These Cleveland Browns find themselves in Jay Frierson’s “Dawg House” entering Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
The Cleveland Browns suffered another tough lost against the New York Jets on Sunday. In a game where they were the favorites, they played terribly, and continued to regress. What player/staff made the Dawg House this week?
Another week and loss for the Cleveland Browns.
This was the second game in three weeks that the Browns were favorited to win. They almost made a miraculous comeback against the Indianapolis Colts, but failed due to all the dropped passes–which has been a theme this season.
They had every chance against the New York Jets, but they couldn’t get out of their own way.
It got so bad, coach Hue Jackson took out DeShone Kizer and substituted him with Kevin Hogan–who will be the starter against the Houston Texans on Sunday. He makes quarterback number 28 on that infamous Browns jersey that started with Ty Detmer.
28 quaterbacks in 18 years. That’s completely absurd.
The running game is still missing, and the receivers are still terrible. Bryce Treggs, who was signed from the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad got the start last Sunday, but he was still learning the chemistry with Kizer, and now he has to do so with Hogan.
The only positive from the game was David Njoku. He now leads all rookie tight ends in every category. In comparison to O.J. Howard of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he has 12 receptions for 118 yards and three touchdowns.
Howard only has four receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. I mentioned in my draft article how Njoku would be the better tight end between the two, and he’s proving me right.
I look for him to get even more targets on Sunday against the Texans. Hogan immediately went to him when he came in, and the offense went down the field. He’s a big, athletic, fast player that needs to be included into the offense more. He just makes plays.
The defense did a decent job against the Jets and Josh McCown. Myles Garrett got his first sack of the game on the first play! He then got his second sack later in the game. Hopefully that carries into Sunday.
Jamar Taylor and Jason McCourty had their best games at cornerback, and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams finally played Jabrill Peppers near the plays instead of 200 yards back as he’s been doing since the season began.
However, in usual Browns fashion, it was all for nothing and they suffered another loss. This was a game that most fans thought they had the most realistic chance of winning, but failed.
The Browns are now 0-5 and the schedule doesn’t get any easier after Houston. It was another tough loss and a step back for the team and the staff. What players/staff made it to the Dawg House this week?
