The Cleveland Browns were frustrated in a loss to the Falcons in Week 4 and are taking things out on the Chargers, as the offense is firing on all cylinders

Week 4 was one to forget for the Cleveland Browns, and they seem intent on doing just that. A loss to the Atlanta Falcons dropped them to 2-2 on the season and sent them into the toughest stretch of their schedule with very little momentum.

However, they decided to put that behind them and swing things back in their favor with a hot start against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Browns got the ball to start the game and Nick Chubb ran a 41-yard touchdown to put them up 7-0.

Their defense then held and Jacoby Brissett went to work once again. A methodical drive moved them right back into scoring range and ended with a touchdown to Amari Cooper — who hauled it in from 11 yards out.

Amari Cooper involved early

Last week against Atlanta, the Browns struggled to get Amari Cooper involved. He finished with just one reception on the day which helped explain why the offense couldn’t get things moving.

This week, they made sure to get him involved early as Brissett looked his way on each of the first two drives, and the result was 14 points.

Browns defense doing its part

While the offense is having its way, the defense is doing what it needs to as well. After forcing a turnover on downs, they gave up a 71-yard run to Austin Ekeler. Normally, this would have spelled disaster for this unit but they collected themselves and held the Chargers to a field goal.
