The Buccaneers return home for the first and only time this month to square off against Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. Quarterback Jameis Winston will make his first home start this season as he leads the Bucs' high-powered offense against a Cleveland defense known for their takeaway capability. The Browns are tied for the best turnover margin in the league, with a +7, meaning they've created seven more turnovers than they've given up. They're also extremely good on third down, allowing opponents to convert just 31.33% of third down attempts so far this season. That's good for fourth-best in the league.
The game also pins the fifth-best rushing offense, which Cleveland has with Carlos Hyde, Duke Johnson and the rookie Nick Chubb, against the league's fifth-best rushing defense in the Buccaneers. The Browns' rushing attack also allows quarterback Baker Mayfield to be more comfortable and have more options. Shutting down the run game will be crucial to get Cleveland's offense out of rhythm.
