1. Speed matters
Baltimore really struggled with Kansas City’s speed on offense as the Chiefs were able to score big yardage when their players got the ball in the open field. Additionally, their backs got some good chunks of yardage taking in short passes.
This helps with where the Browns are offensively. Mayfield has really struggled when Kitchens tries to go deep, so it behooves the Browns to try and score some haymakers by keeping it simple.
That means giving the ball to Nick Chubb a lot. Additionally, this might be the game to get those bubble screens out to Odell Beckham Jr. Ideally, the Ravens will eventually bit and then Kitchens can dial up a slant where Beckham can catch the ball between the has and the numbers. This is the type of play that turned into an 89-yard touchdown against the Jets, and Mayfield only had to throw the ball 10 yards.
When it comes to speed, also consider the speed of the game. Perhaps Kitchens has seen enough and realizes he’s got to simply things and move the offense with more tempo. When the Browns have gone no-huddle, the offense seems to make sense.
Chubb runs and screens, slants to to OBJ, getting to the line and doing it again, it could doom Baltimore’s defense.
