Browns’ hype may have hit an all-time high last season as Baker Mayfield & Co. were expected to take Cleveland to great heights. That didn’t pan out and in comes a new coaching staff to try and maximize the talent on this team.
New coach Kevin Stefanski may lean on the run in 2020, something that many first-year coaches have found success with, as Ellis L. Williams of Cleveland.com details. Over the past five years, 13 different head coaches have found themselves in the top-10 in rushing and nine of those teams ended up 8-8 or better.

Cleveland’s over/under last season was nine wins, though the club finished just 8-8. This year, the total is 8.5 (Fan Duel).
Stefanski used two-running backs on 254 snaps last season as the Vikings’ play-caller. That figure was the third-highest in the league and the Browns could end up leading the league in that category this season.
