Stud: David Njoku, Tight End
When all was said and done, David Njoku didn't have the best stat line in Week 10. He finished with 6 receptions -- which was tied with Amari Cooper for the most on Cleveland -- but he had only 58 yards compared to Cooper's 98. He didn't even score a touchdown the way Kareem Hunt or Elijah Moore did. He also had a costly drop inside the 10 that forced the Browns to kick a field goal rather than go for a touchdown.
Having said all of that, Cleveland wouldn't have won this game without Njoku. He was a huge part of the offensive gameplan and had a major hand in several of the team's scoring drives. The first big one came when the Browns were trailing 24-9 after Odell Beckham, Jr. scored a touchdown to extend the lead. Njoku converted a third-and-11 on the ensuing drive, even carrying a defender with him across the sticks.
That kept their drive alive and ended with Hunt running in a powerful touchdown. They pulled within seven here thanks to Watson running in a two-point conversion. Again, Baltimore extended its lead and again, Njoku responded. He was on the receiving end of another short pass that he turned into a 23-yard gain while dragging players again. Moore scored a touchdown not long after and it was a one-point game.
He added 11 more yards on the game-winning drive, which was another huge play. This time, Cleveland was facing a first-and-15 due to Hudson's false start. That made its second-down play more manageable and helped secure this crucial win.
