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 (9 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Hawkins struggled on Sunday. In the second quarter, Hawkins sat down on his route and quarterback Brian Hoyer rifled a pass to him but Hawkins had cut away from the pass as Hoyer released it. This led to an interception that was luckily called back. Furthermore, on a crucial third and four early in the game, Hawkins missed a block on a defensive back that would have kept the drive alive. On multiple occasions, Brian Hoyer threw too high when targeting Hawkins, which while is not Hawkins' fault, negatively affects his value as a wide receiver. Hawkins did receive an endzone target, but failed to convert it to a touchdown.

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

Hawkins was held without a catch for the first time this season. With a big lead, the Browns focused more on the run than ever before, limiting Hawkins' opportunities to make plays. With three easy matchups upcoming where the Browns are poised to have big leads, as well as Jordan Cameron's emergence, Hawkins may not be such a sure thing as many presumed. With his lack of touchdown upside, weeks such as these hurt.

2014 Week 7 vs JAX (9 / 5 / 112 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)

Hawkins wasn't targeted on the Browns' first two drives of the game. He then caught a curl route for a first down just before the end of the first quarter. Hawkins converted a big third down in the second quarter when he created separation against man coverage over the middle of the field. A few plays later, Hawkins converted another first down on a quick slant route. With the Browns backed up close to their own goalline, Hoyer found Hawkins over the middle of the field for a huge gain. The small receiver evaded a tackle before sprinting down the seam for more than 50 yards. That play lead to a punt however, and the Browns would only get the ball back when the game had been decided. Hawkins added a curl route for 10 yards as the Jaguars coverage slackened.
