The Houston Texans will copy Patrick Mahomes with the deep ball
In Week 1, the Browns gave up 210 yards on eight completions that were 10 yards or further downfield. Last week’s big-time catch by receiver Brandin Cooks showed what can be possible with the aerial attack from Offensive Coordinator Tim Kelly. There should be more of that coming in Week 2 as it’s definitely worth taking a shot early in the game when the Browns may not expect it.
There’s also the fact the Browns Defensive Coordinator, Joe Woods is facing pressure from the fans after failing to stop the Chiefs in what basically are back-to-back games. That’s rather odd considering how bad Cleveland’s defense really used to be.
So what will happen if the Texans go into halftime with the lead at FirstEnergy Stadium? Will there be boos from a crowd that expects more out of their team? Whether that happens or not, it’s all the more reason to keep throwing the ball deep against this Browns team.
As of this writing, Browns Safety Ronnie Harrison has not been suspended for his altercation on the sideline with a Chiefs coach. If Harrison does get suspended, then we all know where the biggest weak spot is on this defense. Especially when the backup, Grant Delpit missed the entire season last year due to injury.
