According to ESPN, they have the third toughest schedule remaining among all NFL teams.
Of their nine remaining games for 2022, the Browns face four teams who are at or above .500.
Their first game, which is against the Miami Dolphins, will be a tough start for them after their bye-week.
After that, the schedule doesn’t get any better, as they will face the Buffalo Bills.
However, can they overcome this challenge of tough teams?
Browns Can Only Overcome These Challenges With Major Improvements
With two top-tier NFL offenses waiting for them, the Browns defense must step up.
Myles Garrett already has shown this season that he can carry his weight on defense.
However, other players in the secondary need to step up and make major improvements.
Players like John Johnson and Greg Newsome need to do their part to stop the Dolphins and Bills’ passing game.
If they can’t, then the Browns won’t overcome these tough challenges ahead of them.
