THE 0-7 Browns head east this weekend where they’ll meet the 5-2 Minnesota Vikings, also heading east. Both sides playing at Twickenham, with much different aspirations.
Many have questioned Hue Jackson’s decision to pull Kizer from their loss against the Titans on Sunday, saying it won’t help his confidence or growth, but I say let him play.
No matter who starts under centre for the Browns on Sunday, they’ll have to be ready for a fierce defence who have at least 4 sacks over the last two weeks, and aren’t allowing many points. Not good when you’re the worst scoring offence in the league and don’t trust in your rookie QB.
Next game is another mismatch when the 49ers travel to the red hot Eagles with Carson Went playing at an MVP level in his second season. Fresh off the back of a convincing performance at home last night against the Redskins, they shouldn’t find too many issues against a 49ers side who were steamrolled by Dallas at home on Sunday. Philly should take a leaf out of Dallas’ book and pound the ball as the 49ers have been woeful at stopping the run this season, while Philly are the leagues best rush defence, so outside of Carlos Hyde, the 49ers don’t have much to throw at Philly. CJ Bethard could take a beating here.
*UPDATE: Double lands with relative ease. Acca goes down with a low scorer in Tampa. Still have the Steelers to come later, and Le’Veon Bell has taken to twitter this afternoon, giving Bengals rb Joe Mixon grief over trying to be him.
Bell has three games with 30 rushes in October. Bell can become the first player in NFL history with four such games on the same calendar page tonight.Bell has three games with 30 rushes in October. The Lions gave up 189 yards on 35 carries to New Orleans before their bye week. They’ll likely try and load the box, but you can’t leave Antonio Brown on single coverage, which is why the Steelers are so hard to match up against.
Expect Bell to get the workload again tonight.
