Sunday will be the Cleveland Browns‘ opportunity to improve to 3-1 on the season when they travel south to take on the Atlanta Falcons.
The Falcons have a 1-2 record, but that may be a bit deceiving, as they have a few players who are capable of allowing them to steal this game from Cleveland.
That is especially true when one considers that the team is banged up.
Its two starting defensive ends, Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney, are questionable for Sunday, as Garrett is still recovering from the minor injuries he suffered in a vehicle crash earlier this week, while Clowney is dealing with an ankle injury that caused him to miss last week’s tilt with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Kevin Stefanski says Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney are questionable Sunday. Neither were seen on practice field today.

Meanwhile, linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, tight end David Njoku and offensive linemen Joel Bitonio and Jack Conklin were limited participants in practice on Friday.
The Browns’ schedule will start getting a lot tougher next week when they will host the limping but very talented Los Angeles Chargers.
It is imperative they rack up as many wins as they can right now before they start to face title contenders week after week.

Points Of Emphasis
Running back Nick Chubb has been a monster so far this season, as he has accumulated 341 yards, four touchdowns and 5.5 yards per rushing attempt in the first three games of the schedule.

Overall, Cleveland is second in the NFL in rushing touchdowns and first in total rushing yards.
On the other side, the Falcons’ running back, Cordarrelle Patterson, a former wide receiver, is having a breakout season with 302 yards and two touchdowns.
The Browns’ front seven will need to shut down the middle and not allow to find room running the ball to the outside, especially if Garret and/or Clowney are unable to suit up.
This could be an old-fashioned ground and pound contest, the type that the Browns are well-suited to thrive in.
