|Baker Mayfield||68||100%||23-of-34 (67.6%) for 215 yards, 2 TD. 4 rushes, 43 yards.|
- We saw a very neutered version of Baker Mayfield in the first half, particularly on third down, when he would continuously check down quickly to the crossing receiver well short of the first down. Mayfield found his groove in the second half and was better when he let it rip and didn’t think about things.
- Per PFF, Mayfield was 15-of-20 with two touchdowns when taking 2.5 seconds or less to throw. On plays 2.5 seconds or longer, he was 8-of-14 and took five sacks.
|Nick Chubb||45||66%||18 carries, 80 yards (4.4 YPC). 1 TD. 0 catches (2 targets).|
|Duke Johnson||35||51%||1 carry, -4 yards (-4.0 YPC). 4 catches, 23 yards (4 targets).|
- With Carlos Hyde out of the mix, the Browns stuck with two backs and gave Nick Chubb a season-high 18 carries as he played two third of the game. There were quite a few plays where both Chubb and Duke Johnson were on the field at the same time.
- Johnson’s actual utilization seemed to take a step back this week. The team tried using him on receiver screens early on, but a penalty called one of his plays back. Considering the Buccaneers’ linebackers were all banged up, this felt like a big missed opportunity for Cleveland.
- Per PFF, Chubb forced three missed tackles and was 9th in the league this week with a 3.39 yard average after contact. He was only a pass blocker on two snaps, and did not allow a pressure on either one.
|Jarvis Landry||67||99%||10 catches, 97 yards (15 targets). 1 TD.|
|Antonio Callaway||51||75%||1 catch, 14 yards (2 targets).|
|Damion Ratley||40||59%||3 catches, 23 yards (3 targets).|
|Breshad Perriman||11||16%||1 catch, 6 yards (1 target).|
- There’s the type of game I want to see from Jarvis Landry. It’s the first time we’ve seen his mojo on display in weeks, and that is the attitude and type of catches we need to fire the team up. Landry caught a touchdown pass and received a team-high 83.5 grade on offense for Cleveland.
- The rest of the receivers were pretty much non-existent. Antonio Callaway had one catch, and Damion Ratley had 3 catches for 23 yards. Considering how bad the Buccaneers’ secondary was, it wasn’t good that the team couldn’t get more separation.
|David Njoku||57||84%||4 catches, 52 yards (6 targets). 1 TD.|
|Darren Fells||24||35%||No stats registered.|
|Orson Charles||9||13%||No stats registered.|
- Add another drop to the resume of David Njoku, but it is a little encouraging to see him making some more athletic grabs as the weeks go on. It’s not that I want to live with drops, but they become a tad more bearable if he’s actually producing throughout the rest of the game.
- No snaps on offense for Seth DeValve (shrugs).
- The Browns allowed five sacks.
- RT Chris Hubbard has been getting on PFF’s good side the past few weeks. He graded 4th on offense this week with a grade of 71.1.
