Key #3: Attack through the Air
Baker Mayfield and Freddie Kitchens are clicking on their offensive scheme, which uses the ground threat of Nick Chubb to soften up the defense for penetration through the air. Baker’s arm is among the most accurate and deadly in football right now, as he has posted the 2nd highest passer rating in the league next to Drew Brees since Williams and Kitchens took over. However, this dominance has been recorded against sub-par teams and now the Browns will have to face a top-10 defense in the league. Execution on the ground will need to be pristine for there to be any chance of Baker making the throws Cleveland needs to capture their third straight victory.
