Vance Joseph's fourth fall vs. Browns highlights Broncos matches

DENVER – Despite the fact that the teams had the same odds to make the playoff so late in the NFL season 2018, the two franchises turned out on an oseasonably warm winter night on Saturday night have not been further apart. On a side line, Browns and their quarterback-finally were quarterback-Baker Mayfield, who once again in his rookie campaign proves he is the guy for the job in Cleveland as long as he is upright. And on the other side, Broncos and their head coach Vance Joseph, giving the people who would like to run him out of town more than enough ammunition for the week. In question and in front of the head of a depressed Denver, rumors after a 1 7-16 loss to Cleveland (franchise's first loss for Browns for a stunning 28 years), leaving the team to 6-8 in the season, Josef's dubious decision was to kick a field goal on fourth and -one, down four points, with 4:35 left to play. Context is all: Bronco's historic stiff defense was on his last leg, with cornerback Chris Harris unavailable due to injury, cornerback Bradley Roby played with a gash through his lip that required five stitches and cornerback Jamar Taylor needed a blast after a second half change. The offensive line would go bad for it; protect Jared Veldheer and others attempted to vain away the incoming field goal team.

DENVER – Despite the fact that the teams had the same odds to make the playoff so late in the NFL season 2018, the two franchises turned out on an oseasonably warm winter night on Saturday night have not been further apart.

On a side line, Browns and their quarterback-finally were quarterback-Baker Mayfield, who once again in his rookie campaign proves he is the guy for the job in Cleveland as long as he is upright. And on the other side, Broncos and their head coach Vance Joseph, giving the people who would like to run him out of town more than enough ammunition for the week.

In question and in front of the head of a depressed Denver, rumors after a 1

7-16 loss to Cleveland (franchise’s first loss for Browns for a stunning 28 years), leaving the team to 6-8 in the season, Josef’s dubious decision was to kick a field goal on fourth and -one, down four points, with 4:35 left to play.

Context is all: Bronco’s historic stiff defense was on his last leg, with cornerback Chris Harris unavailable due to injury, cornerback Bradley Roby played with a gash through his lip that required five stitches and cornerback Jamar Taylor needed a blast after a second half change. The offensive line would go bad for it; protect Jared Veldheer and others attempted to vain away the incoming field goal team. But Joseph chose to kick it and retain a Brown’s lead that they would not refrain from.

“Yes, we wanted to put it in!” Offensive tackle Garett Bolles said. “It’s the fourth and one, and the game is on the line. We wanted to do it, but at the same time it’s the coach’s conversation.” We had plenty of chances to get it before. “

” I hoped we would win, “Roby said . “We were down the corner. We had a healthy corner.” We were a farm away, I only knew we would go for it, and when we did not, I was disappointed. I’m just upset. “

Roby said loudly what the rest of his teammates wised – how could a head coach who has demanded more fourth downward trials than 30 other NFL teams (19 this season) who has been in conflict with critics who say he’s too aggressive on the fourth downstairs, as before The week dropped his veteran quarterback in the media to not be aggressive enough with the football, now suddenly back when the time actually was right to go for it?

In the visitors’ locker room, Brown’s players were equally confused by Josef’s decision to kick field goals. “We were amazed at it,” said Brown’s broad recipient Rashard Higgins. “They say basically, We trust our defense to stop these guys but it’s too late for that.”

It was a special validation night for Higgins, who only scored two passes on three goals but turned into one of the best catches of the night on Brown’s go-ahead unit. The recipient improvised at nineteen and nine with a sprint upside down and a comeback, first drop down on Denver’s 16-yard line. Mayfield, the flight in his pocket and Bradley Chubb’s grip found Higgins on the same side. Higgin’s decision to return to the football in a scramble drill coincided with Mayfield’s blind choices to throw the football grunt and away, the kind of game that only happens when the quarterback and the broad recipient have a certain brand of chemistry – something we do not usually see in Cleveland , which is now on 6-7-1.

“We had to do it once in the Houston game,” Higgins says. “I and [Mayfield] are always on the same side, and that’s something we all work on a lot.”

Moments later, Mayfield found a sloping Antonio Callaway in the final zone for quarterback’s second touchdown pass at night. His first came on Brown’s opening operation, when Mayfield lobbed a dime 31 yards downfield to a tightly covered Breshad Perriman, who has been on the team for months after being written off the street on October 13th.

Higgins fought to remember an opportunity in an exercise or game when Mayfield made a similar throw to the third-year recipient with 10 catches and no touchdowns like a brown that went on Saturday night. But Mayfield chucked it anyway. “I’m so glad he did, and it was just a perfect ball,” says Perriman.

This Brown’s quarterback insists that these Browns already have the pieces to succeed, make no excuses.

“I trust my guys, Mayfield said after the match.” I’ve said it all the time. We have what we need in this dressing room. I trust those recipients and they need to know it. Bending up to make a game, I trust [Perriman] right now. He has done the gigs and they feed it. You build trust with them and the next one, I guarantee that he catches too. Maybe it was Kobe Bryant who talked – the retired Lakers guard picked up the Cleveland players on Saturday night at the Denver law hotel and talked privately with Mayfield. “

After that, Mayfield collapsed with some of the home crowd behind Brown’s sideline, just because. in a short while. “I just love how that guy does not care about someone’s feelings,” says Mayfield. “He cares about winning more and more.”

Confidence Brown’s dressing room has placed in Mayfield to do the right thing in some way-strongly contrasts the uncertainty higher up in the Cleveland food chain. No buyer shares in interim coach Gregg Williams or interim coordinator Freddie Kitchens maintains roles in the organization after 2018 when GM John Dorsey fired head coach Hue Jackson and Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley and Williams installed, but Browns is 4-2 since moving, and at 6-7-1, clicks to narrow playoff, hoping a song away from a 0-16 finish.

Williams, however, had his own fourth-and-a-game conversation almost blown in his face when he chose to go to it on Denver 10-yard track at 1:49 left to play 17-16. Denver Defensive Tackle Adam Gotsis filled Nick Chubb behind the Scrimmage line, giving Broncos football and a chance to a match window. Technically, Joseph’s faith proved to be true-instead, it was the crime and the broken veteran quarterback, Case Keenum, who could not get the job done. During the process, Browns showed how far they climbed from 0-16 ignominy.

After moving the chains in a fourth and two throw, Keenum ran the ball first down to stop the clock, throwing incompletely twice and setting fourth and 10 at 50. Williams demanded an all-out flash with four linemen , two linebackers and second-year security Jabrill Peppers charges the quarterback. Through design, Browns expects to team to continue running to block, so blitz requires that Peppers turn around the defensive end to the left. They have run the game before this season a handful of times and Peppers had not yet earned a bag. But Broncos dropped his hand and touched the tight end Matt LaCosse from the far right to a traditional, narrow ending.

Peppers said that Broncos had run a similar game earlier in the game and threw the protection from LaCosse since, so he freestyled and pushed the gap between the tight end and the roof and took Keenum down for victory. Afterwards, defensive coach asked Peppers if he had been dropped by the LaCosse position, which he had.

“I would really go all the way,” said Peppers. “The narrow end came in, and I knew they were going to slip. The better you know the offensive protection, the better you are.”

Remarkably, Browns lay in the man’s coverage for the entire device and chose to push Keenum consistently on blitzes and trust a young secondary to step by step with Broncos recipients. There was no disguise for it, no camouflage – just a team clinging over from an opponent with the kind of trust that can only come from just being better.

“You have to show us the recipients you have is better than us,” said Peppers. “They did not show us.”

Browns, a painful, slow 60 minutes, With their franchise quarterback, their cornerstone rusher, their stud rookie corner, a breakout run back and a veteran offensive line-can only be closer to a Super Bowl than Broncos, 2015 Super Bowl champion who has two cornerstone rushers and a series of promising rookies, but missing the franchise quarterback and the serious intangible: faith in the mission.

Peppers was asked to pick up the last time Browns had that kind of confidence in zero coverage late in a close game.

“You will not even lie to you “said Peppers with a laugh.” I can not remember a time like that. It’s a good feeling.
