Week 7 . . . Browns @ Jaguars
Just when you think things are going your way, you lay an egg. Not a regular egg mind you, a dinosaur egg. As well as the Browns played the prior week against the Steelers, that’s how bad they played against the previously winless Jaguars. The Browns couldn’t run the ball nor could they stop the Jaguars running game. Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West combined for a measly 69 yards rushing. Dennard Robinson, a converted Michigan quarterback, single handedly almost doubled their production by rushing for 127 yards.
Brian Hoyer had his worse game as a professional. Although he threw for a net 197 yards he couldn’t put it into the end zone. Making matters worse, rookie Blake Bortles threw 3 interceptions (2 by Tashaun Gibson) but the Browns were unable to capitalize on them.
The Browns were, once again, in an all too familiar position. Alone in last place of the AFC North.
