Stack the offensive line
The Washington Football Team, as said before, has a bright future (if Dan Snyder can stay out of their way) and that’s because their defense is talented. Like past years any Browns fan can remember, the Washington Football Team is going to see its defense get tested a lot, and often. Theif offense is putrid, and there isn’t a single offensive playmaker to speak of with any sort of confidence. That means a lot of three-and-outs and a lot of time on the field for that defense.
Sure, that may give one the impression that they’ll get tired eventually, but why risk it? They’re good enough to give a team fits, so be prepared for that. The Browns would be wise to limit the number of route-runners they send out every play and have guys like Austin Hooper and Andy Janovich stay home on more plays than usual to help pick up the pressure.
Washington leads the league in sacks with 11 as a unit so far, and former second-overall draft pick Chase Young has already picked up 2.5 sacks on the year. He joins linebackers, Jonathan Bostic and Seth MacFarlane look-a-like Ryan Kerrigan as the only three players on the team with two or more sacks.
The Browns have had a banged-up offensive line, and Jedrick Wills has gotten beat by less talented players than Young. With the way the Washington Football Team do their stunts, it’s very possible that Wills may be overwhelmed.
Keeping more guys in on pass plays will, hopefully, help keep Baker Mayfield upright.
