Week 15 vs. the Cleveland Browns
The Giants vs. the Browns is an intriguing match-up for really one main reason; Odell Beckham Jr. will face off against the Giants for the first time since being traded.
Obviously, there are some other players involved in that trade, including Jabrill Peppers, but OBJ is the big name in this case.
However, aside from some revenge games, this is an intriguing game for a variety of reasons. The Browns went into the 2019 season with Super Bowl aspirations, and yet they finished 6-10 and failed to make the playoffs.
In 2020 they will enter the season with hopes of at least making the playoffs now that there is an extra wild card spot.
As for facing off against the Giants, this is definitely a winnable game for Big Blue, but this can also be a game that they lose by a wide margin. If 2019 is any indication of who the Browns are in 2020, they’re a highly inconsistent team that could beat the best team in the league one week and lose to the worst team the next week.
That being said, the Giants really just have to stick to their game plan and play Giants football. There’s no denying that the Browns have a plethora of weapons on offense, but the question is, will they use them properly?
With Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Kareem Hunt, Nick Chubb, and Baker Mayfield on offense, plus the new addition of Austin Hooper, the Browns could be very good, but they have to use them right to reach their potential.
Not only do they have a ton of weapons on offense, but they also have some guys on defense who will strike fear in opposing offenses, guys like Myles Garrett.
Another thing that the Giants will use to their advantage for this game is their new tight ends coach, Freddie Kitchens. Kitchens spent 2019 as the Browns head coach and was their offensive coordinator before that.
This helps the Giants because it’ll allow them to form a better game plan against the Browns seeing Kitchens likely knows a great deal about them.
