NFL Week 2 grades: Eagles, Bills earn high marks for dominating performances on ‘Monday Night Football’

There’s a cause that Cleveland is named the ‘Factory of Sadness.’ The Browns arguably have extra unbelievable losses than some other staff in NFL historical past they usually added one other one to their heartbreaking whole on Sunday by blowing a 30-17 result in the New York Jets in simply 85 seconds.

With 1:55 left to play on Sunday, Nick Chubb scored a landing to place the Browns up 30-17 and it seemed like Cleveland was going to coast to victory, however if you’re speaking in regards to the Browns, there is no such factor as coasting to victory.

In a surprising flip of occasions, the Jets scored two touchdowns simply 60 seconds aside, which allowed them to steal a 31-30 win. If you are questioning how unbelievable the loss was, here is your reply.

For probably the most half, the Browns performed a powerful sport, however they could not overcome SIX monumental errors, which all befell over the ultimate two minutes.

The greatest one got here from Chubb, who may have sealed the win if he had merely fallen to the bottom as an alternative of scoring a TD with 1:55 left. If he had performed that, the sport would have been over as a result of the run gave Cleveland a primary down and the Jets had zero timeouts remaining.

We’ve seen working backs go down on the 1-yard line earlier than, however Chubb did not do it right here. Even if he had gone out of bounds, the Browns nonetheless may have merely kneeled the ball three straight instances to choose up the win.

Chubb’s gaffe wasn’t the one large mistake the Browns made. Last week’s hero for the Browns, Cade York, positively wasn’t the hero this week. The Browns would have had 31 factors on the finish of the sport, however York missed the additional level following Chubb’s landing. The missed kick left the Browns in entrance by simply 13 factors, which helped open the door for the Jets comeback.

The errors by York and Chubb would not have mattered if the Browns protection did not surrender a protracted landing, which brings us to mistake quantity three: The Browns one way or the other left Corey Davis extensive open for a 66-yard landing.

(Note: Ignore the NFL’s info within the tweet, it was a 66-yard rating, not 76.)

Even after Joe Flacco hit Davis for the rating with 1:22 left to chop Cleveland’s result in 30-24, the Browns nonetheless may have clinched the win by recovering the Jets’ onside kick, however as an alternative, we received mistake quantity 4. On the Jets’ onside kick, the ball bounced off the fingers of Amari Cooper and into the fingers of New York’s Justin Hardee.

Nine performs after the restoration, the Jets would rating the go-ahead landing with a 15-yard cross from Flacco to Garrett Wilson (Giving up the TD was mistake quantity 5).

Even after falling behind, the Browns STILL had an opportunity to win. With six seconds left, the Browns had been at their very own 46 they usually wanted roughly eight to 10 yards to offer York a practical shot of constructing a subject purpose. However, York by no means received an opportunity to win the sport as a result of Jacoby Brissett threw an interception for mistake quantity six.

It was a complete meltdown in a sport that the Browns had no enterprise shedding. Their ‘F-‘ efficiency over the ultimate two minutes utterly overshadowed the truth that they really performed fairly good soccer for the higher a part of three quarters.

Alright, let’s get to the grades for each sport from Week 2. If you are trying for a deeper dive on the Chiefs’ wild 27-24 win over the Chargers that was performed on Thursday, you should definitely click on right here.
