The Cleveland Browns face the Buffalo Bills Sunday at home and face a quarterback that they could have drafted in Josh Allen.
This is an all too familiar situation. Cleveland will face Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. If history tells us anything, it is that Allen will lead the Bills to victory.
It’s a tale as old as time. The Cleveland Browns take a quarterback in the draft and the one they do not pick comes back and beats them in spectacular fashion. Sometimes it’s the first NFL game of the season (Carson Wentz in 2016). Other times it is later in the year (Lamar Jackson in 2018). Then there is absolute dominance over the course of a career (Ben Roethlisberger). The only thing about the opposing quarterback in this situation is that the Browns did not draft him. Once they have to face Cleveland they seem to get super powers and play at a level that many do not see coming.
Cleveland’s defense struggles against mobile quarterbacks. This will be no different this Sunday when facing Josh Allen.
The fact that Baker Mayfield has been struggling and things are unraveling as each week passes only sets this up even more. Mayfield went from feeling dangerous to playing disastrous and got dunked on by Macaulay Culkin on twitter earlier this week. All of this points to Josh Allen having a hell of game Sunday.
It almost appears to be destiny that Josh Allen has the opportunity to put the proverbial nail in the coffin of and finally bury the corpse of what has been the 2019 Browns season.
