3. Cleveland Browns weapons run aplenty
The Cleveland Browns will lean heavily on Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but they’re not the only weapons Mayfield will have to lean on come game day.
David Njoku played the game of his life and offers incredibly opposites for yards after the catch. Austin Hooper doesn’t run the ball as well as Njoku after the catch, but he’s still a nice target for Mayfield.
Rashard Higgins also continues to display his chemistry with Mayfield. He’s never going to make your eyes pop by beating OBJ in a 100-yard dash, but unlike Beckham, Higgins produces. He just seems to get open, sitting in a window and catching a pass that usually goes for a first down. Higgins is averaging 13.0 yard per reception.
Browns fans also got more of a look at Donovan Peoples-Jones against the Chargers. The second-year wideout had his best game of the season, pulling in five catches for 70 yards.
And then there’s Beckham. I’m not counting on anything, but you get the feeling Kevin Stefanski will try and dial up something for him after he relegated to ghost duty against LA.
Remember the Dallas game a season ago? Perhaps Beckham has that type of game here.
