|Baker Mayfield||54||100%||12-of-27 (44.4%) for 279 yards, 3 TD, 3 INT. 4 rushes, 29 yards.|
- The day started great for Baker Mayfield, who threw a deep touchdown pass on his first attempt of the game. Later in the game, Mayfield also found Jarvis Landry on a deep ball touchdown, something I think we wish we would’ve seen more of from Cleveland this year (run the ball, and then stretch the field deep).
- With the good also comes the bad. There were a lot of inaccurate passes, more passes tipped, and plenty of sacks taken due to poor offensive line play. One thing that I know pumped some fans up but made me just laugh is how excited Mayfield was after running for a first down. Why was I laughing? Because I kept thinking, “watch us get sacked on the next play.” Sure enough, two of the next three plays were sacks — and then Mayfield and Beckham connected on the great touchdown pass to salvage things.
|Kareem Hunt||36||67%||3 carries, 4 yards (1.3 YPC). 3 catches, 32 yards (4 targets).|
|Nick Chubb||31||57%||13 carries, 41 yards (3.2 YPC). 1 catch, 1 yard (2 targets).|
- Nick Chubb didn’t win the rushing title in 2019, thanks to Derrick Henry surpassing him with a 200+ yard effort in the afternoon game. The run blocking was not there against a Bengals team that doesn’t defend the run well, and I can only attribute that to a lack of motivation by several members of the team (not the running backs).
- Kareem Hunt out-snapped Chubb, as has been the case when Cleveland is playing from behind. He really wasn’t involved too much in the offense though either.
|Jarvis Landry||54||100%||2 catches, 82 yards (6 targets). 1 TD.|
|Odell Beckham||49||91%||3 catches, 81 yards (6 targets). 1 TD.|
|KhaDarel Hodge||17||31%||1 catch, 19 yards (2 targets).|
|Damion Ratley||11||20%||2 catches, 64 yards (3 targets). 1 TD.|
- The Browns had three receivers catch touchdown passes, and Odell Beckham surpassed 1,000 yards receiving on the season.
- Jarvis Landry had a bit of a weird day on the field from a body language standpoint. I have no doubt that he cares and has great passion, but on a few of his routes, it seemed like he wasn’t finishing the play as if it mattered.
- Despite Damion Ratley catching an early touchdown pass, he only played 11 snaps in the game. It was the first touchdown catch of his NFL career.
|Demetrius Harris||32||59%||0 catches (1 target).|
|Stephen Carlson||23||43%||No stats registered.|
|Ricky Seals-Jones||11||20%||No stats registered.|
|David Njoku||4||7%||No stats registered.|
- The Browns activated four tight ends, but they were targeted only once all game, and that was a bailout dumpoff thrown to Demetrius Harris after a poor block.
- David Njoku was active but only played four snaps.
- I didn’t even realize this, but unless there was an unknown injury, Wyatt Teller was benched early in the game in favor of Justin McCray. McCray played 87% of the snaps.
- The Browns allowed 6 sacks and 9 quarterback hits.
