The Cleveland Browns defense fell apart in Week 2 but these offensive players shined in the loss to the New York Jets at First Energy Stadium.

The Cleveland Browns offense did enough to win the game Sunday against the Jets when they scored 30 points despite starting their backup quarterback. Anytime you score 30 or more points in the NFL you should expect to win most of those games. Cleveland imploded on defense and special teams and let it slip away.

Let’s look at three offensive players that shined and still deserve credit for how they played on Sunday.

No. 3: Jacoby Brissett, quarterback

In the Browns’ Week, 1 win against the Panthers Jacoby Brissett did just enough to get the win with the help of the running game and special teams. This week, it was a completely different story when it seemed like Brissett was a different player. He looked confident and seemed to trust both his offensive line and his receivers.

He did a great job extending plays with his legs while keeping his eyes downfield looking for a target to come open. Brissett wasn’t afraid to take off and pick up yards with his legs either if he wasn’t able to find a target quick enough.

Though he still needs to do this on a consistent basis it was really nice to see him put a game together like this. Hopefully, there are more games like this but Brissett did more than enough for the Browns to win.
