Washington Football Team Keys to Victory:


It is built around a great defensive line, and it will need to play like one to stop the Browns balanced offensive attack. Rookie DE Chase Young and veteran edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan key a fearsome pass rush that needs to keep Browns QB Baker Mayfield uncomfortable. Young CB Jimmy Moreland and his secondary mates will need to be sharp and make plays on the ball. On offense, establishing the run with the RB duo of Peyton Barber and rookie Antonio Gibson can slow down the Browns' own strong pass rush.







Browns Keys to Victory:





The RB combination of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt has been dynamic. Mayfield has had great pass protection from an overhauled offensive line featuring rookie LT Jedrick Wills, and that will need to continue against a great Washington defensive front. DE Myles Garrett, DT Sheldon Richardson and the Browns defensive line must control the line of scrimmage and not let the Washington run game get on track. Cleveland's middle-of-field defense behind the line has been a weakness. Protecting the LBs and safeties from having to do too much is paramount.




Matchup to watch according to USA Today Sports Weekly:


Browns LT Jedrick Wills vs. Washington's DE Chase Young

 

The two top-10 draft picks in '20 will often square off against each other. Both have impressed in their early action. The winner of the matchup will help determine how well the Browns offense performs.


Matchup to watch according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:

 

Browns  Secondary vs. Washington WR


The Browns run defense has been good this year.  The Browns need to be able to stop the pass.  They go against some good receivers this week in Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims.  Hopefully Greedy Williams and Kevin Johnson will come back this week to help with the pass defense.  


Who will win and why according to USA Today Sports Weekly:


The Browns should be rested after playing Thursday.  The bonus time off should allow Cleveland to survive.

 

BROWNS-23  WASHINGTON-17

 

Who will win and why according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:


The Browns continue to run the ball and give Baker Mayfield time to throw.  The return of some key defensive players helps the defense.

 

BROWNS-30   WASHINGTON-20



Who will win according to Browns Backers of North Jersey President Steve Stavrenos:


BROWNS-35  WASHINGTON-24



2020 SEASON STANDINGS:

USA TODAY SPORTS WEEKLY: 2-0
BROWNS BACKERS OF NORTH JERSEY: 1-1
BROWNS BACKERS OF NORTH JERSEY PRESIDENT STEVE STAVRENOS: 1-1
