The Cleveland Browns defense featuring Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin are going to have their hands full trying to contain Miami Q.B. Chad Henne this Sunday. Henne comes into the game with more rushing yards than Reggie Bush the Dolphins running back. So far this season Henne has rushed the ball 10 times for 85 yards and one touchdown for a 8.5 yard average. Letting this guy get lose could create a problem.
The Browns D’Qwell Jackson the linebacker who just loves to hit quarterbacks just may have the chance to do so if the Browns defensive front four cannot contain Henne. Needless to say the Browns could have their hands full trying to stop a team that hasn’t had a win all season coming to Cleveland looking to end their losing streak. The Miami Dolphins won more road games last year than they did playing at home. The Cleveland Browns cannot take this game lightly.
The key is going to be Browns Q.B. Colt McCoy being able to get some points on the board in the first quarter this week. The Browns offense has failed so far this season getting points in the first quarter. If McCoy can get his team into the end zone and get points on the board forcing the Dolphins to play from behind I think it would clearly help the Browns defense in putting pressure on Henne. The key could be the weather. Sunday looks like it will be sunny in Cleveland at the moment. If the rain continues to fall we could just see the Browns running attack featuring Peyton Hillis again.
I would expect the Browns to come out running the ball again this week, the Browns passing game still needs a little work. Switching to the west cost offense and Mohamed Massaquoi not being one hundred percent hasn’t helped so far this season. McCoy has a host of talent at the Cleveland Tight End position which he hasn’t utilized much so far. If the Browns can get the running game established and the tight end become a vital part of the game, Cleveland Could come out on top big in this one.
The Browns defense is still going to have to keep their guard up against Henne and I would look for Bush to try and put a spark in the Miami offense too. The key to victory for the Browns this week is their defense shutting down Henne and Reggie Bush…
