Browns Lost 2nd Preseason Game To Commanders



Browns Lost 2nd Preseason Game To Commanders

Deshaun Watson seemed at ease during his opening drive of the year.

On Friday at Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Browns fell to the Commanders, 17-15, in their second preseason game.

The Browns took the field after a 68-minute delay caused by rain and lightning, starting with the majority of their regulars, including quarterback Deshaun Watson, who played for just one drive but showed poise by directing the offence well into the end zone. Watson ran the ball three times for a total of 20 yards and completed all three of his pass attempts for 12 yards.

However, the Browns were unable to convert on a fourth-and-goal, thus the drive came to a close without any points.

However, there were some encouraging signs, like Watson’s scuffling and WR Elijah Moore’s 18-yard run. Moore also caught a pass for 6 yards, but after the starters left the game, Moore hobbled back to the locker room while being helped by trainers because of a rib injury.

X-rays were taken of Moore in the locker area. The findings were unfavourable.

The Browns’ defensive starters established the tone early on by scoring the game’s opening points on a safety resulting from a Commanders’ holding infraction in the end zone. However, the Commanders came back with touchdowns on their following two drives, and they led 14-2 at the break. Two passes were intercepted by Browns S Ronnie Hickman on Friday night. His first interception was on Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett right before halftime, and his second was on Commanders quarterback Jake Fromm in the fourth quarter.

QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson led the offence down the field to a 46-yard field goal that K Cade York missed to open the second half. On his second attempt, Thompson-Robinson completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to WR David Bell to conclude an eight-play, 75-yard drive. At the end of the day, Thompson-Robinson completed 9 of 10 throws for 102 yards, a 102 passer rating, and a touchdown.

When Kellen Mond’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Mike Harley Jr. was made with less than two minutes remaining in the contest, the Browns had an opportunity to equalise the score. To tie the game, the Browns needed to score a 2-point conversion, but Mond’s pass on that play was incomplete.

On August 17, the Browns will return to action when they play the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
