The Browns In Week 15

The Browns struggled in Seattle. Other than a touchdown on their opening drive from quarterback Johnny Manziel to tight end Gary Barnidge, there was not much to cheer about last Sunday in the 30-13 rout.

Protection issues were evident as the Seahawks blew up the middle of the offensive line, as they rushed Manziel often throughout the game. Unfortunately, that was only the start of it.

Key drops by wide receivers, the absence of the running game, an ill-advised interception late and no defense against the run were problems. Not to mention the lack of coverage on Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin and the inability to get to Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson all led to the big loss on Sunday.

Long story short, if the Browns do not correct those issues this weekend, they will meet a similar fate against the Chiefs. As stated before, the Chiefs have a similar structure to the Seahawks, so they will likely look to take advantage in all the same areas the Seahawks managed to dominate in.

With offensive guard John Greco out due to injury and defensive end Armonty Bryant inactive following an arrest, the play along both lines will be affected.
