QB Case Keenum 66 100% 17-of-24 (70.8%) for 176 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 1 fumble. 5 rushes, 15 yards.
  • I’m a believer in Baker Mayfield nonetheless, however given his accidents this yr, it does make you surprise in hindsight whether or not the Browns might have made the postseason if Case Keenum was beginning. Granted, one might level at Keenum’s unhealthy choices this week (fumble resulting in a landing, and interception within the pink zone) as explanation why it wouldn’t have labored, however total, he performed the function of sport supervisor effectively sufficient once more. In a variety of these shut video games that Cleveland fell quick on, that’s all they actually wanted.

  • Anthony Schwartz dropped one fast slant that hit him proper within the fingers this week. He’ll have to endure a little bit of an offseason transformation to see if he’s worthy of a big function in 2022.

  • Jarvis Landry completed the season with 52 catches for 570 yards and 2 touchdowns. The group faces a tricky resolution with him; that manufacturing just isn’t price the kind of contract he’s getting, however he’s additionally by far their most dependable receiver nonetheless on a group that basically must improve the place.
  • Demetric Felton caught his second landing of the season. One of the extra irritating issues wanting again in 2022 is seeing how a lot this group struggled at large receiver, and but the potential of Felton wasn’t utilized extra on these fast display sort of performs. I do know he had a couple of drops too, however you needed extra out of him.

  • It was a comparatively quiet day for the tight ends. Austin Hooper led the group in snaps, however didn’t report a catch. He completed the season with 38 catches for 345 yards and 3 touchdowns. One would possibly say that it’s price contemplating kicking him to the curb and re-signing David Njoku as an alternative, however wanting on the lifeless cap area the group would soak up, it’s principally pointless to chop Hooper.
  • Harrison Bryant practically caught one other landing go, however mis-timed or came upon his soar ultimately zone.
