Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
|QB||Jacoby Brissett||67||100%||21-of-34 (61.8%) for 230 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. 3 rushes, 32 yards.|
- This was another above average performance by Jacoby Brissett, and it's just a damn shame that it was marred by his interception in the fourth quarter. I thought for sure he would run and pick up the first down, but not a touchdown. That would've set up a scenario where the Browns could've taken the clock to under two minutes and Los Angeles needing a touchdown to win.
- Brissett had some blemishes, like in the first half when his scramble throw to Nick Chubb was lofted a hair too far, along with not finding the open receiever early on. But I still manage my expectations with Brissett, and he has been blowing them away.
|RB||Nick Chubb||35||52%||17 carries, 134 yards (7.9 YPC), 2 TD. 0 catches (1 target).|
|RB||Kareem Hunt||33||49%||11 carries, 47 yards (4.3 YPC), 1 TD. 3 catches, 10 yards (3 targets).|
- Nick Chubb was exceptional again; this season is the best I've ever seen from him. His ability to break tackles without even really taking a big hit can prolong his career too.
- Some fans are arguing as to why Kareem Hunt is in the game to close out a half instead of Chubb; but I won't complain about their utilization. When the Browns were in range for a 54 yard field goal, I didn't particularly care about calling a lateral run to Hunt; I think a draw up the middle gives you an easy 5 yards, then you can hurry up and try a pass play from there.
|WR||Amari Cooper||60||90%||7 catches, 76 yards (12 targets), 1 TD.|
|WR||Donovan Peoples-Jones||59||88%||4 catches, 50 yards (7 targets).|
|WR||David Bell||29||43%||1 catch, 6 yards (1 target).|
|WR||Anthony Schwartz||8||12%||0 catches (1 target).|
- Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones both had solid games. There was a stretch in the third or fourth quarter where Peoples-Jones caught 3 consecutive passes for first downs.
- David Bell and Anthony Schwartz both saw targets late in the game, but they didn't amount to much.
