Defensive Struggles

The Browns defense sucks. I cannot put it much more bluntly than that.

Between the plethora of missed tackles the Browns have each game, non existent pass rush, broken defensive scheme Jim O’Neil throws out onto the field, and the injuries they’ve suffered, the defense has been horrible all year long.

The defense is probably the worst thing about the team this year, and it is a huge shame because of how much hype was put on this unit entering the season.

So far the Browns defense allows the second most rushing yards in the league with 135.6 yards/game. They also give up the third most total yards (400.8 yards/game) per game.

While the Bengals are not the greatest offense in the NFL, they are definitely better than the Matt Schaub led Ravens and are still a pretty solid all around offense.

The Bengals average 116 yards per game which is 10th best in the NFL. They also are tied for the 12th best passing offense with 260 yards/game.

The Bengals are not exactly lighting up the scoreboard each game. Yet, they have an offense that is good and balanced enough at each position to blow right pass the wet paper bag of a defense Cleveland has.
