"They had a good scheme, mixing different looks and stuff like that, but I really feel like our execution was not very good", said McCown, who earned his first three-game winning streak of his career and first win at FirstEnergy Stadium. And though their offense will continue to have its shortcomings, that'll be enough to get into the win column for Cleveland.
The Browns defense is stellar. But, hey the Browns led at one point. To be fair, McCown had little time to throw in the first half. Cleveland outgained NY 175 yards to just 67 yards.
After missing the first four weeks with a high ankle sprain, Myles Garrett is active for the Cleveland Browns, a winless team that could certainly use all the help they can get. He's thrown eight picks in just four games and is on pace to throw 32 this season, which would tie him for the fourth most in National Football League history. The team will be easily penetrable because of the lack of Britt on the field.
Both offenses were useless in the first quarter, as the two teams combined for just 76 total yards.
The backbreaker came on third down, where the Browns had otherwise thrived throughout the day. This week is where we stand out from the pack and make moves that dare I say are frowned upon by the typical fantasy football participant.
But, the special teams, in particular kicker Zane Gonzalez, did not play well in the first half, also. "Now I can actually get in the game and show what I can do, show what I've learned". For that reason, he also gets a longer losing leash than usual from the Browns' brass But just like recent coaches in Cleveland, Jackson won't work, either, if he falls into becoming short-sighted.
On the season, Kizer has completed 81 of his 157 attempts (50.94 percent) for 851 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions, and Sunday marked his fourth straight performance with less than a 50-percent completion rate. Additionally, Kevin Hogan was the best quarterback for the Browns in this game. The Jets almost equaled that disturbing total with a 97-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. Powell was highly coveted in the beginning of the season, but only had his first opportunity to excel in Week 4. However, the honeymoon quickly ended for Hogan as he threw a high pass that was deflected and picked off on the unit's next drive. NY started 0-2 after losses to the Bills and Raiders, but beat Miami and Jacksonville in their most recent two games. Attacking the quarterback and forcing drives to stall are exactly what Cleveland envisioned when it invested in last year's top selection to acquire his services. Rather than kick the tying field goal, Jackson made a decision to go for it and called up a horrendous play call to do it. "I didn't take too many serious hits that game".
Meanwhile, the Browns are 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 versus the AFC and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games following an ATS loss. Meanwhile, Isaiah Crowell isn't showing much but Duke Johnson is! He gave himself even-money odds that he could guess the starting quarterback combo for NY at Cleveland in four tries. "Without checking the tape, from my end, I didn't well to start the game". There were certain to be good days, bad ones and moments of doubt. But for all its faults, this team was not built to win this year and the struggles should not come as a surprise to anyone - and that starts with the Haslams and runs all the way down to the fans.
The Browns are hoping the 21-year-old year Garrett cannot only help them get their first win, but turn around a franchise that has had just one playoff appearance since 1999.
