The Cleveland Browns turned it over on the second play of the game, and things didn’t get any easier on either side of the ball after.

The Cleveland Browns have gone from sliding down a hill quickly to free-falling with no signs of slowing down. Like the 2021 season where the blowout loss at New England really changed the season, the 38-15 loss at home in Week 6 really sets the team back.

Through six weeks, the Browns have not played a great team yet. The Patriots had Baily Zappe as their starting quarterback, the Chargers were extremely beaten up, and the Panthers, Jets, Steelers, and Falcons are still all considered bottom-tier teams in the league.

At this point, the fans are starting to lose patience, and the team is struggling to stay focused. Remember, originally Deshaun Watson was set to return for the Week 7 matchup vs. the Baltimore Ravens, but instead, it will be Jacoby Brissett coming off his worst game as a Brown.

Here are 3 Cleveland Browns who really struggled on Sunday in the team’s worst loss yet of the 2022 season.

No. 3 – Grant Delpit

One Cleveland secondary player that continues to get exposed is Grant Delpit. After an injury kept him on the sideline as a rookie, this is his third year in the league or second year on the field and expectations were high. Delpit slipped into round two of the draft, and the Browns got a steal, or so they thought. However, it’s starting to look like other teams just knew what they were doing.

In Sunday’s game alone, Delpit slipped in coverage giving up an easy touchdown to the tight end, and he also completely whiffed on an end around that also led to a touchdown. The bad news, this isn’t the first game that Delpit has looked bad.

The secondary has struggled with communication all year, and when you look at busted plays, you typically see that Delpit is involved. At this point, it appears he is thinking too much on the field. He needs to trust his gut and just play. Unfortunately, he is playing scared and could find himself as a backup soon.
