Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs LAC (9 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
As has been the case of late, Landry and Baker Mayfield struggled to connect with one another. For the third straight week, Landry saw plenty of targets but was only able to finish with two catches, both of which came in the first half of the game. This is the third consecutive game where he failed to convert more than 50% of his targets into catches. Some of his struggles can be attributed to excellent coverage from the Chargers, who did a great job limiting the Cleveland passing attack. Landry was a popular target in the red zone on the first drive of the second quarter as he drew two red zone targets. The first was thrown too low and Baker Mayfield was hit as he threw on the second, which caused the ball to fall well short of Landry. In the third quarter, Landry dropped a pass when he attempted a one-handed catch. It appeared he could have gotten the other hand up on the play. Landry's usage remains encouraging and he should bounce back once he and Mayfield can start connecting more frequently.
2018 Week 5 vs BAL (10 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Landry got off to a slow start, catching just one pass for 10 yards in the first half of the game. He was able to absorb a big hit on the play and still hold onto the football. In the second quarter he got a deep shot down the left side of the field but the ball was overthrown by Baker Mayfield. He was closely covered on the play and would have had to make a contested catch had the pass been more accurate. He got going in the second half, catching several short passes and running after the catch to tack on additional yardage. He saw an end zone target in the third quarter but the pass was thrown too high. Landry was upset after the play and was seen campaigning with the officials for a pass interference flag. In the fourth quarter he came out of the backfield to catch a short pass and turn it into a 17-yard gain. He did blunder on the play as he should have gotten out of bounds to stop the clock but instead was brought down trying to fight for extra yards. In overtime he caught a 27-yard pass and was later leveled on a deep pass attempt. The ball was uncatchable but it appeared an argument for an illegal contact penalty could have been made. Landry is coming off two slower games now but he remains the No. 1 option in the Cleveland passing game.
2018 Week 4 vs OAK (10 / 4 / 34 / 1 rec)
Landry did most of his damage in the first half, catching three of his four passes before halftime. His only second half catch was a two-yard touchdown. Landry got off to a rough start, dropping his first target on a catchable pass during the first drive of the game. He bounced back with a nine-yard gain on a short slant later in the first quarter. He then had an 11-yard gain nullified by an illegal block penalty. He later saw an end zone target on that same drive, but he slipped on the play. It most likely would have been a touchdown if Landry had been able to keep his footing. In the second quarter, Landry lined up in the backfield and turned a short reception into a 15-yard gain. He committed another drop in the same quarter as he was unable to hold onto the ball following a big hit. Landry's two-yard touchdown reception was impressive as he snared a high pass over his shoulders in the back corner of the end zone. He ran a great route where he tricked the defender into thinking he wasn't part of the play before he took off toward the back corner of the end zone for the score. Landry continues to lead the Browns in targets on a weekly basis and is the team's preferred option in the passing game.
2018 Week 3 vs NYJ (15 / 8 / 103 / 0 rec)
Landry was slogging through a slow evening with Tyrod Taylor under center, catching just one pass from the veteran in just under two quarters of play. Once rookie Baker Mayfield entered the game, however, Landry came to life. He was on the receiving end of Mayfield's first NFL pass, a 14-yard completion over the middle. In the third quarter, Landry made the play of the game when he reached up to snare a 29-yard reception with two defenders draped all over him. He brought the ball down to New York's one-yard line. Landry also showed his passing skills as he completed a two-point conversion pass to Mayfield on a trick play. Landry did have a tough drop in the game as he let one of Mayfield's passes hit him in the chest and fall to the ground. That catchable pass would have gone for at least a nine-yard gain. On that same drive, Landry saw a red zone target, which he caught for a 12-yard gain, taking the ball to the Jets' eight-yard line. On 2nd-and-goal from the one-yard line, Landry caught a short shovel pass which went for no gain. Landry and Mayfield showed great chemistry together and should prove to be a productive duo going forward.
2018 Week 2 vs NO (7 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Landry didn't see the target volume that he did in Week 1, although that was partially due to a ball-control game plan that the Browns used during most of the first half. Landry remains Tyrod Taylor's favorite target, tying for the team lead with seven targets. His first catch was a three-yard reception. He then ripped off consecutive 14 and 22-yard receptions in the second quarter. He drew another deep target in the third quarter, roughly 12 yards downfield, but Taylor threw too high. Landry provided a clutch reception at the end of the fourth quarter, picking up a 25-yard gain which helped put the Browns in position to attempt a game-tying field goal. In Todd Haley's offense, Landry continues to be used downfield more than he was with the Dolphins, which raises his weekly ceiling.
2018 Week 1 vs PIT (15 / 7 / 106 / 0 rec)
Landry led the team with 15 targets on a rainy day in Cleveland. The veteran receiver wasn't especially efficient with the looks, catching just seven, although many of the incompletions were uncatchable passes. The Browns targeted Landry all over the field, allowing him to pick up some large chunk plays. He caught a deep 33-yard pass down the left sideline in the second quarter where he was wide open. He actually had to come back a bit on the pass, which was underthrown. In the third quarter the Browns took another deep shot to him but the pass was overthrown. He bounced back on the next possession with a 39-yard reception. Landry had a shot at a touchdown in the fourth quarter as he was open in the end zone, but the pass was overthrown.
