Cleveland Browns vs San Diego Chargers

What a swing for a fence this text have to be, huh? The winless Cleveland Browns are unlikely to win a recreation? The Browns are unlikely to beat a gifted, streaking Los Angeles Chargers crew led by Philip Rivers?
Loopy discuss, proper?
Clearly, the Browns are large underdogs at the moment on the highway, some betting websites have them as two-touchdown canines. That does not imply they don't have any likelihood, as Bob Evans laid out for all of you yesterday right here.
It will even be simple to write down this text simply centered on what the Browns have been dangerous at or, like some native media, simply say the Browns are dangerous as a result of they're winless. That round reasoning does not work for me. The roster is extra gifted, extra loaded with younger gamers and has extra upside than any up to now 10+ years.
So, whereas this text goes to give attention to causes a win at the moment is hard, it isn't going to be one to beat down the Browns as a nasty crew.
Not A Lure Sport
The primary purpose at the moment's recreation is unlikely to be a shock victory for the Browns is that they don't have a superb likelihood at catching the Chargers in a entice recreation. Usually, entice video games come after large wins or earlier than a giant matchup. A superb crew, both coming off the excessive of a giant win or wanting ahead to a troublesome matchup, overlooks a nasty crew.
The Chargers, after a really gradual begin, are coming off an enormous beatdown of the Dallas Cowboys final week and have a extra essential recreation subsequent week towards Washington.
The issue for the Browns is that the Chargers fell to the Browns final yr and are unlikely to fall sufferer to the lowly Browns once more.
Sport Significance
Whereas all video games are essential, the Chargers cost to the Playoffs, after beginning the yr zero - four, places a ton of worth on at the moment's recreation. The Chargers upswing coincides with the KC Chiefs fall from grace. The Chargers now stand one recreation behind the Chiefs for the lead within the AFC West.
This late within the season, this near a Playoff spot, places a variety of worth on every recreation for LA and none will be ignored.
Energy Vs. Weak point
Whereas Philip Rivers is the face of the Chargers, those that observe the league know that Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are the id of the crew. These two have destroyed groups in a ton of how. They each are nice go rushers however also can defend the run recreation on the skin.
The Chargers have been inventive in how they've lined up their two studs as nicely. Whereas they're most frequently discovered reverse of one another, LA has positioned them on the identical facet of the protection to trigger every kind of havoc for offenses.
That power shall be matched up towards the weak point of the Browns offensive line. With out Joe Thomas, the Browns offensive tackles of Spencer Drango and Shon Coleman have struggled. Drango has very gradual ft whereas Coleman has been inconsistent in go safety. Ingram's velocity will make Drango's life depressing and Bosa's versatile rush set will hold Coleman off steadiness all recreation.
Expertise On All Ranges
Lastly, the Chargers are gifted on all ranges, each side of the ball. For a struggling crew to beat a superb crew they usually must give attention to taking one thing away. Towards the Jaguars, the Browns tried to give attention to taking away the run recreation of the offense to present them an opportunity.
The Browns have little or no hope of being profitable with this tactic towards the Chargers. Their protection, beginning with Ingram and Bosa, has Denzel Perryman enjoying very nicely on the second degree and Casey Hayward (enjoying regardless of nice household tragedy) and Tre Boston enjoying nice within the secondary.
On offense, Rivers leads a various passing assault with Keenan AllenAntonio Gates and Hunter Henry. Melvin Gordon leads a dashing assault with an offensive line that has been a lot improved.
The Browns simply do not have the flexibility to load up on one a part of the Chargers offense or give attention to a sure weaker a part of their protection so as to attempt to pull off a victory.

Because the Browns Optimist, I'm nonetheless longing for a victory at the momentJosh GordonCorey ColemanDuke JohnsonDavid Njoku and Seth DeValve is a ton of offensive expertise for Deshone Kizer. Perhaps Hue Jackson focuses on their strengths extra at the moment and covers for the weaknesses at OT.
Perhaps Myles Garrett can proceed to attract double and triple groups, permitting the remainder of the entrance 7 to get after Rivers. Perhaps Jabrill Peppers continues to develop in his position and Rivers takes the crew's good secondary without any consideration and throws them a pair INTs.
I simply do not see it for the explanations famous above.
