A Six Pack of Reasons why the Browns should win the AFC North this year!
1- On paper they have the most all-around talent of any team in the AFC North featuring Myles Garrett, Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and Denzel Ward to name a few Pro Bowl caliber players.
2- The Pittsburgh Steelers have to replace both Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell on offense this year, that won’t be easy to do and their secondary is still a huge question mark!
3- Even though he’s a rookie head coach, and has never been a head coach at any level, Freddie Kitchens is not Hue Jackson. So that’s a major addition by subtraction with no Hue Jackson from day one!
4- In a league that’s now all about scoring, offensively the Browns are as explosive as any team in the NFL with Baker Mayfield at quarterback, Nick Chubb at running back and Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry at wide receiver, with a suspended Kareem Hunt do back for game #9.
5- While the Steelers still have Ben Roethlisberger, the Browns have the second best quarterback in the AFC North in Baker Mayfield, ahead of Andy Dalton with the Bengals and Lamar Jackson with the Ravens.
6- Rookie second round pick, cornerback Greedy Williams, should team up from day one with Denzel Ward to give the Browns the best starting cover cornerback tandem in the AFC North, and in a predominately passing league, that is huge along with an outstanding pass rush led by Myles Garrett and newly acquired Olivier Vernon!
