Ravens vs. Browns: Analyzing the Snap Counts (Offense)

Hi. - Matt Sullivan

Looking at the offensive snap counts in the Browns' 24-18 victory over the Ravens.

The Cleveland Browns' offense looked productive under Jason Campbell for the second week in a row, this time in a 24-18 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Check out the snap distributions below for the offense, and let us know what your reactions are in the comments section.

Thoughts: The offensive line yielded three sacks and seven quarterback hits. The run blocking was still very poor, but the pass blocking wasn't bad, considering the Ravens feature the third-best pass rush in the NFL.

Willis McGahee: 21 carries, 31 yards, 1.5 YPC.
Chris Ogbonnaya: 5 catches, 39 yards (6 targets).
Fozzy Whittaker: 2 carries, 11 yards. 3 catches, 13 yards (4 targets).

Thoughts: The Browns are entering the territory of being a contending team, but right now, there is one major blemish on their team: there is no productivity from the running game. It's not all on Willis McGahee; the run blocking appears to be quite poor in general. With that said, a faster back can get more of a burst, and both Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker are catching the ball well right now. Cleveland needs to take a long look at this position during the bye week. DE Billy Winn played one snap at fullback (a 3rd-and-1), presumably because TE MarQueis Gray was hurt. The play did not go for a first down on a rushing attempt by McGahee.


Wide Receiver

Josh Gordon: 3 catches, 44 yards (7 targets). 1 carry, 10 yards.
Greg Little: 7 catch, 122 yards (9 targets).
Davone Bess: 3 catches, 24 yards, 2 touchdowns (4 targets).
Armanti Edwards: 1 catch, 10 yards (1 target).

Thoughts: This week was all about redemption for both Greg Little and Davone Bess. Penalties aside, Little redeemed himself for the disastrous game he had against Baltimore back in Week 2. Bess redeemed himself from costing Cleveland a chance at beating the Chiefs in Week 8. Josh Gordon didn't have a flashy statistical day, but did the job of being a presence who wasn't available back in Week 2. Armanti Edwards caught one pass just before the end of the first half.


Tight End

MarQueis Gray

Jordan Cameron: 1 catch, 5 yards (5 targets).
Gary Barnidge: 1 catch, 4 yards, 1 touchdown (1 target).
MarQueis Gray: 1 carry, 1 yard.

Thoughts: This will probably go down as Jordan Cameron's worst statistical day of the season. It wasn't because he had a bad day or anything; sometimes, the offensive flow just doesn't go your way. Gary Barnidge caught his first touchdown pass as a Brown. MarQueis Gray had one read-option play, but suffered an injury a little later that kept him out the rest of the game.


Quarterback
Jason Campbell
Brandon Weeden

Jason Campbell: 23-of-35 for 262 yards, 3 touchdowns. 3 carries, 20 yards.
Brandon Weeden: 1-of-2 for -2 yards.

Thoughts: I could hear the collective groans from Cleveland fans when Brandon Weeden had to enter the game for a couple of plays -- "not again" had to be going through everybody's minds. I feared that Jason Campbell had broken his collarbone again. Thankfully, Campbell re-entered the game and toughed out a solid performance despite having bruised ribs.
