Bills vs Browns Preview
The Cleveland Browns are 2-6 and have been labeled by most as the most disappointing team this season after the hype that built to an unreasonable level in the preseason.
The Browns face an uphill battle to make the playoffs, but they’re not giving up just yet.
“I don’t see why we can’t be 10-6,” Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett said. “There’s eight more games and that’s eight more opportunities. I don’t care what the previous record has shown, I don’t care what they’ve said has happened before. You go out there with the right mindset and good amount of want to, you know what the hell you’re doing, you have your fundamentals down, you can go out there and play with anybody. Those three or four plays can go either way and you get those to swing your direction, we can make a run for it.”
A new piece for the Browns to play with will be running back Kareem Hunt, who is making his debut after an 8-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
“I had a lot of time to just sit, reflect, think,” Hunt said. “Look at the big picture, from the outside in. Just thinking before you act. Just keeping your emotions to yourself.
“It means so much to me. I just know I appreciate the fact I get to go out and do this every day. Now, it’s like ‘yeah, I get to go to work’.”
It’s not often that you see a 2-6 team favored against a 6-2 team, but that’s exactly the case when the Browns host the Bills this weekend. Cleveland is installed as an early 3-point favorite against the Bills with a low total of 40. But being doubted is nothing new for Buffalo.
“Until we can consistently win in this league, it’s always going to be doubters,” said linebacker Lorenzo Alexander. “Buffalo has a perception nationally of still being that same team that didn’t make the playoffs for 17 years. So until we actually do something, go to the playoffs consecutively, win a playoff game being able to make it to a championship and actually win a Super Bowl, people are always going to have that perspective. It’s up to us to change that.”
The Bills two losses came to the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots and they carry a defense that has top five in points against and defending the pass. However, Buffalo ranks 19th in defending the run, which may be the secret to the Browns success.
