Nick Chubb deserves more carries, so what is the problem?

Head coach Hue Jackson says team will use rookie more, but then nothing changes on game days.

Cleveland Browns rookie running back Nick Chubb has had a consistent season so far.

Consistent, as in he has had two or three carries in every game.

Chubb caught the NFL by surprise in Week 4 as he ripped off touchdown runs of 65 and 41 yards against the Oakland Raiders, part of a game that saw him rush for 105 yards on just three carries.

A day like that would seem to warrant more opportunities,...

Report: Browns WR Rod Streater out for season

Wide receiver Rod Streater fractured a bone in his neck in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers and will miss the season, ESPN.com’s Pat McManamon tweets. On the plus side, Streater will not need surgery and doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Streater was signed to a one-year deal last month following the Josh Gordon trade. The deal snapped a long layoff for the 30-year-old, who had not played in a regular season game since the ’16 season with the 49ers. Streater was on the roster...

Running Despite Darkness: a Cleveland Browns Film Breakdown

How the Cleveland Browns Run the Ball at a Numbers Disadvantage

Running the ball is much easier said than done. Coaches at every level talk about the importance of running the ball, but frequently end up in charge of teams where they, for example, throw the ball 47 times with a 2nd round rookie quarterback who clearly isn’t ready to carry such a load. Why? You’ve probably heard the phrase “run to daylight,” but in the NFL there typically isn’t a lot of “daylight” available. If...

Report: NaVorro Bowman to work out for Browns

Free agent linebacker NaVorro Bowman is in the hunt for a new job, and he has at least one interested party. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the longtime San Francisco 49er is set to work out for the Cleveland Browns this week. Bowman was a four-time All-Pro with the 49ers, and widely recognized as one of the game’s best linebackers before ACL, MCL, and Achilles injuries robbed him of the bulk of both the 2014 and 2016 seasons. He was last seen in 2017 with the Oakland Raiders, where...

Baker Mayfield expected to play Week 7 despite ankle injury

Baker Mayfield suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that may have played a role in his poor performance, but it does not sound like anything too serious.

Baker Mayfield will reportedly not miss time with ankle injury

Quarterback hurt himself on scramble against the Chargers, but injury is not believed to be serious.

The Cleveland Browns loss on Sunday was truly an ugly affair.

But it could have been much worse.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield injured his ankle when he slipped on the first-down marker at the end of a scramble in the first quarter. Even though he did not miss a play, the ankle was noticeably bothering Mayfield throughout the rest of the game.

Luckily for Mayfield and the Browns, the injury...

Three takeaways from Browns’ catastrophic Week 6 loss to Chargers

It only counts as one loss, and there’s a lot to learn from it.

No, the Browns’ season isn’t over after one disaster performance. After all, it only counts as one loss.

The catastrophe at FirstEnergy Stadium in Week 6 was disappointing, sure, but maybe it was a wake-up call. Maybe it highlighted some weaknesses the team was downplaying while competing but struggling against mediocre teams over the last three weeks.

Oakland now has five losses and hasn’t resembled decent in any of...

Browns offense continues to be stuck in neutral

Sunday’s effort against Chargers was dismal, but it only continued a disturbing trend.

Cleveland Browns fans knew there were going to be days like Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Even if they did not want to admit it.

The Browns offense was never able to get anything going in the 38-14 loss as they were just six-of-16 on third down, had just 317 yards of total offense, and looked completely out-of-sync for much (most?) of the game.

It was disappointing but not exactly surprising,...

Browns vs. Chargers Final Score: Cleveland crumbles in 38-14 loss to Los Angeles

This was a game to forget.

Well, the Cleveland Browns didn’t play in another overtime thriller in Week 6. Instead, they got thoroughly man-handled on their home field by the Los Angeles Chargers, falling 38-14.

Things started out rough, although the Browns kept pinning the Chargers inside their own 10-yard line. But they were unable to take advantage of positive field position after getting a couple stops. Eventually, Melvin Gordon and the Chargers’ run game blew through the Browns...
