The Cleveland Browns are 2-1 after three weeks of football but how are the players performing?
The Cleveland Browns are 2-1 through their easiest stretch of the schedule and could really give themselves a shot at the playoffs if they were to go 3-1 over this stretch. The players are performing very well as well, helping the team stay on course even if they don’t have their embattled and disgraced starting quarterback in Deshaun Watson.
Jacoby Brissett has been performing well against more middling defenses, and some fans have started to call for him to be the starter going forward, even after Watson returns. While Watson is as gross as they come, Brissett is taking advantage of bad and lacking defenses. It’s important to see how he performs against playoff teams. Then and only then, will we allow ourselves to get caught up in the quarterback controversy of it all.
But how well is Brissett doing? How well is the team doing individually? For that, let’s take a look at the PFF scores for the Browns after three weeks.
Here’s a quick key for some aid.
0.0 = no movement.
NL – Not Listed the week before.
DNP – Did not play
- Corey Bojorquez – 78.6 (NL)
- Cade York – 62.7 (NL)
Corey Bojorquez had a great game all things considered. The Pittsburgh Steelers offense could only really score if they were perfect on every drive and sometimes that was the case. Putting them back a few times as Bojorquez did was fantastic. Though he did have a bad punt that may have been due to a Steelers player getting their hand on it (with an asset from the wind) but he was mostly great.
Cade York missed his second extra point in as many games. The wind was a factor on Thursday, of course, but this was always a concern with any kicker in Cleveland Browns stadium. Eventually, they’re going to have to prove they can kick in the wind that the stadium produces, and very rarely does anyone excel at it.
