Kevin Stefanski treated the dining team at Minnesota’s favorite restaurant
When the Cleveland Browns traveled to Minnesota to face the Vikings in Week 4, it was a homecoming for coach Kevin Stefanski.
Prior to assuming the Browns coaching position in 2020, he worked in the Vikings organization for 14 years.
When he left the Vikings, he was the offensive coordinator.
With so much time spent in Minnesota, Stefanski definitely has an indoor track for the best food in the area.
Even though he didn’t leave the hotel while the Browns were in town, he did manage to treat the team to dinner at one of his favorite Minnesota restaurants.
It’s called Revival Restaurant, located in Minneapolis and open since 2015.
Back in Minnesota, #Brown Coach Kevin Stefanski told me last night that he hasn’t even left the hotel (standard in COVID times). But he got one of his favorite spots, @RevivalFriedChx, to prepare the team dinner. He joked (?): “I need to practice mainly, because I followed him.”

The restaurant has remained silent on the catering order beyond retweeting Tom Pelissero’s tweet.
However, a spokesperson for Twist Davis Group told bringmetothenews.com what the team had eaten.
This person said:
“They enjoyed the fried chicken, ribs, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and collard greens.”
The meal rekindled the defense
One could argue that the meal fueled the defense that really didn’t need a revival.
The Browns defense has been in tears for two straight games.
Myles Garrett had a record week for sacks against the Chicago Bears.
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah has always been excellent every time he hit the pitch.
The #Brown currently ranked 2nd in the NFL in total defense.

The offense needs a revival
It will not be a pessimistic report on the offense.
Things weren’t going well for Mayfield on Sunday.
#Brown John Johnson III said on the sidelines they can tell Baker Mayfield is frustrated, but they made sure to keep his head up and know he can bounce back after the performance.
“I don’t think it was that bad, it was good enough to win the game.”

It’s a long season ahead, and the offense will pick things up as they go.
There’s a big test against the Los Angeles Chargers for Week 5.
Justin Herbert can rack up points, so both sides of the ball will be tested on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Browns are 3-1.
Baker Mayfield must be better.
He has given ample proof that he can be.
The fact that the Browns beat the Vikings with a bad game is a good sign, not a bad one.

Minus a few bad plays in Kansas City, they could be undefeated.
Browns fans are well aware that things could be much worse.
