The Cleveland Browns are officially in evaluation mode, and sometimes that gets ugly. On Sunday, they had guys like rookie lineman Garrett Gilkey and wide receiver Brian Tyms playing significant minutes.
This, however, does not excuse poor play from people who have been on the field for most of this season or most of their career.
Once again the defense was ripped apart. This time it was by one of the worst offenses and least productive quarterbacks in the NFL. The New York Jets scored 24 points and finished the game on a 24-3 run.
The good news for Browns fans is that there is only one week left. So hang in there, and in the meantime, let's hand out some grades for Sunday’s 24-13 loss.
As always, weekly grades are handed out based on how much a player impacted the game, if he won his individual battle, whether he was a positive contributor and if he could have performed better.
Let’s see how they did.
