The Landry Jones Effect

Coming into this season the Steelers were a whole different team. While their defense was not the trademark Steelers defense everyone was used to seeing, their offense made up for all of that and more. When Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense plays together they usually put up a good amount of points.

Their ability to score usually terrifies me while watching Cleveland playing against their offense with the Browns really bad defense. Fortunately for Browns fans that will not be the case.

Landry Jones will be starting at QB for the Steelers on Sunday in place of Roethlisberger and the Steelers will definitely feel the drop in talent. So far Jones has played in three games with two starts. He has thrown 28/47 for 456 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs. While Jones hasn’t ruined the franchise while serving in for Roethlisberger, he’s definitely limited the offense when he’s played.

When Jones plays he only really throws to one WR. When the Steelers played Arizona, WR Martavis Bryant had 137 yards, which led the team in receiving yards. WR Antonio Brown was second with only 24.

Then against the Kansas City Chiefs, Brown had 124 yards while Bryant had 3 catches for 45 yards. Jones seems to have a hard time spreading the ball around, which is strange seeing the plethora of weapons he has at his disposal.

Jones playing Sunday will play really well into the Browns hands.
