Undisciplined. Mistake-prone. Just downright awful.
These Cleveland Browns looked a lot like THOSE Cleveland Browns — the ones the fast-growing bandwagon of Browns fans thought , or at least hoped, had been left far back in the rearview mirror.The most hyped team over the NFL offseason racked up 18 penalties for 182 yards in Sunday’s season opener, while star-in-the-making quarterback Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter.The Browns lost 43-13 to Tennessee to drop to 1-19-1 in openers since 1999.“You all can crown them if you want to crown them,” Titans tight end Delanie Walker said. “We still have to play football.”With Mayfield entering his second season, and with newly acquired receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and with a new coach (Freddie Kitchens) and the momentum from a strong finish to 2018, Cleveland became the trendy pick to buck decades of awfulness and win its division Britton Colquitt Jersey , and maybe even more.Instead, the first game ended in front of a mostly empty home stadium, with the deficit swelling to more than four touchdowns; it was the first Cleveland loss of 30-plus points since 2015.Nothing went right.“We lost our discipline and we lost our composure, but it is one game … .” Kitchens said.And that is about all Browns fans had to be thankful for after Week 1.In case you missed it, here are some other topics people were talking about on the opening Sunday of the 2019 season: Although Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes won the NFL’s MVP award for 2018, he didn’t lead the league in passing yardage. In 2019, he’s projected to make it happen.Caesers Entertainment has installed Mahomes as a 7/2 favorite to throw for more passing yardage than any other quarterback Tyrod Taylor Jersey , even though Caesers has taken receiver Tyreek Hill off the board regarding the odds to lead the league in receiving yardage.Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who led all passers in 2018 with 5,129 yards, has 12/1 odds, likely due to the departure of Antonio Brown.Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is 11/2, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is 7/1, and Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is 7/1. Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 9/1 Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is 10/1. Rams quarterback Jared Goff is 12/1.Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who led the league in passing yardage in 2017 but who dropped to ninth in 2019, has 16/1 odds.
