The Browns secured a preseason win over the Jaguars on Saturday night.
The Browns defeated the Jaguars 23-13 on Saturday night, behind a very impressive outing from third-string quarterback Kyle Lauletta, and rookies Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Richard LeCounte III. They weren’t the only ones who had a big night, and that’s what we’re looking at in this post.
Now, this isn’t an “if you didn’t do well, you suck and will be cut!” type of post. We’re just looking at people who had a game that was either very good or could’ve been better. We are keeping in mind that a lot of the number one’s didn’t play, and in fact, the only number one on offense that did play was Andy Janovich.
Every other starter sat.
So we’re not going to get mad at D’Ernest Johnson for averaging under three yards per carry, because we know the offensive line was made up of backups and it expectedly struggled to create holes. We get that.
Also, just because a player doesn’t get included on the list isn’t anything to worry about. Some guys are unsung heroes, while others did just enough to have a positive impact. We’re simply looking at the very best performances and the very worst performances.
All in all, it was a good enough outing by the Browns’ second-string offense against a bad Jaguars defense, and an even better outing against a really bad Jaguars offense. It’d be wise to not put too much stock in future performances based on this one game, against this one team, be they good or bad.
