Baltimore Ravens running back Keaton Mitchell made the most out of the first nine rush attempts of his NFL career.
Mitchell rushed the football nine times in Baltimore’s home win over the Seattle Seahawks, and he logged a game-high 138 rushing yards. He topped it all off with a 40-yard touchdown run in the late stages of the third quarter that put the game away for good.
Kevin Stefanski recently took some time to watch Mitchell’s outing in Week 9 in preparation for the Cleveland Browns’ upcoming road matchup against the Ravens. Mitchell’s sheer speed is what caught the attention of the fourth-year Browns head coach.
“Yeah, runs hard,” Stefanski said during a press conference ahead of Week 10. “I know size-wise, maybe not the biggest, but runs hard.”
The Browns are not only preparing to see Mitchell in Week 10 but also the array of playmakers that the Ravens boast on the offensive side of the ball.
“They have multiple guys that they can hand the ball to,” Stefanski said. “They have the receivers that they can hand the ball to. And then, like we mentioned, Lamar can keep the ball.
“So, they have a lot of options there in who they can spread the ball around to.”
Five different Ravens players have tallied at least 300 yards from scrimmage this season, including Gus Edwards, who leads the team with 585 such yards.
