The Cleveland Browns have won the day against the Washington Football Team, and these are the three best and worst things to come from Week 3.
The Cleveland Browns are 2-1 and have a winning record for the first time since *checks notes* Moses parted the Red Sea….That can’t be right. The team upended the Washington Football Team on Sunday with a final of 34-20 in a game that saw the Browns move the ball seemingly at will on offense and, subsequently, gave up plays at will on defense.
Baker Mayfield and Dwayne Haskins had polar opposite days. Mayfield scored two touchdowns and was just shy of completing 70% of his passes, though he did throw for less than 200 yards. Granted, he didn’t need to throw for more. Haskins, on the other hand, was just outright bad – a recurring trend for the Ohio State product – and threw three interceptions on the day.
Mayfield had a group of pass-catchers and ball carriers to lean on and lead the team to yet another high scoring output by the offense. The Washington Football team has no one but Haskins, not even the offensive line. Haskins looked like a mouse running around a maze, constantly looking for the right way out.
Defensively the Browns were disappointing but Myles Garrett and B.J. Goodson did step up. Garrett had two sacks, while Goodson had a fumble recovery and an interception. They’ll need to play better from here and out though, as Washington was just a terrible offensive team.
Let’s get into the good and bad of Week 3.
