Can the Philadelphia Eagles take advantage of the Browns again?
When Philadelphia Eagles got their first look at the 2020 NFL schedule, they, no doubt did what every football fan does. They pulled out their Sharpie or pen. They wrote in Ls and Ws next to the games based on what they thought would be wins or losses, and that gave them an idea of whether or not this team would fall off of the wagon completely or legitimately compete for a spot in the playoffs.
If you’re like most Birds fans, you probably had that game in Cleveland marked as a victory, but if you saw that one as a game Philly should win but wouldn’t, no one would blame you for that. Seriously, you’ve been watching this team forever. Aren’t they always guaranteed to lose a few games in which they have no business letting the other team even look like they’re competitive in the matchup?
In 49 games versus one another throughout both of these teams’ histories, the Browns actually hold the series edge (31-17-1), but the Birds have won the last five meetings. Cleveland has also been taken advantage of by the Eagles’ brass as they’ve been on the wrong side of a few trades. A couple of those boneheaded decisions are basically the reason that Donovan McNabb and Carson Wentz wound up as Eagles.
Who knows? Maybe the Browns use that to fire themselves up. Maybe they’re thinking about revenge for more reasons than one. Heck, maybe the Birds continue their long-term dominance over Cleveland. If that latter scenario holds true, it won’t be easy. Here are ten Browns that could wreck Week 11’s game.
