Cleveland Browns 2019 NFL outlook: Schedule, players to watch & more

September 5, 2019

The hype could not be bigger for the Cleveland Browns.

Baker Mayfield is entering his second season as the starter. He is coming off a historic rookie year, in which he threw 27 touchdown passes in just 14 games.

Now, with a talented receiving core around him led by the newly acquired Odell Beckham Jr., nothing is really stopping Mayfield from having another remarkable season.

While the offense is going to have a huge spotlight on them throughout the entire season, the Browns’ defense looks pretty good as well. Myles Garrett is coming off a career year with 13.5 sacks, while the team added Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon to the same line. Morgan Burnett also joins a solid secondary that may cause some problems for opposing defenses.

The Browns are in line to make a decent run in the regular season and even make a case for an AFC title.

Read below for more about the Browns heading into the 2019 season.
