TE David Njoku

Landry will be the top target for the Browns today, but he cannot be the only pass-catcher to make plays for Baker. Mayfield has liked targeting the tight ends this season and that should not change in this game. The Steelers have been stingy against tight ends, only allowing two touchdowns all season. They have also allowed an average of under 40 yards per game. Despite this, TE Harrison Bryant recently tested positive for COVID-19, so he will not play in this big game. That leaves TE Austin Hooper and David Njoku to man the tight end spots. While Hooper has been the go-to this season and Njoku has not lived up to his first-round draft capital, this one will come down to who will make a play. Njoku has the better athletic profile and will receive more snaps in Bryant’s absence. Therefore, Njoku is more likely to make that big play to win the game.
