|DeShone Kizer||59||100%||18-of-36 for 182 yards, 2 INT. 3 rushes, 8 yards.|
- It was great to stack up DeShone Kizer and Mitchell Trubisky against each other in terms of development. While Trubisky still has a ways to go himself, he is much more polished than Kizer, working with what is honestly probably a lower-quality talent pool on offense.
- PFF says that Kizer struggled on passes that were 10 or more yards downfield, going 1-for-10 for 35 yards and 1 interception. On passes shorter than that, he was 17-of-23 for 147 yards.
|Isaiah Crowell||31||53%||12 carries, 44 yards (3.7 YPC). 1 catch, -1 yard (4 targets).|
|Duke Johnson||29||49%||4 carries, 20 yards (5.0 YPC). 7 catches, 81 yards (7 targets).|
|Danny Vitale||5||8%||No stats registered.|
|Matthew Dayes||1||2%||1 carry, 3 yards (3.0 YPC).|
- This is so bleeping ridiculous. Isaiah Crowell received 0 carries in the second half after getting 12 carries in the first half. In the second half, Duke Johnson had 2 carries. This was a 6-3 game at the half.
- Duke Johnson carved the Bears’ defense up as a receiver, and a set a franchise record for most receptions by a Browns running back. He’s on pace to finish the season with the team lead in receiving yards.
|Corey Coleman||52||88%||1 catch, 3 yards (6 targets).|
|Josh Gordon||49||83%||2 catches, 19 yards (8 targets).|
|Rashard Higgins||43||73%||2 catches, 20 yards (3 targets). 1 fumble.|
|Ricardo Louis||9||15%||1 catch, 35 yards (1 target).|
|Sammie Coates||4||7%||No stats registered.|
- Those who shake their head in disappointment at Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon, I would say “don’t.” I think that’s how bad DeShone Kizer is most of the time. He can’t time these guys up, the ball placement is terrible, etc.
- Ricardo Louis made a nice catch-and-run on a deep post route before the end of the first half, setting up Cleveland’s lone score of the game. Rashard Higgins tried to make a highlight play, dodging tackles in open space, but ended up making a lowlight when he was tackled from behind and fumbled into the end zone.
|David Njoku||30||49%||1 catch, 13 yards (3 targets).|
|Seth DeValve||28||47%||3 catches, 12 yards (4 targets).|
|Randall Telfer||13||22%||No stats registered.|
|Matt Lengel||1||1%||No stats registered.|
- The tight ends came up empty again. Cleveland might have to re-evaluate this position again in 2018, but again, it’s so tough to evaluate these units with such abysmal quarterback play.
- The Browns only yielded one sack, but allowed 10 quarterback hits. Per PFF, J.C. Tretter, Kevin Zeitler, and Shon Coleman each allowed 3 pressures. They note that Zeitler struggled with a grade of 32.3, with especially bad run blocking.
I’m getting more antsy to fire Hue Jackson by the second. John Dorsey will make a lot of fans if he does that, but it would prevent the team from being able to coach the Senior Bowl for the second year in a row.
