Fact or Fiction? Can Deshaun Watson and the Cleveland Browns win the AFC North after stunning the Ravens in Week 10?
The Cleveland Browns shocked the Baltimore Ravens and the NFL world on Sunday, coming back from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter to take the 33-31 win. But can the Browns continue this momentum and make a run for the AFC North championship?
The Browns have been a streaky team this season, showing flashes of potential but also bouts of inconsistency. But with the momentum of their Week 10 victory, it is possible the team has finally clicked into place.
The Browns have shown they can compete with the best of the best in the NFL, with wins over the Ravens and Indianapolis Colts, two of the top teams in the AFC. Quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has been a revelation since arriving in Cleveland, has the support of a strong offensive line and a defense that can still cause a lot of problems for opponents.
But there are still some doubts about the Browns’ ability to make a meaningful run for the AFC North. The Steelers are still the top team in the division, and the Ravens, despite their Week 10 loss, are still very much a force to be reckoned with. The Browns still have to face the Steelers twice and the Ravens once more before the end of the season.
It is possible that the Browns can pull off the upset and win the AFC North. But it will take a lot of hard work, determination, and the continued impressive play of Deshaun Watson. If the Browns can keep up their current form and click on all cylinders, then there is a hell of a chance they could make a bid for the division title.
Only time will tell whether the Browns can make a legitimate run for the AFC North crown. But if their Week 10 performance is any indication, then the Browns are certainly showing they have what it takes to make a serious sports betting bid for the title.
