Wide Receivers: F
For a team that heavily favors the passing game, they sure don’t have the weapons one would expect. And for a team that dialed up 41 passing plays, they sure didn’t put up the numbers through the air one would anticipate.
Terrelle Pryor led the way with five receptions totaling 97 yards, though he didn’t receive any assistance around him. Corey Coleman was the next leading receiver in yards, catching four passes for 39 yards. After that, only Andrew Hawkins had a catch, just one for 20 yards.
So in the end, the Browns ran 41 passing plays, yet only three receivers had catches. They also totaled only 10 catches. This is incompetence at its finest.
The reasons for this are not completely the fault of the receivers, of course. But the inability to get open against a very poor secondary certainly contributed, as well as Coleman’s two drops. For whatever reason, a position that has been somewhat of a bright spot for the Browns this season completely laid an egg this week.
But at least Pryor can get along with everyone, even defenders who seek to remove his head. Him and Mike Mitchell had a friendly moment following Mitchell’s violent and uncalled for blow, lightening the mood a bit.
