From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Njoku got his first NFL score. With the injury and disappointment at wide receiver for the Browns, the rookie could be playing a bigger role in the passing game going forward.

Week 3: at Indianapolis Colts

All TE vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. DeShone Kizer left last week's game after dealing with migraine headaches. Kizer came back after leaving but was largely ineffective as he threw for four interceptions in this game Adding to issues for the Browns passing game is Corey Coleman broke his hand last week and has been placed on IR. The Browns passing game still leaves a lot to be desired and it is still incredibly young as Ricardo Louis and Rishard Higgins are expected to see an increase in workload with the injury to Corey Coleman. This Colts passing defense badly misses Vontae Davis who could be close to returning and if he does return, this matchup becomes not nearly as good for the Browns this week as Davis who is one of the top cornerbacks in the league would significantly improve their defense as the Colts have been mixing Quincy Wilson and T.J. Green as the replacement for Davis and neither has been particularly effective. Last week, the Colts secondary held strong for the first half only to fall apart in the second half which was primarily setup due to the pass rush getting to Carson Palmer which the pass-rush will have a more difficult time against the Browns strong offensive line.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs BAL (4 / 3 / 27 / 1 rec)

Njoku scored his first NFL touchdown against the Ravens on an impressive catch in the end zone. He snared a 23-yard pass from Kevin Hogan for the score, changing direction and adjusting to make a diving catch to his left. He used his athleticism to make a difficult catch look easy on the play. He was mostly quiet besides that play, catching two other passes which both went for short gains.

2017 Week 1 vs PIT (2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Njoku wasn't targeted heavily in the game, but his red zone usage in his first game was encouraging. Njoku saw a pass come his way right near the goal line during the first quarter. He reached up to make the catch but was interfered with by the Pittsburgh defender, leading to a pass interference penalty which put the ball on the Pittsburgh three-yard line. Later, on Pittsburgh's 10-yard line, he caught a short pass in the flat which he turned into a seven-yard pickup. This time he was one broken tackle away from his first NFL touchdown. Njoku is a big, athletic target for Cleveland and could be a player to watch in the red zone as he gains more experience.
