The Cleveland Browns dominated the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The 20 point victory doesn’t do enough justice to how much the home team controlled the game. Unfortunately, timely miscues on fourth downs, Jedrick Wills injury and a few errant throws by Baker Mayfield kept the score closer than it should have been.
The Browns moved to 2 – 1 on the young season with an important game in Minnesota this week for head coach Kevin Stefanski. Returning to the team he spent over a decade with, Stefanski will have a little extra motivation. So will the Vikings, facing their former offensive coordinator.
Not surprisingly, Cleveland’s performances graded pretty well per Pro Football Focus. Not everyone had a great day, which we will get to, but the strong performances at the top graded quite high.
