Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Quarterback

Pos Player Plays % Stats
Pos Player Plays % Stats
QB Baker Mayfield 52 100% 18-of-22 (81.8%) for 238 yards, 1 TD. 4 rushes, 2 yards.
  • Feeling dangerous? That’s the norm now for Baker Mayfield, who had just four incompletions, two of which I remember were dropped passes by his receivers. The accuracy combined with the velocity from Mayfield is so scary good for a rookie that I don’t know what to do with myself as a fan. Is this real life?
  • Per PFF, Mayfield was the highest-graded quarterback in the NFL in Week 14.

Running Back

RB Nick Chubb 33 63% 13 carries, 66 yards (5.1 YPC). 1 TD. 4 catches, 17 yards (6 targets).
RB Duke Johnson 18 35% 2 rushes, -6 yards (-3.0 YPC).
RB Dontrell Hilliard 4 8% 2 catches, 20 yards (2 targets).
  • The perplexing element of the Browns’ offense the past few weeks is this: it’s working, but Duke Johnson really hasn’t been utilized much as a receiver. This week, he wasn’t targeted on a single pass. Maybe the fact that he missed most of the practice week played a role in not having him in the gameplan?
  • Nick Chubb continues to impress as both a runner and a receiver. He nearly came down with Jarvis Landry’s trick play pass to the end zone too.
  • Dontrell Hilliard received a series of work and had two dumpoff passes thrown to him.

Wide Receiver

WR Jarvis Landry 42 81% 3 catches, 57 yards (4 targets). 1 TD. 2 rushes, 54 yards (27.0 YPC). 1 TD. 0-of-1 (0%) for 0 yards. 1 fumble.
WR Antonio Callaway 38 38% 0 catches (1 target).
WR Rashard Higgins 26 26% 2 catches, 19 yards (3 targets). 1 fumble.
WR Breshad Perriman 19 19% 2 catches, 81 yards (2 targets).
WR Damion Ratley 2 4% No stats registered.
  • What an all-purpose day for Jarvis Landry! He went for the hat trick of touchdowns, but just barely missed out on the passing touchdown. I know people said it was a dangerous throw, but it was an aggressive one-on-one situation that ended up hitting the receiver in the hands first. Landry’s touchdown catch was great, and the formation in which he received both handoffs was gold. The only negative was the careless nature in which he held the ball to begin the second half, coughing the ball up for a fumble.
  • It was a rough day for Rashard Higgins, who was stripped of the ball on one pass and they dropped a laser that at the very least would’ve put Cleveland in a goal-to-go situation (instead, they settled for a field goal). I give Higgins a pass — these things happen.
  • What a job by Breshad Perriman, who bookended the game with great catches — one in which he went all-out for a 66-yard reception, and the other along the sideline to help bleed some more clock in the final minutes of the game. Antonio Callaway was only targeted once all game and did not have a catch.

Tight End

TE David Njoku 43 83% 3 catches, 35 yards (4 targets).
TE Darren Fells 23 44% No stats registered.
TE Seth DeValve 7 13% No stats registered.
TE Orson Charles 5 10% 1 catch, 9 yards (1 target).
  • David Njoku missed one laser of a pass along the sideline. Now, compared to Higgins’ drop, the pass to Njoku was high. So that falls under the category of “I’d love if he would’ve made that play,” but not one where I will lament on for very long.
  • Orson Charles had a rare catch and is always fired up, no matter what he is doing.

Offensive Line

OL Greg Robinson 52 100%
OL Joel Bitonio 52 100%
OL JC Tretter 52 100%
OL Kevin Zeitler 52 100%
OL Chris Hubbard 52 100%
  • The Browns allowed 1 sack and 1 quarterback hit. The streak that this unit is on is incredible. As PFF points out, the interior is just rock solid, and that comes even with JC Tretter battling on an ankle injury:
  • Joel Bitonio was the top-graded guard in Week 14 (89.9).
