Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Quarterback

QB Baker Mayfield 60 100% 18-of-37 (48.6%) for 247 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. 2 rushes, 4 yards.
  • Even with all of the Browns’ mistakes against Baltimore, it’s frustrating to know that the plays were there to be made, such as when Baker Mayfield would’ve had Kareem Hunt open for a possible touchdown on a screen pass, but fumbled instead. Mistakes happen, but they are piling up too often compared to the clutch plays.
  • I don’t think Mayfield played a terrible game. His receivers certainly did him no favors. This is a game where everyone needed to be better on offense, including Mayfield, who is still dealing with injuries.

Running Back

RB Nick Chubb 30 50% 8 carries, 16 yards (2.0 YPC). 2 catches, 23 yards (4 targets).
RB Kareem Hunt 23 38% 7 carries, 20 yards (2.9 YPC). 0 catches (1 target).
RB D'Ernest Johnson 6 10% No stats registered.
  • I don’t know if I remember a game in which Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt were both available, yet both non-factors. It seemed like the offense could’ve had success just running the backs to the flat and throwing them the ball; it’s an element of the offense they didn’t go to enough.
  • Also, Demetric Felton saw one play, where he dropped a third down pass. Why isn’t that Hunt in there? Also, D’Ernest Johnson was in the game on the final drive instead of Hunt — why?

Wide Receiver

WR Jarvis Landry 56 93% 6 catches, 111 yards (10 targets). 1 fumble.
WR Donovan Peoples-Jones 45 75% 2 catches, 10 yards (5 targets).
WR Jamarcus Bradley 21 35% 2 catches, 18 yards (2 targets).
WR JoJo Natson 2 3% No stats registered.
WR Demetric Felton 1 2% 0 catches (1 target).
  • Jarvis Landry had his best game of the season statistically as far as receiving yards go. He also couldn’t haul in a back shoulder pass on the final drive. The big negative play came when he fumbled after taking a snap from quarterback. He’s had an incredible success rate taking snaps, and this is the first time it didn’t result in a big play I think. Very unfortunate timing to say the least.
  • Donovan Peoples-Jones dropped a pass on the first drive that contributed to the Browns not getting points on the board.
  • Rashard Higgins was a healthy scratch in favor of Jamarcus Bradley. Meh.

Tight End

TE Austin Hooper 54 90% 0 catches (3 targets).
TE David Njoku 43 72% 3 catches, 35 yards (5 targets), 1 TD.
TE Harrison Bryant 16 27% 3 catches, 50 yards (3 targets).
  • Austin Hooper didn’t record a single catch.
  • David Njoku made a nice snag for a touchdown. I’m glad he was being utilized, but on the same note, it’s not a great sign for our receiving corps when the Ravens were treating him as our biggest threat besides Jarvis Landry.
  • Harrison Bryant was having a pretty nice game, but left with an ankle injury after catching a 41-yard pass in the second half.

Offensive Line

Pos Player Plays % Stats
Pos Player Plays % Stats
OL Jedrick Wills 60 100%
OL Joel Bitonio 60 100%
OL JC Tretter 60 100%
OL Wyatt Teller 60 100%
OL Blake Hance 50 83%
OL Jack Conklin 10 17%
OL Michael Dunn 3 5%
  • Bold prediction that we’ll never know in hindsight: if Jack Conklin played the whole game, Cleveland wins. Sadly, Conklin is lost for the season, and we’re right back to Blake Hance. Conklin has had terrible luck this year.
  • Per PFF, Wyatt Teller allowed three pressures, and Jedrick Wills and Hance combined to allow four pressures. Joel Bitonio graded to an 89.5, the highest among offensive players against Baltimore.
