Remember the good old days in Week 3 when the Cleveland Browns dominated the Chicago Bears?

Myles Garrett broke the franchise single-game sack record, and things seemed to be humming along.

That was just three weeks ago but feels like a lifetime ago really.

Listening to Garrett after the disappointing loss to the Cardinals on Sunday was nothing short of depressing.

He said:

“We’re not living up to who we are and the potential we have.”

Not even close

This team has one of the best rosters in football.

First-round draft picks, Pro Bowlers, a former Super Bowl MVP and the list goes on.

On defense, the Browns seemed to hit their stride against the Chicago Bears.

They played well against the Vikings also.

However, the past two weeks have been disastrous.

They have reverted back to their early season tendency to give up huge plays on third down.

It just makes no sense at all.

Kyler Murray looked like Aaron Rodgers out there.

He was completing passes and picking apart the defense.

Murray wasted no time exposing the weaknesses; he had them figured out in the first quarter.

Let’s not forget that Murray’s head coach was not even at the game; he has COVID-19.

So this team traveled from Arizona to Cleveland with a lot of the coaching staff absent.

It had to patch together who and how to call plays.

And the Cardinals came in looking like it was just another ordinary day.

They sail out of Cleveland undefeated and barely challenged with a solid and impressive 6-0 record.

The Browns are left with wreckage in every part of the game and three days to prepare for their next game against the Denver Broncos.

Thursday night is a character game and a prove-it game for the Browns; they need to come out firing.
