2012 Game Summaries
Week 4 - Like Little, Norwood could only cash in on 4 of his 10 targets, but he had the opposite problem. When open, Norwood caught the ball (often with his body) and collected YAC. But tougher catches with a defender in the vicinity were a different story. In traffic, Norwood didnít demonstrate a ďmy ballĒ mentality. On a quick crosser, he lost a ball that was ruled incomplete but looked perilously close to a fumble. He dropped a third-down pass in the third quarter that forced the Browns to settle for a Phil Dawson field goal. Down 7 on his final drive, Weeden gunned one to Norwood in the end zone. Ed Reed tipped the ball but it was catchable and bounced off the receiverís shoulder pads.
Week 5 - Jordan Norwood was a good possession receiver for the Browns on Sunday but his stat line might inflate his actual performance on the day. Norwood had a lot of catches on the final drive of the game in garbage time as the Giants were playing soft zone and gave up a lot of underneath routes to Norwood. Norwood made a lot of catches on short underneath patterns. Norwood displayed amazing concentration after catching a pass that had been tipped at the line and flung wildly into the air. He made some athletic grabs over the middle on slants and deep inís but some were against very soft zone defense. Weeden leaned on Norwood the most on Sunday to move the chains but this kind of performance suited the game style and cannot be relied upon every week.
