Can't Afford a Brown-out on Offense

Taking a very early look at the Hawks next game, and one thing stands out: you better score some points if you want to beat the Browns.

The Browns have only scored less than 27 points three times so far this year (all losses). They average an impressive 27 points/game. The Hawks, by comparison, average just under 20 points/game.

The good news is the Browns defense allows an average of more than 31 pts/game, including 34 in two of their three losses.

The Hawks have one of the better scoring defenses in the NFL, allowing just 15 pts/game. We cannot expect the defense to hold this team down all day. If the Hawks are ever going to get their ground game going, this would be a the game to do it.

The Browns allow almost 5 yards per carry, and the Hawks offense needs to hold onto the ball for long stretches playing on the road against an explosive offense.
