I'll start: Chargers RB duo gashed the Bengals for about 145 yards at a clip of 5.0. They are most definitely NOT Chubb and Hunt. Bengals are just dreadful at stopping the run and Atkins is hurt.
Conversely, they couldn't run the ball against the Chargers and stopping the run is the only thing the Browns defense did right.
On offense, in addition to running the ball and stopping the run, partying like it's 1979, the OL did in fact protect Baker very well.
Finally: Rookie QB on a short week is historically a recipe for disaster. If they can't run, he's gotta throw... and Browns should feast. If they don't? Well, that's bad.
Generally speaking, things align for the Browns to win a game without really getting everything right in their passing game, which is unrealistic on such a short turnaround. They should be able to play a safe gameplan and stick to it like they couldn't against the Ravens. No, I don't damn a coach for trying to get aggressive with the pass when down 24-6.
Finally: Sendejo was a train wreck. It's on the table that flipping him for Harrison could be a pretty huge upgrade, particularly covering safeties. Get Malcolm or Tae in more on packages makes sense too.
