Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 14 vs CIN (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Njoku saw his first game action since fracturing his wrist during Week 2 of the season. He was quiet, catching just a four-yard pass on the game. He was involved in an odd play in the first quarter, however. He appeared to have pulled in about a 10-yard grab. He fell backwards and linebacker Nick Vigil ripped the ball loose while Njoku was on the ground. The play was initially ruled a fumble and later changed to an interception, charged to Baker Mayfield. The replay showed that it looked like a catch and that Njoku should have been down by contact but the officials did not agree. Njoku drew an end zone target from the Cincinnati three-yard line in the third quarter. After some hand fighting with the defender, Njoku was able to get one hand on the ball but could not haul in the pass.

2019 Week 2 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Njoku had a scary fall on his lone target in the game. In the first quarter, Njoku leapt up to catch a high pass. It looked like he was going to make the athletic grab but he was undercut by a defender while in the air. He flipped upside-down and landed on his head. Njoku wound up being concussed on the play and was placed in the concussion protocol. With the Browns on a short week, he will have a hard time getting cleared in time to play in Week 3.

2019 Week 1 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 37 / 1 rec)

Njoku wound up catching Baker Mayfield's only touchdown in the loss. His first target of the game was a catchable one down the middle of the field but Njoku let the ball go through his hands. On the third drive of the game, Njoku ripped off an 18-yard gain. In the second quarter Njoku failed to bring in another catchable ball, this time on a 3rd-and-13. The Browns needed that pass to earn a new set of downs but Njoku couldn't bring in the contested catch. His touchdown was a three-yard pass right near the middle of the goal line. He got inside position on the defender and used his large frame to box out the defender on the catch. His final catch was a nine-yarder in the fourth quarter. As the only starting pass-catcher taller than 6'1, Njoku remains the preferred red zone threat for the Browns
