Schobert has proven to be a strong run defender in his first year starting with the Browns, but opposing quarterbacks have learned they can beat him when they get him isolated in pass coverage.
Hogan did his best dinking, dunking and occasional running, and that led to a crisper Cleveland offense overall.
The speedy edge rusher and athletic phenom will finally line up Sunday for the winless Browns as they face the New York Jets, a team tabbed to be one of the league's worst but has surprised and is showing signs of life.
Hogan's 21-yard touchdown pass would not have been possible, however, without an incredible diving effort by rookie tight end David Njoku. "There are a lot of good, good people there and great relationships I was able to make over the last couple of years being there". "It was a fade route. We're seeing that with some of the young guys that are playing and making plays for us". Josh and I have been working on that route all week. I think that I would do the team a disservice if I were worrying about outside things. I'm excited to see him play.
Josh McCown was 22 of 31 for 224 yards, but threw an interception and was sacked five times (!) for a loss of 40 yards.
Back when the regular season schedules were announced months ago, fans of the New York Jets circled their calendars for this Week 5 matchup.
From early Sunday morning: Should Hogan play if Kizer doesn't win? "I always want to make more plays, have more effect on the outcome of the game, but as many as they give me I'll take and I'm just going to try to do my best to make plays out there". Hogan won't suddenly find a groove with the pass defenses of the Texans, Vikings, Lions, Jaguars, Bengals and Chargers in five of the next six Browns games. We're going to execute and do our job.
The Cleveland Browns set a record after their latest loss in Week 4. On third-and-goal from the 3, however, a botched pitch from Kizer to running back Isaiah Crowell was recovered by Jets linebacker Freddie Bishop at the Jets 17.
McCown hugged Jackson after the game, "to let him know I was thinking about him and that I loved him and to hang in there".
Kizer has the confidence of the coaching staff in Cleveland, but that doesn't help much when he's completing just 51.4 percent of his throws.
The Browns are taking on the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The score was 10-7 Jets and 12:56 remained when the Jets took over at their 3-yard line after the defense had stuffed a fourth-and-2 run by the Browns.
"I yanked the first one a little bit", Gonzalez said. "I have never felt that at all".
