The Cleveland Browns haven’t lived up to the hype with a 2-4 start, and the road doesn’t get any easier as they head to Foxborough to take on the unbeaten Patriots on Sunday.

Browns vs Patriots Preview
The Browns have stumbled to a 2-4 start and quarterback Baker Mayfield seems to have regressed after a year where he set the rookie record for touchdown passes. The NFL’s leader in interceptions (11) now faces the NFL’s top unit in picking off opposing QBs. The Pats top-ranked defense has 18 interceptions this season and is coming off a throughly dominant 33-0 victory against the Jets a week ago where they picked off Sam Darnold four times.
“They try to get you to give the perfect look or perfect protection and they mix stuff up,” Mayfield said of New England’s defense. “They pressure you. They hit you up. If you are a young quarterback, you can see that.”
That being said, the Patriots aren’t taking the matchup against the mobile Mayfield lightly.
“The way Baker Mayfield plays, he’s able to escape the pocket, (and) still throw the ball on the money,” said Patriots safety Devin McCourty. “So, it’s an offense that you have to be ready to go (against).”
Odell Beckham Jr., Mayfield’s top option in the passing game, is a fan of the Patriots and head coach Bill Belichick. He talked about his admiration for what they do in New England this week.
“Going against Bill Belichick, it’s somebody I have a lot of much respect for. Probably talk to him before and after the game. He tells me the same thing every time: ‘I hope you enjoy today, because there’s not going to be much for you.’” That’s what he does every single time. He’s going to coach them up and they’re going to be ready and prepared.”
Belichick returned the compliment.
“He can score from anywhere on the field,” Belichick said of OBJ. “Running by you, making acrobatic catches or catching a short pass and breaking tackles and getting through the defense that way. So he’s another player that’s been moved into some different locations formationally, so you don’t always know exactly where he’s going to be and coach Kitchens and their offensive coaches do a great job of not only moving him around but moving other players offensively into different locations so you just defensively are challenged to, first of all, find where the great players are and then, secondly, to be able to defend them and it’s a big challenge.”
The Patriots are 12-point favorites as they seek their 20th consecutive home victory, with a total of 44.5 points expected.
