The Browns proved Sunday they can find success against some of the best teams in the NFL, but the win didn’t come without adversity.

Cleveland was without top running back RB Nick Chubb and two key defensive players in DT Larry Ogunjobi and S Karl Joseph. The Browns knew they would need to rely on some of their depth to find a winning performance against the Colts, and they needed another big week from their top playmakers, too, to prove that the excitement from their three-game win streak wasn’t going to be short-lived.

Stefanski had found a winning formula with his offense through running the football. The Browns totaled 307 rushing yards last week against the Dallas Cowboys and proved to be a nearly unstoppable team when the run game was at its peak form.

Chrissy Teigen’s miscarriage announcement made women like me feel less alone
