Le’Veon Bell has been one of the most impressive running backs in the NFL after 5 weeks. Bell is a back that has good cut back ability and with him losing a few pounds in the offseason he has truly looked like a new back. Well it has helped him establish himself as a good back. The number you need to know this year is 137.6
That is Running back Le’Veon Bell’s average yards from scrimmage through the Steelers’ first five games. Bell is the first player in Steelers history to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage in the first five games of a season. The second-year man piled up 197 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown in a 30-27 win over the Browns on Sept. 7.
This week they face the Browns and the number 143.3 is the number you need to remember this week.
That is the average number of rushing yards for the Browns per game, fourth in the league. This is a team that was horrid running a year ago, but with rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell contributing and Ben Tate rushing for a career high in Tennessee, the Browns are running the ball well.
So what can you expect this week? A power running game for both teams. Whoever has less turnovers and can stop their opponents will win this game. It will be a DAWG fight.
