Browns snatch defeat from jaws of victory

Hannah Rogers | 17 September, 2018, 18:12

It's an impossibility to lose to the Cleveland Browns.

Still, there's polishing to do, and a short time in which to do it. Live it up, New Orleans.

Then, after the Saints took a three-point lead with 21 seconds remaining, the Browns worked the ball down the field from their own 25-yard line to the New Orleans 34 after Taylor completed passes of 25 and 16 yards to Jarvis Landry and Callaway, respectively. After Cleveland's first three kickoffs went for touchbacks, Hill chose to return the fourth from 7 yards deep in the end zone. The turnovers (four lost fumbles in the first two games) are a major concern.

Let's be honest, if a bit cruel, the Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez, was the Saints' most valuable player. The third-year wideout is in that rare class of talents at his position that get targeted even if they're double-covered with the expectation that he'll figure it out - and that's just what Thomas did, despite having two different Browns defenders draped all over him.

Two Browns' possessions later, the normally careful Tyrod Taylor threw a pass over the middle in Cleveland territory that Saints safety Marcus Williams picked off and returned 22 yards to the Browns 18.

But Gonzalez pushed his second extra-point miss of the game left, and the Saints got the ball back in great shape. But it got the job done well enough to help produce a win. He became a regular on special teams late last season on kick coverage. The Browns tied the score 18-18 with 1:16 left, but Gonzalez missed the extra-point kick wide left. Second, the legend of Taysom Hill grew by another chapter. This time, his effort was from 52 yards out. The Saints weren't able to capitalize, but it was a nice jolt of electricity. The Cleveland Browns visited the New Orleans Saints in week two, and these are our instant reactions.

Moments after Zane Gonzalez - or Gone-zalez as he will likely soon become - missed a 44-yard field goal try early in the fourth quarter on September 16, the FOX cameras inside the Superdome zeroed in on Hue Jackson.
