5. Stopping run, leaves focus on Murray

Cleveland should have success in stopping the rush, with running backs James Conner and Chase Edmonds running inefficiently. They duo combined for 20 touches last week against the 49ers and managed just 61 total yards.

Conner was terrible, rushing 10 times for 29 yards.

In eliminating the rushing threat, the Browns can’t worry about the Cardinals’ most dangerous element: Kyler Murray scrambling.

It was hard to watch Justin Herbert running for touchdowns last week, but because it happened, I anticipate Cleveland defensive coordinator will do a better job of trying to contain Murray. After all, scrambling and making plays is his calling card.

The Browns are going to get pressure with Myles Garrett, Takk McKinley and Malik McDowell. Hopefully, Jadeveon Clowney returns from his elbow injury.

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah will also be one to watch because he’s Cleveland’s fastest linebacker. someone’s got to be there to clean up when Murray gets a way, and JOK is who I’d want closing in on Murray.
