2. The offense returned
One thing that was a parent on Monday was the fact that the offense couldn’t get anything going. Sunday was full of thunderstorms which caused them to move that day’s practice forward and the rain continued throughout the day on Monday.
That left the ground soggy and wet and had a lot to do with the offense not being able to find a rhythm. It also had something to do with the fact of players are dropping passes a baker Mayfield has sailed a ball over the head of a wide-open Odell Beckham, Jr. at one point.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski had said that while the weather was a factor he didn’t excuse his team’s performance. He expected his receivers the pull passes in and let them know that the day was unacceptable. They responded on Tuesday as everything looked much more crisp.
Mayfield’s passes were more on target and he showed a great connection with tight end Austin Hooper. Another tight end got in on the action as rookie Harrison Bryan did well when he was on the field with Case Keenum we are in the second team.
Jarvis Landry was also back on the field after sitting out Monday. He did really well catching multiple passes from Mayfield and his fellow starter, Odell Beckham Jr., also seemed to be on his game. On top of that, the running game was working and Kareem hunt looked every bit as good as he did during their first practice on Friday of last week. Nick Chubb was out but Hunt reminded them how deep they are at the position.
