Week 8: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer had an awful game against the soft Jaguars' D last week - 16/41 for 215 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -18 yards. Though Andrew Hawkins did rebound from his awful 0-fer game of two weeks ago (nine targets for 5/112/0 receiving), the lack of passing scores depressed his upside (and everyone else on the Browns' team). Jordan Cameron had six targets during the game but converted just 1/5/0. The Cleveland offense crashed and burned in Jacksonville, friends. With Johnny Manziel waiting in the wings, if Hoyer struggles again against the bottom-of-the-barrel Raiders (after giving the bottom-of-the-barrel Jaguars their first win of the season) it may be time for the anticipated debut of Manziel. The Browns' offense is in a funk entering Week 8, friends. Speaking of the bottom-of-the-barrel, the Raiders' already-shaky pass D (ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 229.5 net yards allowed per game, but with 11 passing scores given up vs. just three interceptions (tied-24th in the NFL) and a mere six sacks (31st) generated) just lost their starting S Usama Young to ACL and MCL tears in a knee, leaving backup Brandion Ross to get a first start in this game. Uh oh, Raiders' fans. Carson Palmer threw 22/31 for 242 net yards, two TDs and one pick at the Black Hole last week (one sack taken for -11 yards); two weeks back Philip Rivers threw 22/34 for 307 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions, with one sack taken for -6 yards. Hoyer has an opportunity to bounce back at home against the ailing Raiders - we'll see if he can capitalize on the situation.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 54 / 0 rec)

Austin made a few nice catches in traffic in Sunday and remains solidified as the Browns WR2. Austin was heavily covered until snagging a 31-yarder in the first half to contribute to a touchdown drive. He then split the defense late in the game, taking the ball 23 yards and deep into Titans territory.

2014 Week 6 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

Miles Austin played the "big outside receiver" role for the Browns on Sunday, making a few athletic catches to give the Browns' news sets of downs. Austin showed great hip and upper body flexibility during his 17-yard catch early against the Steelers, turning his body for a pass that was a bit high while securing the ball through the entire catch. Austin shows very strong hands, as most of his catches are with arms extended and the ball far away from him. While he did not find the end zone, Austin did receive two redzone targets on Sunday.

2014 Week 7 vs JAX (8 / 3 / 53 / 0 rec)

The first of Miles Austin's three receptions in this game came early on during the team's very first drive. Austin caught a quick out against off coverage for a first down. Hoyer missed Austin on a crossing route later in the first quarter, before the two connected for his longest reception of the game on another crossing route. This one came after play action when he was wide open down the field. On 3rd-and-4 late in the third quarter, Austin came up with an important reception over the middle of the field for a first down.
