Key Matchups

Phillip Lindsay vs. Browns Front Seven

Lindsay had an off game against the 49ers. He is hoping to regain his form against a Browns defense that allows a lot of yards to running backs. This could not be a perfect game to get a 100-yard rushing effort.

Baker Mayfield vs. Von Miller

The number two overall pick from 2011 faces off against the number one pick from 2018. This should be entertaining. Mayfield has that ability to get away from the opposing defenders. Miller has the ability to bring down any quarterback.

It should be something worth watching. I am, for one, excited for this matchup.

X-Factor: Tim Patrick

In just a matter of six weeks, the Denver Broncos have lost both Demaryius Thomas (trade) and Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) which leaves them with wide outs that do not have a lot of regular season experience. While the Browns will be focusing on Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton, Tim Patrick should use this chance to shine.

There have been moments where he makes some spectacular plays. Here is hoping that he can make some more of them on Saturday night.
