The Cleveland Browns storm into the Twin Cities for a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Fresh off a big victory over the Seattle Seahawks, the home team is looking to right their record at 2 – 2.
The visitors are coming off two straight victories after a difficult loss in Week 1 to the Kansas City Chiefs. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski returns to the city where he cut his coaching teeth for over a decade before taking on the head job in Cleveland.
With the Browns defense slowing down the Vikings attack, the team took over with less than a minute left in the 1st half. A great run by Kareem Hunt opened up the opportunity for more points before halftime.
In came Chase McLaughlin who has been perfect this year. He nailed this long field goal:

Cleveland takes an 11 – 7 lead going into halftime and will receive the second-half kick. With Baker Mayfield struggling greatly, can the offense get going and extend the lead? Can the defense continue to shut down the Vikings as they have the last three possessions?
