Cleveland Browns NFL Betting

For the first time since 2002 and just the second time since their reincarnation in 1999, the Cleveland Browns made the NFL Playoffs. Now the question is, was it an aberration or a portent of things to come? Cleveland improved from a 6-10 mark in 2019 to 11-5 in 2020. Not only that, the Browns upset the Steelers at Pittsburgh in the wild card playoff round and then gave the Chiefs the scare of their lives at Kansas City before losing in the divisional round. Rookie head coach Kevin Stefanski was named AP, PFWA, and Sporting News NFL Coach of the Year, and justifiably so. But now comes the hard part. This year everyone will be taking the Browns seriously. They will get the full attention of all opponents. The ambushing is over.

Baker Mayfield had a breakthrough in his third season as a pro. Mayfield improved his QB rating from 78.8 in 2019 to 95.9 in 2020. Most impressive was Mayfield’s 26/8 TD/INT ratio in 2020 compared to 22/21 in 2019.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry was Mayfield’s top target in 2020. Mayfield caught 72 catches for 840 yards and three touchdowns. Landry has cleared the 1000-yard receiving mark three times since 2015.

Wide receiver Rashard Higgins added 37 catches in 13 games, good for 16.2 yards per reception and four touchdowns.

Just as important to the Browns offense is running back Nick Chubb, who cleared the 1000-yard rushing mark for the second consecutive season in 2020.

Defense remains the obstacle to the Browns being a serious championship contender. To their credit, Cleveland went heavy on defense at the 2021 NFL Draft. Cornerback Greg Newson of Northwestern was drafted in the first round, followed by linebacker Jeremiah Owusu Koramoah of Notre Dame in the second round.

One standout on the Cleveland defense in 2020 was defensive end Myles Garrett. In sum, Garrett compiled 12 sacks, 15 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, and two recoveries.

Second-year head coach Kevin Stefanski has a difficult rookie season to top. He arrived from the Minnesota Vikings, where he was a longtime assistant and eventually their offensive coordinator.

Since their second coming in 1999, the Cleveland Browns franchise has been a consistent disaster on the field, much to the frustration of their loyal fans, many of whom date back to their first incarnation. The name Cleveland Browns is synonymous with the Glory Years of pro football with names such a Paul Brown, Blanton Collier, Leroy Kelly, Paul Warfield, Gene Hickerson, Don Cockcroft, Milt Morin, and of course, Jim Brown making history and fans.
