Offensive big plays
Deshaun Watson only completing nine passes is not great but what is great, however, is seeing the Browns generate some big plays. Watching Cooper take advantage of bad coverages and one ugly tackle was a treat. He’s not the Justin Jefferson-type receiver so many claimed he would be, b Cooper has proven me right when I said he was the best receiver the team has had in years. Of course, the other big playmaker besides Watson and Cooper was Nick Chubb, who just churned the Washington defense up over and over again.
An intercepting affair
Some men are just not happy with one, and that was the story for Grant Delpit, who picked off Carson Wentz not once but twice. Wentz looked awful and it’s hard to justify saying this man deserves another shot to start for an NFL team.
A Captain’s effort
I’m less impressed with Myles Garrett getting one and a half sacks against a bad Washington offensive line. He’s faster than most offensive linemen, he should have a sack and a half a game. No, what I’m impressed about is his eight-tackle game. He was active, he pursued the ball carrier, and he did well-ish sealing the edge when they tried to run his way. It wasn’t a “dominant” outing against the run, the Browns did give up 143 yards after all, but it was easily Garrett’s best game of the season against the run.
