This is a continuation from Part 1 of our film review from the Browns vs. Texans game. In Part 2, we’ll look at five more plays. If you’re sick of the doom-and-gloom, we do finish off with two positive plays involving DE Myles Garrett, a bright spot from Sunday’s contest.
Play 8 – The Frustrating Tight End Screen
I’d be content if the Browns never ran this play again. For some reason, head coach Hue Jackson has an infatuation with making the tight end screen pass to TE David Njoku work. I understand that the real purpose of this play could actually be to set up something greater down the road (i.e. like the one week we got WR Kenny Britt deep out of a formation like this), but it’s still frustrating and Cleveland can’t execute it.
The Browns have trips tight ends on the right, with TE Seth DeValve and TE Randall Telfer being the lead blockers.
