In 2020 fashion, the AFC North is surprising us all this season. The Pittsburgh Steelers remain the only undefeated team in the league and the Cleveland Browns are off to a 9-3 start for the first time since 1994. While MVP Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are playing below expectations this year.
The Browns are currently the No. 5 seed in conference standings and they have the best record of the non-division leaders in the conference. They haven’t been this good since Bill Belichick was their coach but Kevin Stefanski and Baker Mayfield are improving as a tandem.
Mayfield and the Browns have won the past for games and the quarterback has gone five games in a row without throwing an interception. The Brown's success has also come from running the ball, Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb have over 700 yards between the two of them. Only the New England Patriots have run more rushing plays and only the Patriots and Ravens have more passing attempts than the Browns. Sports Illustrated host Kaitlin O'Toole is joined by SI's NFL and Fantasy Analyst is joined for more insight on the Brown's success.
