It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
Far-Fetched Friday: Cleveland Browns to Super Bowl
Although there is no denying the Kansas City Chiefs are the overwhelming favorites for the Super Bowl, as they should be, I believe the Cleveland Browns will defeat them on route to the AFC Championship.
Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at the renaissance of the Cleveland Browns.
The Cleveland Browns have long been the laughing stock of the NFL. But as we know, all it takes is one season to correct that image. And while this season has already been a giant leap in that direction, I believe it will last a few more weeks.
It won't be my first time including the Cleveland Browns in the series. I said they would go 8 and 8 a few years ago, and last season I was way off when, before the season started, I said they would get to the AFC Championship game. Yet I'm back for more. I'm not a Browns fan by any means, but it's fun to root for the vast underdog at times.
What they did last weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers may be looked at as a fluke, but still, they fielded a heavily depleted playing and coaching staff and managed to shock a team that started the season 11 and 0. That means, this week, with everyone back and healthy, the Cleveland Browns go into this matchup with full confidence and belief despite being heavy underdogs.
Kareem Hunt has a point to prove to the Kansas City Chiefs and will have the help of his dynamic partner, Nick Chubb, in doing so. Myles Garett can prove that he should be the most feared defensive player in the NFL, and Baker Mayfield can finally silence all the doubters.
Sports are undoubtedly about momentum and random events.
Both seem to be on the side of the Cleveland Browns this season, and my prediction is that not only will they win their matchup this weekend, but they will also defeat either the Buffalo Bills or the Baltimore Ravens on route to a Super Bowl berth.
It's a wild prediction, but after all, this is called Far-Fetched Friday for a reason.
