The Browns are coming off a solid defensive performance against Oakland in a game that many seem to forget that the Browns actually won. Cleveland is a tidy 3-1 at home this season, and a win against the Buccaneers will keep the Browns on the edge of the playoff race in the AFC North and set up an important game Thursday night against Cincinnati.
Before they can start focusing on the Bengals, however, the Browns need to take care of business against Tampa, a team they haven’t beaten since 1995 as the Buccaneers have won all three meetings since 1999.
Sunday’s game marks the final one in a three-game stretch of “easy” games for the Browns and the 1-6 Buccaneers are ranked last in the NFL in both total offense and total defense.
So, no worries, right?
