Excessive expectations forward of the season agree with transposed into underwhelming results for the Browns and one in every of the NFL’s most prevailing storylines.
At 2-6, the Browns want a turnaround that would be borderline miraculous if the season is to be saved.
Bolt rusher Myles Garrett believes or no longer it’s doubtless.
“I don’t look why we can no longer be 10-6,” Garrett mentioned by Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. “There’s eight extra games and that is the reason eight extra alternatives. I don’t care what the previous memoir has proven, I don’t care what they’ve mentioned has came about earlier than. You sail accessible with the steady mindset and true quantity of desire to, you know what the hell you must perhaps well presumably very wisely be doing, you agree along with your fundamentals down, you can sail accessible and play with any one. Those three or four performs can sail either arrangement and you catch these to swing your path, we can produce a speed for it.”
Clearly, for that to occur, a victory agree with to be had on Sunday when the Browns host the Payments (6-2) in a contest that very grand pits one in every of the league’s ideal disappointments in opposition to one in every of its most improved squads. A blueprint terminate wouldn’t handiest assign Garrett’s lofty crew aspiration, it could perchance most likely well presumably bestow upon the Browns their first home blueprint terminate of the season following an 0-3 showing in Cleveland to this point.
Garrett, who leads the NFL with 11 tackles for a loss and is 2d with 10 sacks, and the Browns agree with already confronted league heavyweights reminiscent of the Rams, Ravens, 49ers, Seahawks and Patriots.
Whereas some other fight with Baltimore remains, a much less complex boulevard does lie forward as two games in opposition to the Bengals live, a tilt versus the Dolphins is on the horizon and two pivotal showdowns with the .500 Steelers are quiet to reach assist.
Winning eight in a row is hardly doubtless, however there could be no doubt no reason no longer to goal for it as the Browns absolute self assurance agree with the abilities to be a 10-blueprint terminate season. Or no longer it’s pulling out these victories that continues to be the yarn of the season.
