Week 14: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All TE vs CIN

FBG says: Good matchup. The Browns passing offense remains one of the most disappointing units of 2019, as Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham just have not figured out how to work together this year. Beckham was held to just 29 yards last week with just three receptions. Beckham is now questionable with a groin injury, and if he is unable to go, the Browns receiving group is incredibly thin. The Browns have an underlying issue which is that Baker Mayfield has been atrocious cycling through his reads this year, but at the same time the receiving options outside of Landry and Beckham have been horrendous at getting open putting a lot of pressure on Landry and Beckham. This makes the job of the quarterback incredibly tough when he defense knows they only need to take away your first and second read. The offensive line has not helped the situation as Mayfield was sacked five times last week and has now been sacked 32 times this year. The good news is that the Browns will get left tackle Greg Robinson back after he missed last week with a concussion, but he is just average at best and the main issue is the right side of the line with Chris Hubbard and Wyatt Teller at right guard. The Bengals are a passing defense continue to be one of the worst in the NFL this season. While they have only allowed one 300-yard passer on the year, this is mostly due to the Bengals having faced the fewest passing attempts in the NFL this year as teams have not needed to throw in blowout situations. When teams do throw, they carve through this defense as they have allowed the most yards-per-attempt on the season at 8.5. The problem is that outside of Darqueze Dennard in the slot, the Bengals have some of the worst combinations of corners and safeties as William Jackson and B.W. Webb both are liabilities at corner. Another issue is the overall lack of pass rush generated by the Bengals as they have just 20 sacks on the year which is the third-fewest in the NFL this season which gives opposing quarterbacks more time to pick on the weak corners and safeties of the Bengals.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 9 vs DEN (2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Seals-Jones got off to a fast start, catching three balls in the first half. He had a five-yard gain on second-and-third in the first quarter. He was quiet until the final drive of the first half where he had a five-yard catch and a seven-yard catch in the red zone. He took a direct hit on the knee on that final catch and left the game. He did not return to action.

2019 Week 6 vs SEA (6 / 3 / 47 / 1 rec)

For the second time in three weeks, Seals-Jones made an impact on the game. Despite his disappearing act in Week 5, it is apparent the Browns want to take advantage of his athleticism down the middle of the field. His biggest play of the afternoon was a 31-yard touchdown at the beginning of the second quarter. He found an opening in the defense deep down the right sideline and hauled in the pass for an easy score. He got open again later in the second, this time picking up 11 yards down the seam. His other catch was a short, five-yarder in which he was tackled instantly. Seals-Jones did commit a drop on a catchable ball deep down the middle of the field during the second quarter.

2019 Week 4 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 82 / 1 rec)

The Browns turned to Ricky Seals-Jones instead of Demetrius Harris in this game, with the latter not even seeing a single target in the win. Seals-Jones made his presence felt, scoring on a nine-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He got wide open on the left side of the field as the defense got lost trying to contend with Odell Beckham. Seals-Jones was quiet after the score until the third quarter when he ripped off a 59-yard catch and run down the right sideline. His final catch was a 14-yard reception later in the third quarter. If Seals-Jones continues to play ahead of Harris, he could make some noise in the Cleveland offense while David Njoku is injured.
