A look at Kyle Shanahan’s Zone Run Game, Part II: Cleveland Browns Film Room

(If you missed Part I, make sure to check it out here.) The idea that the NFL has become a passing league does not phase new Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. While many other teams turn to more pass-oriented offenses, Shanahan prefers his offense has a similar run-to-pass ratio to teams before the thirty-four year-old was even born.
