For this weeks On The Mark, I will be recapping both the Buckeyes and Browns in one article!
The defense was mostly solid with 4 interceptions. Maryland was never really in it and while C.J. Brown started the game, Caleb Rowe came in the second half to try and spark their offense. And while they were able to get 24 points, it seemed the Bucks offense were always able to respond with a touchdown of their own. The Buckeyes, as expected, were the better team all around, a nice way to go in to another off week with their first Big Ten win.
My take: the Bucks are on their way to winning their Big 10 division while the Browns are still in the thick of the AFC North division with this huge comeback win today. To go along with the Cavs first preseason game, it was a great weekend for Cleveland sports fans. That said, the Browns defense needs a lot more work. If Locker had not been knocked out of the game, it could have been a loss for the Browns. But a win is a win.
Up next: the Buckeyes are idle next weekend while the Browns play the hated Steelers in Cleveland next Sunday. It would be nice if the Browns could put together a full game.
