Murray’s best game yet
Many call Lamar Jackson the most electrifying quarterback in football. And if he has a few games like his Monday Night outing, he may hold onto that title. Unless Murray says, “not so fast.”
Murray had his worst game of the season against San Francisco, and he still finished with a 104.1 quarterback rating. Not bad, really. Anyway, Murray, even if he’s not 100 percent, he’s facing a banged-up Browns defense that just allowed 47 points a week ago.
Look for Murray to throw for over 400 yards against Cleveland defenders who, at most, may see themselves on a pitch count.
And if you don’t believe Murray is capable of doing this, the Browns defense has in the past given up a lot of yards to banged-up quarterbacks. We can’t forget about Ben Roethlisberger’s 2015 outing against Cleveland when he threw for 379 yards and three touchdowns while battling a left foot sprain.
No, these aren’t the 2015 Browns. Far from it. But with so many starters on the injury list, including three of their top four corners, plus Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney, expect Murray to find plenty of throwing lanes to gash the Cleveland defense in a bounceback performance from last week.
