3. Cleveland Browns DBs getting it tone, too

The Cleveland Browns head into the Chargers week with a secondary that is trending up, and that should be the case, considering the resources GM Andrew Berry poured into the unit over the offseason.

The Brown are without corner Greg Newsome (ankle), but got stellar production from Greedy Williams, who recorded his first career interception of Kirk Cousins and the Vikings in his first start since December of 2019.

Denzel Ward’s receiving some criticism, and the opening drive against Minnesota was more cause for concern, but the rest of the game, really, saw Ward ball out, stifling star Vikings’ receiver Adam Thielen on back-to-back plays late in the contest.

Safety Grant Delpit is also making good on the promise the Browns saw when they made him a second-round pick in 2020. He’s can defend the long ball and he can get in the box and pressure the quarterback. Hard to ask for more from your safety.
