The Cleveland Browns returned home to square off against the Seattle Seahawks in a Week 6 match up. After a four game losing streak the Browns looked to get back into the win column and make the Dawg Pound proud.
The Browns first offensive drive started off on the wrong foot as most of their games have this season. Baker Mayfield threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown (yikes). Browns fans and players were thinking to themselves, “Oh boy, here we go again.” However, the Browns did not give up. After giving up the pick six the Browns offense was hungry for another chance, and they did not disappoint. The Browns went into the half only trailing by a measly seven points with a 17-10 score (huge upgrade from previous weeks).
The Browns defense was unstoppable only allowing 56 total rushing yards the entire game, and sacking Russell Wilson 7 times. Their success kept them in the game for the long run, and the Browns offense fed off of their momentum. Baker Mayfield and the rest of the Browns offense put up a total of 31 points at the end of four quarters, however the game was still tied. As a result the teams headed to the ever so exciting overtime, where the Seahawks received the ball first.
The Browns defense did not disappoint as they held the Seahawks offense to a four and out, resulting in the Browns offense to take the field. After a few little rushes, running back Nick Chubb lined up for what became the play of the game. Chubb received a pitch to the right of the field, and put his skills to the test. Avoiding tackles left and right, breaking free sprinting down the field for a forty plus yard touchdown! The Browns win, the Browns win!!
The Browns victory improves their record to 2-4, and Chubb had one of his best weeks so far totaling 3 touchdowns on the ground. Chubb’s success is great news for the Browns, since back up running back Kareem Hunt contract negotiations have hit a road block in recent weeks.
Per sources, Kareem Hunt has been quoted saying, “I’m just not interested in signing with you guys.” As General Manager, I am upset he feels this way because he is a huge part of our team, and we feed off of his success. In the upcoming weeks, we will continue to try to make a deal work, but for now we have placed Hunt on the trade block and will listen to any offers sent our way.
Even though there has been some drama with contract negotiations, the biggest thing to take away from Week 6 was the Browns victory against the Seahawks. The Browns get a week off as it’s their bye week, but in two weeks we see them return against the New England Patriots owned by your rankKing, Austin Moorhead.
