Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 12 vs CIN (2 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Britt was used sparsely but he made the most of his two targets, catching them both. In the second quarter, on 3rd-and-12, Britt made a 14-yard reception to give his team a new set of downs. Later, in the fourth quarter, Britt had a fantastic 38-yard catch-and-run where he outran several defenders to pick up extra yardage.
2017 Week 11 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Britt wasn't even heard from until he caught two short passes in succession during the fourth quarter. Britt failed to do much while Corey Coleman was sidelined with a broken hand. With Coleman back now, Britt will become an afterthought in the Cleveland offense.
2017 Week 10 vs DET (3 / 2 / 38 / 1 rec)
Britt was demoted to second string receiver before the game but he didn't show any ill effects as he posted one of his best games as a Brown. Britt scored his second touchdown of the season on the Browns' second drive of the game. He caught a short pass and then broke a Nevin Lawson tackle for a 19-yard score. Britt could have had a bigger game but he saw a 29-yard reception nullified by an offensive holding penalty. On the final drive of the game, Britt drew an end zone target from DeShone Kizer, but the ball was thrown much too high for him to have a chance at the catch. Much maligned this season for not appearing to be fully invested at times, Britt even showed some fire in the second half when he fired his helmet to the ground after Cody Kessler missed him on a pass.
2017 Week 7 vs TEN (5 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Britt returned to action after a two-week absence but was a non-factor. He caught two short passes and got up gingerly after the second catch. He checked himself out of the game afterwards but returned on the following play. He did get open down the left sideline during the fourth quarter but he was overthrown by Cody Kessler. It would have gone for a big gain had the two connected. Britt later injured himself again, this time in overtime. He had a deep target bounce off of his hands and left the game after the play. He was called questionable to return by the team and was not seen again. Whether it's the season-long knee issue or his more recent groin strain that was dogging him, it is clear he was playing at less than 100%.
2017 Week 4 vs CIN (8 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec)
It was another rough day at the office for Britt, who has not acquitted himself with his new team very well. For the second straight week, Britt saw a catchable ball bounce off of his hands and into a defender's for an interception. That wasn't Britt's only mistake. He drew a false start penalty on the third play of the game. He had Pacman Jones beat on a route on the team's second drive, only to slip while coming back to the pass, which prevented him from making the catch. His best play came on a 26-yard contested catch down the middle of the field which saw him outmuscle a defender for the ball and tack on some extra yardage after the catch. Britt earned an end zone target from Kevin Hogan on the last drive of the game but the pass was broken up by the defender.
2017 Week 3 vs IND (10 / 3 / 54 / 1 rec)
Britt's final stat line looks solid but he had another poor showing for the Browns in Week 3. He dropped at least three catchable balls, with one resulting in an interception after a pass glanced off his fingertips and into a defender's arms. Earlier in the game he had a pass ripped out of his arms by a defender which resulted in an incompletion. It was a play that Britt should have made. Britt did make a few good plays, including a 38-yard reception down the left sideline in which he burned corner back Pierre Desir for an easy grab. Britt scored his first touchdown with the Browns in the fourth quarter after fending off defensive pass interference to make a falling catch in the end zone. Upon viewing the replay, there's a good chance he went out of bounds before securing the catch but the Colts failed to challenge the ruling on the field, allowing the touchdown to stand. With Corey Coleman out for at least two months, Britt led the Browns in targets in Week 3.
2017 Week 2 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Britt's only catch came on a short screen in the first quarter. He later had a catch nullified after he was called for offensive pass interference. It was a good call as he clearly pushed off of the defender. He appeared to be having trouble getting open down the field at times.
2017 Week 1 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Britt's sluggish preseason carried over to the regular season against the Steelers. Britt made only one catch, a 13-yard grab on an out route in the third quarter. He and DeShone Kizer also had a miscommunication on a route in the second quarter as Kizer threw the ball toward the sideline while Britt went down the middle of the field. Britt also committed a bad drop on the team's second-to-last drive of the game. He was wide open on the play and would have picked up at least 20 yards, but he tried to turn and run with the ball before securing the catch.
