    • If the Raiders can establish the run the Browns could struggle in the play action passing game.

    • John Greco, Joel Bitonio and Jordan Cameron all with huge blocks.
  • Browns play calling and line play leading to very little in the run game.
    • After big play Browns again forced to kick a field goal.
    • Browns 6 Raiders 0
    • This game seems like a replica of the Jaguars game.
  • First play of Browns next possession Browns go double play action pass deep to Travis Benjamin.
    • Ball not thrown well, Benjamin breaks up the easy interception.
    • Hoyer’s deep ball continues to flutter and not be on a line.


The Browns seem to be dominating the game but are only up 6 – 0. The Browns will likely punt on the first play of the second quarter. The Raiders decision to not run the ball often is their biggest issue. Most runs have given the Browns trouble but they have gone away from it. The Browns have gotten good field position and a couple big plays. Besides that the lack of deep threat is showing. The run game is bad to pathetic thanks to the offensive line.
