The Cleveland Browns were embarrassed at home as FirstEnergy Stadium became Dallas north as Cowboys’ fans flooded the venue.
This loss, which sent the Browns to 0-9, revitalized the career of Jason Witten.
He had eight receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown. According to Pro Football Reference, that’s the first 100-plus yard game he’s had since 2013. It was against the Philadelphia Eagles where he had 135 receiving yards.
However, it’s easy to come close to the milestone again when a player is left wide open for most of the game.
Believe it or not, there were a few positives. Cody Kessler didn’t get knocked out of the game. The offensive line wasn’t that bad. Joe Haden held Dez Bryant to only one reception–and Jamie Collins–even though he struggled in coverage, played well.
Corey Coleman continued where he left off against the Baltimore Ravens in his first game back since breaking his hand after Week 2. He had three receptions for 41 yards. Besides that, there wasn’t much progression on either side of the ball.
With only seven games left, it’s hard to find a win in the schedule. The only team I can see the Browns getting a victory against are the Chargers a few weeks down the road.
Week 9, like every week has been forgettable. Here’s who earned a special place in the Dawg House for being especially bad.
