In Joe Burrow‘s NFL debut, he had some great moments, but still looked like a rookie, which is to be expected. We must remember that he did not get the luxury of having a preseason, so he looked strong and poised, with all things considered. He even led his team on a game-winning drive, but the touchdown was called back due to penalty. Then Bengals kicker Randy Bullock missed the game-tying kick. In the end, this Bengals team looked much better than expected, and they have a talented rookie quarterback despite the result not being a surprise.
Speaking of what we expected, the Browns lost. Not only did they lose, they got dominated, failing to score after the first quarter. The defense was terrific against the run, holding the Ravens to 107 rushing yards. However, the training camp injuries in the secondary were prevalent, and this team could struggle to stop the pass all season long.
Offensively, it’s a new season, but same story. The Browns have play makers all over the field. However, Baker Mayfield struggled, completing just 21-of-39 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb found a lot of success in the running game, averaging 5.5 and 6.0 yards per carry, respectively. However, game flow led to a more pass-heavy attack. This team could thrive when playing with a lead, but the defense needs to be better in order for them to do that.
