Even the San Francisco 49ers Seem to maintain their Best start to This NFL season as they host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football, exclusively live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event.
Here is what to expect…
Have begun 3-0 for the first time since 1998. They overcame the Pittsburgh Steelers out time despite giving up five turnovers and are one of just two teams (along with all the New England Patriots) to really have a top-five offence and also top-five defence concerning lawn per game.
Following an off-season of expectation and hype, there were questions over the Browns after they dropped two of their first 3 matches, such as a 43-13 home blowout from the Tennessee Titans. They bounced back with an victory over AFC North rivals Baltimore Ravens last week to move top of this division for the first time.
The stats may not stand out (five touchdowns to four interceptions and also a middle-of-the-pack quarterback rating), but 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has performed nicely. He knows how to win. He is 11-2 in his 13 starts (nine to the 49ers and two for the New England Patriots) and may improve following a bye week.
High-end George Kittle was the 49ers weapon this season. He leads the team in receptions (17) and receiving yards (165), but has not scored a touchdown yet.
The 49ers have five first-round draft picks including 2019 second pick Nick Bosa, in their own defensive line rotation. The rookie appears to be fully fit after battling with an ankle injury to begin the season and leads the group with 17 pressures.
So too was QB Baker Mayfield, as the Browns were questioned at the first 3 weeks of this year. Since he threw for 342 yards and a touchdown but the goods were produced by the starter against the Ravens. Can he send against a 49ers defence that is likely to attract a lot of pressure?
Wide receiver Odell Beckham appeared frustrated last time out as he had been held to two catches for 20 yards. Browns head trainer Freddie Kitchens suggested he is being knocked off track on routes and also was requested after the game about the production of Beckham.
This is what I think is hard: for Odell not to have the ability to conduct a path without getting caught. I think that is exactly what frustrates him. I am not fearful of a corner being physical with Odell. Thats not what Im fearful of. I do not want people catching him down the field, though.
With fellow wide receiver Jarvis Landry having spent most of the week in the NFL Concussion Protocol, there could be much more pressure on Beckham to come up large, or even the Browns will seem to running back Nick Chubb, who has begun the season with 398 yards and four touchdowns in four matches.
