The Browns bounced back with another win to stay in the AFC North race

Consistency is something Cleveland has not been able to find in recent decades. That has led to constant change from their players to coaches and leadership within the franchise. That has seemed to slow down in the past couple of years as the team has found ways to stay competitive in a tough division. They are starting off strong despite some setbacks.

The old Browns would have struggled against the Titans this past week after a tough road loss against the Steelers a week prior. Instead, they found a way to blow out the visiting Titans and put themselves back into the playoff conversation. It has either been a tough loss or a blowout victory for the Browns during this early portion of their schedule.

Their defense has been great thus far and has not allowed a touchdown yet this season. That will be put to the ultimate test as they get into the arena and host the Baltimore Ravens. It is going to be a fight and Lamar Jackson has started off the season strong with a clean bill of health. The Ravens are suffering from a large margin of injuries at key positions.

Cleveland should be able to cause enough issues against Jackson to stay in the game. Deshaun Watson played his best game of the season last week, other than an ugly play or two. If he can keep that up, then this Browns squad will push for the division crown. They have yet to accomplish that in recent history so everyone will neglect giving them the benefit of the doubt.
