NFL Scouts Talk Anonymously About AFC North Teams

By Athlon Sports, 11 months 1 week ago
Pittsburgh won a second straight AFC North title last season and the Steelers enter 2018 as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. While most of the attention focuses on the offense, especially in regards to running back Le'Veon Bell's contract situation, how the defense fares for a full season without linebacker Ryan Shazier will be critical to the team's success.   Baltimore...

Cleveland Browns 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 1 week ago
The Browns bottomed out last season, following up a 1-15 season by going winless. They kept Hue Jackson as head coach but put John Dorsey in charge of personnel last December, and there will be greater than 50 percent roster turnover by the time the season begins.   Whether the Browns can actually turn things around remains to be seen. They have a new quarterback for the moment in Tyrod...

By Aaron Tallent, 1 year 6 months ago
Jon Gruden is returning to the Oakland Raiders and to coaching in the NFL after a decade-long absence, including eight-plus years as the color analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”   Whether or not Gruden will be able to pick up right where he left off in 2008 is still to be determined. Some coaches flop on their return to coaching, while others go on to reach...

Cleveland Browns vs. Los Angeles Chargers Preview and Prediction

By Rob McVey, 1 year 7 months ago
The Cleveland Browns will head west to take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. A trip that should conjure up one of the fondest memories of the Hue Jackson era for the Browns — last season’s 20-17 victory over the Chargers on Christmas Eve. In fact, it may be the only fond memory, serving as Cleveland’s only win in 27 games under Jackson. That win also saved the...

For the second straight week the scene will be Twickenham Stadium in London in front of 70,0000-plus fans. The story of this one is two teams heading in different directions.

NFL Scouts Talk Anonymously About AFC North Teams

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 11 months ago
After starting the season 4-5, Pittsburgh caught fire in the middle of November and won its final seven regular season games to capture the AFC North title. With its trio of Killer Bs (Ben Roethlisberger, LeVeon Bell, Antonio Brown) leading the way, it will be tough for another team to overtake the Steelers anytime soon.   Baltimore, who finished 8-8 in 2016, will feature a lightning-fast...

Cleveland Browns 2017 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 2 years 6 days ago
The Browns bottomed out last season, going 1-15 and again failing to answer their lingering quarterback question. But the case could be made that the team’s 2016 teardown was a necessary step. Also, it’s difficult to be much worse in any area than the Browns were last season, so they head to 2017 with at least some optimism and a roster that has a chance to be much improved....

By John La Fleur, 2 years 3 weeks ago
Despite the NFL’s undisputed status as the most dominant professional sports league, it needs some improvement. A few lingering issues still require some resolution. In particular, scheduling, both during the regular season and postseason should be changed. I offer five proposals for changes and explanations for why they are essential.   1.

Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 2 years 8 months ago
The Cleveland Browns are pretty much what most observers expected this season – the worst team in the NFL. When they traded down in the draft from No. 2 to No. 15, leaving the best quarterbacks for other teams, the message was clear. They were stockpiling picks and rebuilding.   But with Robert Griffin III and veteran Josh McCown, there was a sense that they would be competent at...
