseason contests.
