Once Freddie Kitchens took over as offensive coordinator for the second half of the season, the Browns averaged better than 395 yards per game; surrendered just five sacks; averaged a league-best 6.86 yards per play; scored 25 touchdowns Joe Thomas Jersey , tied for sixth in the NFL, among other highlights.Now with Kitchens running the offense full-time as head coach, quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Nick Chubb entering their second season, and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. taking the position group to a new level, Cleveland’s offense has the potential to be among the league’s elite. How elite, you ask? Well, according to both Ali Bhanpuri of NFL.com and ESPN’s Bill Barnwell, the Browns should be very elite on offense in 2019.First up is Bhanpuri Chris Hubbard Color Rush Jersey , who ranked each team’s top triplets - quarterback, running back and wide receiver - using a weighted points system and the Browns checked in at No. 3 in the league, trailing just the Los Angeles Chargers (No. 2) and New Orleans Saints (No. 1):Barnwell took a different approach at ESPN, as he attempted to rank each team’s skill-position talent independent of the impact of the quarterback, the quality of the offensive line or the scheme of the coaching staff, among several other factors.But the results were the same as Cleveland comes in at No. 3, trailing the Kansas City Chiefs (No. 2) and the Los Angeles Rams (No. 1):Just how well the Browns stack up to the league’s best remains to be seen, but it appears likely that at least a couple of longstanding team records will fall in 2019.Mayfield looks to be a lock to become just the second quarterback in franchise history to surpass 4 https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Seth-Devalve-Jersey ,000 passing yards in a season. Brian Sipe’s team record of 4,132 passing yards, set in 1980, is well within Mayfield’s reach.The same can be said of Sipe’s record of 30 touchdown passes in a season, also set in 1980. Mayfield had 27 as a rookie despite sitting out the first two-plus games and being saddled with Hue Jackson for the first half of the season. With all the offensive weapons around him, it would be a bit of a disappointment if Mayfield does not finish the season well north of 30 touchdown passes. While the team record of 89 receptions - held jointly by tight ends Ozzie Newsome and Kellen Winslow Jr. - appears safe due to the Browns having numerous options, Beckham could still become just the fourth player to catch at least 10 touchdowns in a single season, joining Gary Collins (four times) Kevin Zeitler Jersey , Paul Warfield (twice) and Braylon Edwards (once).Finally, the Browns have only surpassed 400 points in a single season five times in franchise history. Ironically, the only time they managed to do it since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule in 1978 came in the 2007 season. (For those keeping score at home, the other times were in 1946, 1947, 1964 and 1966 - and in three of those years the Browns won a title.) This year’s squad should have no problem becoming just the second team in franchise history to reach that mark in a 16-game season.
