For a while, it seemed like it might never happen, not with the way Brandon Weeden distributed the ball (or simply struggled).
They have conquered the elusive 100-yard receiving game.
Thanks to Josh Gordon’s six-catch, 116-yard performance, the Browns are starting to resemble a real NFL offense. This is due in no small part to Brandon Weeden’s ability to throw the ball downfield, but something must also be said about Gordon’s talent.
Despite being taken in the supplemental draft and facing a steep learning curve, Gordon has only improved as the season has progressed. On Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, he was constantly open (the space between him and his defenders was laughably large at times), making it especially easy for Weeden to keep throwing his way. Gordon’s day included a 44-yard touchdown catch down the sideline, which only furthers the argument in the case that he might just be the big-play receiver the Browns have been searching for.
With four games left to play, does Gordon have another 100-yard performance in him?
