The Cleveland Browns look to get back to their winning ways as they return home against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6. Former Oklahoma Sooner teammates, and back to back Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray get another chance to play each other in the NFL.
The two matched up in 2019 with the Cardinals getting a victory late in the season in Arizona. In that game, Mayfield threw for 247 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while Murray, a rookie in 2019, threw 219 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Coming to Cleveland without their head coach and top edge defender, Arizona is looking to keep their undefeated season going.
The two quarterbacks may have more than the opposing defenses. The weather in Cleveland is supposed to be sunny and dry but with a chance for strong winds:
CLE is the game to watch, with near 20mph winds sustained and gusts close to 30.
We saw some very windy games in CLE last year, but this is NOT to that level. Still, some long throws/FG’s will be impacted.
Total has dropped 4.5, I don’t think there’s value on the under. pic.twitter.com/dGKAjThQnp

As noted in the tweet, the wind won’t be as bad as Browns games last year where throwing the ball was very limited. That doesn’t mean the wind won’t impact the game.
