CLEVELAND - Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones became the fastest player in National Football League history to 10,000 receiving yards with a 30-yard, second-quarter reception in Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
That means the Browns, who have earned the No. 1 pick in the last two drafts, are no longer in possession of a top 10 overall pick. He even said one of those plays was supposed to be a quarterback sneak, but the officials took too long get things lined up and then the Browns picked up a penalty. We just have to find ways to go out there and attack Cover 2.
But, he showed he can handle the responsibilities just fine.
"Each week for us you've heard me say it, to focus on us, championship preparation or performance, and that's every week, no matter if we've been 1-4, or 4-4, or 8-0, that's the mindset", Quinn said. Matt Ryan and the offense had struggles, but the defense was the main culprit on an embarrassing day.
Despite Baker Mayfield's 9 for 9 start to the game, the Browns elected to take the ball out of his hands, give the ball to Dontrell Hilliard, and while Mayfield had Takk McKinley beat in coverage, Hilliard airmailed the throw for an interception. "I just woke up feeling really risky".
It was Mayfield's second game with offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, the team's running backs coach thrust into the coordinator's role when Todd Haley was sacked after Jackson on October 29. You feel me? If you're up 28-10, I hope our offense wouldn't throw the ball. The work the Falcons did to get back to 4-4, the chance to get over.500 for the first time this season, and any sliver of optimism about a third consecutive trip to the playoffs.

"Won the day", Williams said. "They both understand each other". They could very well be guilty of overlooking the young Browns roster and expecting things to come easy for them. It comes down to me doing my job, getting the ball out of my hands. In no time, he's made the Browns better. The Falcons lost a lot of momentum by losing to an inferior team.
"That obviously makes me feel comfortable when they say that".
But as far as his future in Cleveland, Williams insists he's not campaigning for the job.
Six plays later, the Browns were dancing in the end zone.
The Browns can not improve upon that in the much-needed bye week. "I like being employed". "I've been playing OK, but that's not anything that's in my head right now. We thought we would have some opportunities to create some plays in space, and get some explosives, and we didn't do that to the level that we needed to today".
NOTES: Williams only planned to give his players Tuesday off, but "threw them a bone" following the win and gave them Monday as well.
