NFL Latest Odds: CLE -1.5 ; O/U 42.5
The Browns commenced their regular season with an emphatic 24-3 victory over the Bengals, asserting their status as a formidable contender. Deshaun Watson, entrusted with quarterback duties, showcased his abilities by amassing 154 passing yards, albeit with one touchdown and one interception. Nick Chubb, a force to be reckoned with in the rushing game, accumulated 106 yards, averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Amari Cooper, the Browns’ top receiver, had a stellar 2022 season and contributed 37 yards in the season opener. While the Browns’ offense displayed promise, Watson’s consistency remains a key factor in their success.
The Steelers remain optimistic about their season opener defeat, even though Kenny Pickett struggled against the San Francisco 49ers’ formidable defense, amassing 232 passing yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions despite suffering an early season hamstring injury and is unlikely to participate in their next game. His growth and development will be crucial in driving success on offense for this team.
