1. Got right: Spreading ball around
It wasn’t reflected in the score, but head coach Kevin Stefanski had the ball going multiple directions in preseason Week 2.
Things would obviously feel different had Case Keenum been able to cash in another red-zone touchdown, instead of throwing interception, but I digress.
In the first half alone, eight different receivers caught passes, while four different running backs ran the rock. Add it all up and Cleveland threw for 106 yards and rushed for 62.
It’s worthy of noting because when Baker Mayfield plays, that’s usually how the former No. 1 overall pick operates.
Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins were the only projected skill-position regulars to play and DPJ, didn’t disappoint, nabbing a ball Keenum threw way behind him.
Peoples-Jones’ stock continues to be on the rise and watching how he fits into the offense when teamed with Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. will be a heavily covered story in the regular season.
