Colts Week 3 Snap Counts vs. Browns

Colts Week 3 Snap Counts vs. Browns

How many snaps each Indianapolis Colts player played on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. The Indianapolis Colts finally got their first win of the season on Sunday, topping the Cleveland Browns, 31-28. It was a total team effort to get the Colts there, as their currently banged-up squad had to use more players than usual to get the job done. NOTES: Again, the Colts had all five offensive linemen, their quarterback and their tight end (it matters, he plays some snaps in-line) play 100% of the snaps. That is two weeks in a row. The coaches appear to have made their point to Donte...

Where was Jordan Leslie during Cleveland Browns WR debacle?

Why wasn’t Jordan Leslie utilized more during the Cleveland Browns loss to Colts, in which receivers failed QB DeShone Kizer? Cleveland Browns receiver Jordan Leslie made the catch of the game for a receiving corps that many members of the Dawg Pound are ready to send to the Canadian Football League.

Browns’ defensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 3

Browns’ defensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 3

Good games for Danny Shelton and the defensive line were negated by poor days from Jamar Taylor and Jabrill Peppers. Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns' Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Notes: Danny Shelton showed up on the stat sheet this week with 7 combined tackles, 2 of which were for a loss. Trevon Coley and Larry Ogunjobi also appeared to do good work against the run, limiting RB Frank Gore to 2.3 YPC on the day. PFF had high praise for both Shelton (83.9) and Jamie Meder (84.8), listing them as two of the Browns’ three...

Thelonius7 Quickly Analyzes The Loss Our wonderful friend Thelonius7 jumps in to give his snapshot review of the Browns and the Colts. Suffice it to say nobody is exactly happy this morning and he gets into some of the reasons why: EZ opening a practice. Jackson exposing Kizer. Worry about Jacksons psyche. I like the way Thelo thinks, but I don’t intend to be subbing out any additional services any time soon. Although he may consider one for depressing promo sounds with the montage he created at the show’s open. In both cases, winning would still be better. Give it a listen, and...

Browns’ offensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 3

Browns’ offensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 3

Duke Johnson and Joe Thomas continue to play at a high level, but the wide receiver room struggles without Corey Coleman. Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns' Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Notes: This was a much better effort by QB DeShone Kizer than his Week 2 performance, but that was to be expected against a poor Colts pass defense. Completing less than 50% of his passes wasn’t all his fault, as there were up to eight dropped passes that the CBS telecast kept track of. The killers for Kizer were that for every on-target pass...

Colts Cast: Colts Limp Out of Week 3 with 31-28 Win Over Browns

When the Indianapolis Colts lose, it’s easy to be negative. When they win it’s harder, but when the coaching staff employs a coward’s gameplan for the final 30-plus minutes of the game it’s warranted. Jacoby Brissett did indeed improve from last week, he looked comfortable and his receivers helped him out tremendously in the process. John Simon continues to be a man among men, and the defense turned the Cleveland Browns over 3 times in the process. There were so many good things about the first half and it was really fun to watch. Really fum. It’s just too bad that wen it came...

Browns Lose To The Colts 31-28 Today the Cleveland Browns lost what turned out to be a close, entertaining game to the Indianapolis Colts. In my usual way, I’m going to go over it but before I do, I must say something. You may consider this to be an “Official Statement”: When we started The DBN Network over a year ago, we did so with the expressed intent that it NOT contain politics. Especially now, we are very glad we adopted that policy. With that, we delve into the review: The defense once again was terrible in the 1st half, much better in the 2nd.

Browns vs. Colts: 7 Talking Points

Browns vs. Colts: 7 Talking Points

A difficult first half sinks the Browns. Optimism abounded in the week leading up to this week’s Browns vs. Colts game. Many saw the contest as a chance for the Browns to win their first game of the season against a team that is nearly as inept as the Browns while Andrew Luck sits on the bench. Instead of an uplifting win, the Browns experienced a disappointing loss defined by an awful first half in which Jacoby Brissett tore the Browns’ defense asunder. DeShone Kizer orchestrated a comeback to respectability, but the loss still stings. Here are the takeaways from a third straight...

Discuss the 4th quarter of Browns vs. Colts live. The Browns had a golden opportunity to get back in the game early in the third quarter, but an interception by QB DeShone Kizer killed things. A late forced fumble had Cleveland with a shot to score quick, but then Britt had a pass behind him go off his hands for an interception.

Kamar Aiken was reportedly concussed in the first half of the Colts matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Here’s our initial version of the Stampede Blue Community Wagers Competition Gambling and fantasy football are arguably the two biggest reasons for the NFL’s current level of popularity.

Three Keys for the Colts vs the Browns

Three Keys for the Colts vs the Browns

1 - Pressure Deshone Kizer early and often Kizer is a young, inexperienced quarterback who has made his fair share of mistakes in his first two NFL starts. The Colts did a good job of pressuring Carson Palmer but the Colts will face a tougher offensive line this week, so they’ll need to be creative about bringing pressure. Against the Steelers, Kizer struggled to decipher blitzes and made some poor errors throughout the game. The Colts need to bring the heat against Kizer early on so that they can rattle him and affect his confidence. Jabaal Sheard and John Simon should see a lot of...
