Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Browns passing offense while statistically looked great on Monday Night struggled for a large majority of this game. Baker Mayfield was under constant duress as he was sacked three times and held onto the ball for far too long as the Jets defense confused him from time to time. Odell Beckham continues to show why he is one of the top receivers in the NFL as he broke an 89-yard touchdown on a quick slant that greatly inflated the Browns passing numbers as well as a tremendous one-handed catch in the first quarter along the sidelines. The Browns got some good news with Rashard Higgins returning to practice after missing the game against the Jets but will be without tight end David Njoku who suffered a broken wrist. The offensive line continues to be an issue for the Browns as Greg Robinson is not playing at nearly the level that he did last season after being ejected in Week 1 and Kendall Lamm remains doubtful for this game with a knee injury. This is a unit that is going to rely on their offensive line play to throw the deep passes and going up against Aaron Donald and crew will be a major test for the Browns this week. The Rams defensive line thoroughly dominated the Saints this past week as Drew Brees suffered a thumb injury while under pressure from Aaron Donald. This remains a team that is set up to shut-down your passing attack with outside corners Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and with Nickell Robey-Coleman out of the slot. This is a unit that through two weeks have not allowed a touchdown so far this season to Cam Newton and the combination of Drew Brees and Teddy Bridgewater. The Browns will likely get to pick their matchups in this one as they move Odell Beckham into all positions onto the field while the Rams typically do not move their corners which can lead to mismatches as the Saints took advantage of with Michael Thomas catching 10 passes last week. Expect the Browns to test the 33-year old Talib in whether he can keep up with Beckham's speed.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)

Higgins had a big role on the game-opening touchdown drive and then wasn't heard from again. The receiver pulled in an 11-yard reception on the second play of the game and then caught a 35-yard pass from Baker Mayfield that brought the Browns down to the Tennessee four-yard line. After the first drive, Mayfield only looked his way once more in what wound up being an incomplete pass. He missed time with an ankle injury.
