Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 5 vs PHI (15 / 26 / 120 / 0 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Head coach Adam Gase decided to go all in on the chance he might get Sam Darnold back, giving the second year quarterback all the first team reps until Darnold was ruled out Thursday. That left one day to get Falk ready -- and a day which is usually light and a walk through -- and the effect was obvious. Falk looked awful, and unprepared behind a really bad offensive line. His passes were inaccurate even when they weren't rushed, he looked like he couldn't sense pressure and the only target he had any luck hitting was Le'Veon Bell. His worst moment - and there were many - was a pick six in the first quarter. Again, the offensive line is terrible, allowing 10 sacks including a strip-sack returned for a touchdown, and even Darnold would have struggled behind it, but Falk was done no favors with the light workload in practice and was not prepared for the game.

2019 Week 3 vs NE (12 / 22 / 98 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Falk had a lot of checkdowns, screens and dump passes Sunday, though whether that was nerves by the undrafted, first time starter, the poor offensive line play which left him no time to work or the gameplan, it's not clear. What is clear is that throwing the ball short made things tougher on Le'Veon Bell, who found the line of scrimmage stacked. Falk was also sacked five times during the game, sometimes because the offense line let the defense through too quickly and sometimes because Falk was too slow to make a decision. Sometimes that would have been better, such as when he threw an interception in the third quarter. On the play it appeared he expected to see Jamison Crowder continue towards the post, but the receiver stopped instead. The safety read Falk's eyes the whole way, and had an easy interception with nobody else from either team in the vicinity.

2019 Week 2 vs CLE (20 / 25 / 198 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Pressed into service when Trevor Siemian went down, Falk played adequately, albeit with a curtailed playbook. He did manage two of the longest throws the offense had on the night. The first was a deep pass to Robby Anderson in the third quarter for 36 yards. Anderson had a step on the coverage along the right side but Falk underthrew him. Anderson did a good job slowing for the ball and keeping his feet in for the pass. At the time, the Jets had -12 passing yards. The second long pass was to a crossing Jamison Crowder who found an open seam against the zone defense for a 30 yard catch. It was a decent throw, and Crowder was wide open between the defenders, and it could have gone for more yards but he stumbled. Unlike Siemian, head coach Adam Gase seemed OK with Falk uncorking some longer passes, though it might have been because the Browns were in control and sitting back on defense.
