Chalk up another win for your Cleveland Browns! The Cleveland Browns had four representatives at the 2019 Pro Bowl: WR Jarvis Landry, OG Joel Bitonio, DE Myles Garrett, and CB Denzel Ward. Here is a recap of his performance and the aftermath.
AFC - 26
NFC - 7
Each Browns player received $67,000 for the victory, along with everyone else on the AFC team. Everyone on the NFC team received $34,000 in bonus money. Oftentimes, the players use that extra money to help fund friends and family coming down (airfare, hotel, meals, etc), so there is something to fight for as the game goes on. Rain played a factor in the outcome of the game, as quarterbacks were generally inaccurate throughout the contest.
WR Jarvis Landry - You could tell that Landry was having a good time, but as far as statistics go, he put up a donut. He was targeted 7 times, but came away with no catches. He was credited with a forced fumble on a pass that was intercepted (although the NFC still recovered). He almost had a touchdown, but couldn’t pull in this pass from QB Deshaun Watson:
OG Joel Bitonio - The Browns offensive lineman started at left guard.
DE Myles Garrett - Garrett was part of the defensive stat sheet and started, registering this absolutely brutal sack on QB Russell Wilson. This type of play illustrates just how seriously players take the game.
CB Denzel Ward - He was not a starter, but the Browns rookie did play in the game, getting in on the second series of the game. He did not log anything on the stat sheet, though.
There were co-MVPs — QB Patrick Mahomes for the offense and S Jamal Adams for the defense. Here is the trophy handling:
Until next year, right?
