Stud: Jarvis Landry
Jarvis Landry was making it pretty easy for him to be a dud before halftime after making an inexcusable error before halftime.
With the Browns backed up to their seven-yard line and taking over after the two-minute warning, Mayfield attempted a pass down the seam to Landry. Landry was wide open and would have scored a touchdown, but tried to run under the pass instead of turning his body for the catch. The pass bounced off his face mask and fell incomplete.
However, Landry was able to rebound in the second half, and ended up leading the Browns in receiving. The Browns first play from scrimmage in the second half was similar to the pass dropped in the first half, with Landry running a streak from the slot. Once again, Landry was wide open and scored a 48-yard touchdown.
Landry was also big in the Browns late drives, making catches in traffic and plays down the sideline. It was obvious that Landry has incredibly strong hands when he made a 16-yard catch in tight coverage on the Browns final drive, putting the offense within striking range of field goal range.
Although Landry could have had a monster game if he would have made the catch before halftime, he still put together a strong game. His plays were important in the second half, and he finished the game with five receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.
