In this week’s film study of this past Sunday’s Browns vs. Steelers game, let’s take a look at an area of concern on the punt protection unit on special teams. We’re going to look at the team’s first three punts to see what went wrong.
1st Punt

On the first punt, No. 54 (LB L.J. Fort) lined up behind No. 44 (LB Tyler Matakevich) who ends up blocking the punt. Pre-snap, long snapper Charley Hughlett points at Ford two times. After the snap, he gives a slight chip to Matakevich, but mentally looks like he’s set on blocking Fort the entire way. RB Matthew Dayes, the team’s new personal protector this year, is also keyed in on Fort.
We know that there was a miscommunication between these two.
