Thursday morning word came out that New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has tested positive for COVID-19, thus putting him on the shelf for Sunday’s showdown with the Browns.
With Garrett out, it means someone that the Browns are very familiar with will be calling plays when the Browns come calling Sunday night
Yes, the former Browns coach will be the acting offensive coordinator calling plays, a twist on a game that could use some spark after former Giants now Browns wide out Odell Beckham Jr. was sidelined for the season with an injury.
Kitchens spent one season as Browns head coach, and it was a disaster, as the club went 6-10 and the coach was dismissed after the season.
The Browns remain 3.5 point favorites for Sunday evening’s game in MetLife Stadium.
