The Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins don’t get together much but two of the most storied franchises in the NFL have to be hoping that this week’s matchup will help them get back to the place where they were not long ago. The Browns are sitting winless at 0-3 while the Redskins finally won their first game of the season last week. This is a big test for both teams and one where both teams truly believe that they can win. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Browns lost 30-24 on the road against the Miami Dolphins and are could be starting another new quarterback this week. Cody Kessler started last week and has 244 passing yards for the season. Terrelle Pryor even got some time at quarterback and completed three of his five passes while also leading the team in receptions and yards with 14 catches for 244 yards. Isaiah Crowell has been a nice change of pace for Cleveland with 274 rushing yards and two touchdowns. The defense must be better though starting this week and can’t allow big chunks of yardage to be gained against them.
The Redskins got by the New York Giants 29-27 for their first win of the year. Kirk Cousins is throwing the ball around a ton with 989 yards through the air over three games but has just three touchdowns and three interceptions. DeSean Jackson leads the team with 14 catches for 238 yards but Cousins has targeted Jackson, Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder each 24 times this year. Matt Jones is getting better in the ground game with 150 yards on the ground and a touchdown but needs to keep improving. The defense should have a field day with Kessler but have to watch out for Pryor’s triple-threat ability.
