No. 1 – Jacoby Brissett

Of the six games the Cleveland Browns have had, Jacoby Brissett has been fantastic in four of them. He missed quite a few open throws in the Week 1 win vs. the Panthers, but he was out of sorts Sunday with a fierce pass rush and tight coverage from the Patriots.

Brissett finished the day 21 of 45 for 266 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. The first pick was on the second play of the game which really set the tone for the rest of the day. A 46.6 percent completion percentage also won’t win you many games in the NFL.

Bill Belichick did what he always does by taking the team’s best weapon away. The Patriots had eight or nine guys in the box and didn’t allow Nick Chubb to get going. On top of that, his corners played extremely tight in press coverage and the Browns receivers could not get separation.

At the end of the day, Brissett is a backup quarterback for a reason. Don’t you remember last year in games where a team forced Baker Mayfield to throw the ball to win? That didn’t end well, and it was a similar story in Week 6.

Brissett is a true professional and will shake this win off and be prepared for the Ravens on Sunday. Unfortunately, it won’t get any easier as the Ravens thrive in tight man coverage and bring a ton of pressure to make quarterbacks uncomfortable. Brissett and Stefanski both need to be better if the Browns want to have any chance next week.
