Titans vs. Browns NFL Pick – Week 1
The Cleveland Browns Start their most anticipated season in over a decade against the Tennessee Titans.As a few pundits expect the Browns to be the team to beat in the AFC North, expectations are high in Cleveland. I'm not getting caught up in the hype, though. Baker Mayfield has to show me something for more than one season.
That's not a massive enough sample size because of my liking. Tape is out on him defenses are going to be much better prepared the second season around. Everybody had large expectations for Vince Young following his rookie season and he just went from that point. That is not to say one thing or another. Baker could develop into a perennial Pro Bowler, however he has the time to be a bust.
To put it differently, it's important not to get overly involved to what the media is saying, what respects. We can just go off what Baker did in his rookie year and what he did was impressive. He'll be looking to prevent a sophomore slump after finishing with 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions around 63.8% completions. His season also included 131 rushing yards. In his second season, expectations will be higher.
The Browns traded for Odell Beckham from March to give Mayfield an elite goal to pass on to. Beckham wanted out of New York and he even also got his wish with a deal to Cleveland. I really don't know if Cleveland had been his No. 1 destination, however he does go to a new with fascinating possibility and a quarterback who is going to zing it across the field.
Note that Beckham was dealing with a hip injury is not likely to be 100 percent here in Week 1. Reports have indicated that his hip is much worse than previously believed, so that hurts against the Titans. Head below for our complimentary Titans vs. Browns Week 1 pick.

There will be a ton of pressure on the Titans to carry out this year. The majority of this pressure will be pressed on quarterback Marcus Mariota. He's at a stage in his career in which he has to excel. Mariota was selected second overall by the Titans at 2015, so it's time to bend the load or someone will be coming to his job.
The Titans signed Ryan Tannehill offer him a competition and to drive Mariota. If Mariota always struggles, we must expect to determine Tannehill get snaps. And it's not like Mariota has been terribly awful, he simply hasn't lived up to his choice in the draft in No. 2.
Mariota handed for 8 interceptions and 11 touchdowns at 2018. He also rushed for 357 yards and two touchdowns. Just not everything you expect from a prospect from college. Together with Tannehill over the roster, Mariota has some motivation to perform.
The offense should be given an increase by corey Davis. Heading to his third time. Big things are expected after 891 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also Delanie Walker should combine to give the Browns' shield some looks in this particular contest.
Mariota will be benefited by the yield of a healthy Walker significantly. Everybody will be speaking about Baker Mayfield and Beckham in this match, however Walker and Davis can steal some of their limelight. Derrick Henry is not a fun man to try and handle. He averaged 146.5 metres on the floor in the last four weeks of the season.
Beckham is dealing with a hip injury as we mentioned previously. It has been confirmed he won't be anything near 100%. He missed all of training camp and didn't play a down in the preseason, which prevented Beckham and Baker from creating a rhythm. He is going to become more here. Regardless of the harm, the existence of Beckham must be honored by Tennessee.
I'm not one of the people signing the praises of the Browns at 2019, although we'll see how this season goes. They've various weapons, such as a reliable runner in Nick Chubb. It might take some time for this particular unit to have a chemistry playing. Mariota has had more than enough time with his team.
The line here of 6 will be set with people understanding in mind. Cleveland have been the most highly touted team in the offseason, so cash will put in on the Browns. 6 resembles a little too much to me at a game that needs to be a close competition. Henry chewing up yardage and maintaining drives likely keeps this within 6 points on Sunday.
