The Cleveland Browns have had to make adjustment after adjustment the last two years due to COVID-19. Last year, their adjustments went mostly flawless en route to a playoff appearance and win.
In 2021, almost nothing has been flawless for the team. Inconsistencies have plagued the team and regular changes due to injury and, recently, COVID-19 have made nothing easy.
With Baker Mayfield, along with others, just clearing COVID-19 protocols on Friday, some were forced to fly to Green Bay today, the day of the game. Mayfield posted a picture on his Instagram story showing him touching down in Green Bay around 10 AM Eastern Time:
With Case Keenum joining Mayfield off the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Browns are whole at the most important position on the field. The team has planned to have a walk-through practice this morning since the quarterback and others haven’t been able to practice for two weeks.
Almost nothing normal about this week for Cleveland going into a must-win game on Christmas Day.
