The Cleveland Browns have the best chance to knock off the Buffalo Bills in the playoffs.

Another team that has skyrocketed out of the shell of their former selves is the Cleveland Browns. After they screamed into the NFL playoffs for their first win since 1994 by embarrassing the Pittsburgh Steelers, they suffered a controversial call at the end of the first half against the Chiefs, and at one point had Kansas City on the ropes. The additions from their draft class are fantastic, adding Greg Newsome II from Northwestern and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramorah out of Notre Dame were absolute steals that should be day-one starters.

Not to mention that they’re going to get Grant Delpit, a 2020 draft pick from LSU back from the IR list after a season-ending injury. John Johnson and Troy Hill are solid secondary players that both darted from the L.A. Rams for the Browns instead. Look for this defense to be even more deadly with a more recovered Myles Garret and Jadaveon Clowney in the trenches.

On the offensive side, not much changed there at all. This Browns squad is ready to play anyone, and Kevin Stefanski’s genius playcalling helped Baker Mayfield turn the page in his career. A healthy returning Odell Beckham Jr will be tough to cover, and if the running game can yield the same results that it had last year, this team can beat anyone in the league.

Don’t forget Stefanski coached his team remotely during wildcard weekend because a positive COVID test, and assistant coach Alex Van Pelt orchestrated their battle tactics to upset the Steelers. This is why they’re the biggest threat to the Bills not named the Chiefs.
