After two seasons with only five wins, head coach Matt Rhule was on the hot seat. However, it was decided to give him another chance and try to lead the Carolina Panthers to the playoffs this year.
The Panthers have made several changes between two seasons and the key one was at quarterback position. Baker Mayfield has fought his way into the starting position and he will play against his former team tomorrow full of motivation to prove them wrong. Christian McCaffrey has recovered and will be ready for opening round, which is great news knowing how many problems this running back had in recent years.
The Panthers want to start the season with a win. They have solid quality in all lines of the team. Only problem in previous years was a huge number of injuries. When healthy, they are able to compete against anyone in the league and they will show it.
After getting rid of mentioned Baker Mayfield, the Cleveland Browns hired Deshaun Watson as their new starting quarterback. However, he will miss first 11 weeks due to suspension and will only be able to play from second half of November.
With Odell Beckham Jr. departure last year, wide receiver corps has also weakened a lot and it is hard to believe that Amari Cooper will be able to carry this offense alone. Jacoby Brissett will play at starting quarterback until Watson returns and that is not encouraging news for Browns fans. Considering all the circumstances, it is very difficult for them to expect a spot in the playoffs this year. This could be the season in which they will lay foundations for the next period when Watson will be the leader on the field.
The Browns have the quality to beat the Panthers in Charlotte, but they will have to play an outstanding game. Brissett before all. If he makes a few mistakes and gives away a couple of balls to the opponent, it will be difficult for the Browns to return to Cleveland with a win.
Last time these two teams played against each other was four years ago when the Browns won 26-20 in Cleveland.
All important players are available for Carolina Panthers. Jadeveon Clowney is questionable for Cleveland Browns.
Carolina Panthers vs. Cleveland Browns Prediction
There are several reasons why this is a good bet. The Browns have been in general disarray over the past few months with Watson situation. Offense doesn’t look efficient and the Panthers can stop their run game. In addition, Mayfield will be highly motivated to show his former team that they were wrong, and all this leads to the conclusion that home team will achieve victory in this game.
