FBG says: Neutral matchup. Jared Goff rebounded after a rough first game against the Panthers as he completed 68% of his passes in the win against the Saints last week. This was a unit that seemed more comfortable last week as he only threw the ball 28 times instead of the 39 that he threw against the Panthers. When the Rams pass offense is the most effective is when they can establish the run and beat you with the play-action pass. Cooper Kupp seems to be back to 100% health after the ACL injury in 2018 as he is leading the team in targets with 19 and broke through with a 66-yard reception outrunning the Saints safeties. This continues to be one of the more dangerous passing units when it is firing on all cylinders.
The Browns secondary is one that on paper looks great, but has yet to really be tested this year facing Marcus Mariota and a combination of Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk last week. On the season, this is a unit that has allowed just 192 yards passing per game. At the corner position, this is the youngest unit in football led by 22-year-old Pro Bowler Denzel Ward and 21-year-old rookie Greedy Williams who has been excellent so far this season. This is a unit that is setup by the pass rush as Myles Garrett is on a mission to backup his statements of winning the Defensive Player of the Year as the defensive end has five sacks through two games. This pace won't continue as they were against backup left tackle Dennis Kelly and Kelvin Beachum who has seen better days. This week the matchup and key to this game will be Garrett against 37-year-old Andrew Whitworth who has made the Pro Bowl four times throughout his career.
