This Sunday, the Raiders will face the Browns in Cleveland, which is expected to be a touchstone for both teams. The strategy is 3-3. There are two extremes, first defeating the chief at Arrowhead, and then in the hands of the pirates. The Browns were 5-2, but their two losses were destroyed by the Steelers and Ravens, resulting in a strange situation where they scored 21 points (221) more than the score (200).
This is a duel that can determine this.
Derek Carr vs Nature
Carl’s troubles in cold weather are well documented. Josh Dubow of the Associated Press elaborated on them well in his tweet.
The forecast for Sunday at 1p.m. Cleveland Eastern Time is showers, gusts and 43 degrees. Since 2014, Derek Carr’s 68.9 score in games played at temperatures below 50 degrees ranks 47 out of 49 QBs, with 5+ starting in the cold (before Jeff Driskel and DeShone Kizer). In those games the strategy is 2-11

A few weeks ago, Karl got rid of the monkey who had never won on the arrow. This week, he had the opportunity to step up and show a higher level in cold weather, which he has never seen in history.
Trent Brown vs. Miles Garrett
Garrett leads the league with 9.0 sacks this season, including at least one sacks in six consecutive games. Fortunately, the Raiders looked like Trent Brown would return. However, he missed the practice last week and didn’t come back until Friday this week. He has only been given one practice in the past three weeks.
Brown has only participated in one complete game this season, and Gruden is not ready to say that Brown will start the game on Friday because he needs to ensure his physical condition and adapt to the game plan. Last Sunday, because Brown tested positive for COVID-19 and did not practice for the whole week, the offensive line was effective.
Trevon Mullen vs Jarvis Landry
Madden21 updated their rating this week, making Mullen the number one defense in the Raiders. There is no doubt that he is the team’s best defender this season, although considering how bad the defense is, it doesn’t tell much.
Mullen got a little rest because Brown just lost Odell Beckham JR this season. But Landry is not slacking. He has participated in the Pro Bowl for five consecutive seasons and led the Browns to finalists. Keeping Mullen in Landry throughout the game is not the worst idea.
Nick Kvatkowski vs Jarem Hunt
Nick Chubb lost his entire season a few weeks ago. In his absence, Henry Hunter (Kareem Hunt) averaged 4.58 yards per shot, and shot 569 yards from melee and seven touchdowns.
Although the Raiders’ defensive performance is not satisfactory, when Kwiatkoski (Kwiatkoski) plays, it will definitely have a positive impact. In a game where there may be a lot of runs and short passes, Kvitkoski’s presence is vital to the center. Stop hunting will be his top priority.
Josh Jacobs vs Browns defense
On the other side of the ball is the Raiders’ second-year defense against the outstanding Browns. You can’t just refer to a person’s success, this is the hallmark of comprehensive defense.
Center back BJ Goodson led the Browns to 51 tackles, outside line back Sione Takitaki led the team to a stop with 26 runs, and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi led the team to Lost 3 tackles and ran 18 times in total. Nose tackle Sheldon Richardson (Sheldon Richardson) also has 18 pain points.
In the game with the Buccaneers last week, Jacobs hit a career low of 1.7 yards. His four worst YPC games all happened this season. The extremely low point last week can be attributed to the offensive line missing a full week of practice time when facing the league’s top defense.
Although this will help Jacobs practice most of the offensive line this week, the Browns are also very talented guards. They can only carry 3.8 yards per season, which ranks sixth in the league. Just like he was a rookie last season, Jacobs must be different.
