It was another fun weekend for Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns fans this weekend. 2 games and 2 wins are becoming a surprising norm, especially with Browns fans.
The Buckeyes defense was once again dominant, with Joey Bosa leading the way with 2 sacks while the defensive backfield recorded 2 interceptions against starting quarterback Reilly O'Toole as well as 2 fumble recoveries. The Illini were able to score 2 late touchdowns against the third string defense but otherwise they were completely outmatched.
My take: the Buckeyes were able to take care of business before the big game next week in East Lansing as well as the Browns taking care of their business before meeting up with a huge division game in Cincinnati. The Browns, though, have to address their issues with the offensive line. Nick McDonald is a weak link and has caused issues not only with the running game but also keeping Hoyer from being pressured. The Buckeyes need to keep focused on the task at hand and hopefully playing in front of the loud and enthusiastic crowd at Happy Valley will be a good lesson learned in front of the Spartan's home crowd.
Next up: Thursday night game for the Browns against the Cincinnati Bengals and Saturday nights game for the Bucks against the Michigan State Spartans.
