Cleveland will do better this season

The Browns are going to do better this season. That is not a surprise. What could be for some is if they reach playoff type records.

Cleveland has quality players at certain positions but collectively, they are not a playoff team yet. Coming off of a winless campaign that is perfectly fine. Dorsey needs to add to the roster, which he did a great job of so far but more will be needed.

Being that Cleveland won just one game in two seasons, winning two games is the first goal but it does not stop there. Cleveland won’t win the Super Bowl but having the confidence they can win any and every game is a great initial stepping stone.

Cleveland will end up with six wins. Now six does not seem a lot but that is a 600% increase from 2017! They still will pick in the top 10 but at least it won’t be in the top five. David Njoku will be making major steps forward in year two and Antonio Callaway will be able to put the distractions behind him and prove that he can be a starting wideout.
