NFL Week 3: Los Angeles Rams vs Cleveland Browns Live Stream
On Sunday night, the Browns face a real test.
It’s tempting to write off the Cleveland Browns Week 1 loss as a fluke after the team’s stronger Week 2. If this Browns team can keep it going against a dominant Los Angeles Rams squad, it would go a long way toward proving this team can contend in the AFC North.
After a shaky start, the Browns looked like the team they were expected to be against a depleted Jets squad last week. Mayfield threw for over 300 yards. Stud pass catcher Odell Beckham Jr. went for 161 yards and a touchdown. Running back Nick Chubb added a TD of his own. On defense, Myles Garrett notched 3 sacks. All was right with the world.
This was how it was supposed to go. It was also a sharp contrast to Week 1, when Mayfield threw three picks and the team lost by 30.
Where the road has been bumpy for Cleveland, the Rams are rolling. Los Angeles stomped the Saints last week after an injured Drew Brees left the game.
There have been some quibbles with this Rams squad. It has taken a while for the offense to get going thanks to weak offensive line play. The special teams unit has had some shaky moments early on as well.
But, none of that matters once this Rams team starts firing on all cylinders, and that’s what usually happens. The receivers went crazy last week, led by a 120-yard day from Cooper Kupp. The team added over 100 yards on the ground. And the defense, led by a dominant Aaron Donald, did their job.
It would be a shocker if the Browns upset the Rams this week, but if they hold their own in a narrow loss, Cleveland fans should still be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
