The first half between the Browns and Patriots isn’t over yet, but it’s pretty obvious that Freddie Kitchens has seen enough from his offense.
Kitchens had roughly two weeks to get his offense ready for New England’s defense. Let’s just say it’s been a first half to forget for the Browns.
Nick Chubb fumbled near the red zone for the Patriots, and then later on Baker Mayfield threw an egregious interception on a shuffle pass.
Mayfield’s interception took place during such a poorly run play that Kitchens couldn’t help but wonder what went wrong.

All the preseason hype surrounding the Browns has quickly turned into criticism. Another loss would drop the team to 2-5 on the season.
One of the biggest issues for Cleveland this afternoon is that Mayfield and the offense haven’t held onto the football.

Kitchens will face a ton of criticism for the Browns’ shortcoming this season, but his players aren’t helping him at all. Perhaps the offense will turn it around in the second half against the Patriots, however, it’s nearly impossible to score more than 10 points on Bill Belichick’s defense.
The Browns-Patriots game is nearing the end of the first half.
