3. Cleveland Browns rookie leads the way, again
Last week, the Browns got a huge boost from rookie Anthony Schwartz who had 69 yards on three receptions with a long of 44. That was the biggest play of the game for the Browns, although David Njoku came close with a 43-yarder as well against the Chiefs.
For the second week in a row, Cleveland’s biggest offensive gain came courtesy of a rookie. Sixth-round pick Demetric Felton had a game to remember and social media was alive with the question “how did this guy last until Round 6?”
Felton ended up with just two receptions one for 18 yards and the other went 33 yards for a touchdown. His score came on a short pass from Baker Mayfield where he dodged one would-be tackler after another en route to his first score at the NFL level. It also broke the 14-14 tie and the Browns never looked back from there.
With Jarvis Landry going down, Felton stepped up more than anyone else. Not only did he have that big score but he led the team with 51 yards despite only catching two passes. He also added 41 yards on kick returns and 22 on punt returns which gave him 114 all-purpose yards. Not a bad outing at all for the rookie.
