The Browns shook up their coaching staff

  after three straight losses and the new regime¡¯s first effort has resulted in some offensive success.Cleveland punted to open the game [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hoodie]Cleveland Browns Womens Hoodie[/url] , but scored on their next three possessions while putting up 217 yards of offense. The last of those yards came on a 19-yard pass from Baker Mayfield to running back Duke Johnson. The Browns went for two ¡ª they did the same after their first touchdown ¡ª and failed to convert, so the Chiefs remained ahead 21-15 at halftime.In order for the Browns to pull any closer, they are going to need a better defensive plan in the second half. The Chiefs scored touchdowns on their first three possessions and will get the ball to start the second half.Kareem Hunt opened the scoring by taking a screen pass 50 yards for a touchdown and he provided his team¡¯s final points of the half with a one-yard touchdown run. That makes 12 touchdowns on the year for Hunt, who scored 11 as a rookie and shows no signs of slowing down.That¡¯s also true of Patrick Mahomes, who now has 28 touchdown passes on the year after throwing one to Travis Kelce as well. Len Dawson set the franchise record with 30 touchdowns in 1964, but he may have company by the time this game comes to an end.Mahomes is 12-of-17 for 232 yards while Mayfield is 16-of-22 for 153 yards in their first meeting since a Texas Tech-Oklahoma game in 2016. That one ended with 1,279 passing yards between the two teams, which is likely not a number we¡¯ll hit this Sunday. Things are shaping up for an entertaining final 30 minutes, though.Browns name undrafted rookie Desmond Harrison starting left tackle Coach Hue Jackson named undrafted rookie Desmond Harrison the Cleveland Browns starting left tackle [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-customized]Womens Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys[/url] , and also said veteran Joel Bitonio is moving back to left guard. Bitonio had played left tackle throughout most of training camp and received every first-team preseason game snap at the position.Jackson indicated Bitonio being ready to step in if needed would be ¡°plan B¡± in the event of injury or unforeseen circumstance, but the team¡¯s plan is to roll with Harrison this season.Why the change so close to the season? Well, Harrison impressed during OTAs, and had been injured early on in training camp, so he wasn¡¯t able to immediately earn the position.But Jackson made it clear he has risen to the top of the depth chart since getting back on the practice field.¡°Practice, watching him over the last few weeks with the ones, watching him in games, obviously he¡¯s talented enough,¡± Jackson said on Friday. ¡°I think this is hopefully going to be our lineup as we travel throughout the season.¡°I feel good about those five guys [url=http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com]www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com[/url] , I think it gives us the best chance to have the most success.¡±Harrison, 24, is a 6-foot-6 prototypical left tackle who looks the part physically and technically. Notably, he will start before No. 33 overall pick Austin Corbett. Corbett had been slated to start at left guard before today¡¯s decision to insert Harrison into the starting lineup.Talent was never the question for Harrison as he entered the league this offseason. Noted NFL draft evaluator Emory Hunt said he had a higher grade on Harrison than he did Corbett. But according to the Plain Dealer¡¯s Mary Kay Cabot, Harrison failed a drug test at the NFL scouting combine. That, along with other off-the-field concerns dropped him from a sure-fire draft pick to an undrafted player.The Browns decided to take a shot on him nonetheless, and in doing so may have found a long-term replacement for recently retired annual Pro Bowler Joe Thomas.
