This game was a nightmare from the start. The Browns offense was stagnant, the defense was a turnstile and the special teams unit was pitiful to say the least. The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns 38-6.
The Browns offense seemed to be focused on running to set up the pass and just nothing worked out. The run game was attempting to force the ball down Baltimore’s throat and nothing would give. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt combined for 23 carries for 132 yards. The passing game was nonexistent as Baker Mayfield went 21/39 with 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Odell Beckham Jr. was nowhere to be found as David Njoku and Jarvis Landry did their best to carry the offense. This was an extremely disappointing outing for the Browns shiny new offense.
The injury riddled defense definitely missed their key players as they could do nothing to stop the Ravens electric offense. Myles Garrett had a fumble recovery but Adrian Clayborn was the defensive player of the game for the Browns. The defense allowed 284 yards through the air and an additional 107 on the ground. Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews showed out for Baltimore.
The special teams unit was easily the worst unit of the team this week. Punter Jamie Gillian fumbled on a punt that led to Ravens points. Austin Seibert missed both of his kicks, an extra point and a field goal. This group needs to improve significantly if the team wants any sort of success. Cody Parkey may be getting a call soon.
