The Cleveland Browns snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Bengals on MNF. Here are three offensive players that balled out in the big win.

Winning is the elixir to cure all ills. And the Cleveland Browns got a heaping dose of that elixir in their Monday Night showcase against the Cincinnati Bengals. Which was sorely needed because the Browns had an immense amount of ills heading into their primetime contest.

With their backs squarely against the wall, the Browns played, by far, their best game of the 2022 season. In a game that was close early on, Cleveland was able to separate themselves by being the more physical and fundamentally sound team. The offense took a while to get going, but once they did it was off to the races.

The Browns were firing on all cylinders in the second half and proved to be too much for Cincinnati to overcome. Here are three offensive players that shined on MNF.

Offensive standout No. 3: Amari Cooper

Monday night’s game versus Cincinnati did not go according to the game script for Amari Cooper. Anyone that had Cooper throwing an interception before he even caught a pass on their bingo card needs to come forward and accept their prize. But credit to Cooper, he was able to put the unfortunate start behind him and go have himself a stellar game.

The ill-fated interception by Cooper came on the second drive of the night. The eight-year pro was able to put the disastrous turnover behind him and get to work. On the Browns’ fourth possession of the night, Cooper made his presence felt, snagging two receptions for 47 yards. The second of which set the Browns up in the red zone, and the drive ended with Cleveland’s first touchdown of the evening.

Cooper caught all three of his second-half targets, including a four-yard touchdown reception that saw the receiver put cornerback Tre Flowers in a blender on an inside sell-to-back pylon fade route. However, it was Cooper’s last catch of the night, a 53-yard diving reception that will serve as the receiver’s highlight of the night.

In total, Cooper caught five of his seven targets for 131 yards and a touchdown. Week in and week out, Cooper proves to be the WR1 that the Browns have been searching for. Expect more of the same in the games to come.
