NFL: Browns surprise ‘Bucs’ in overtime


Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were unable to continue their winning streak and fell 20-17 in overtime to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The crowd favorites found the pay zone with less than a minute left in regulation time to tie the game.

In overtime, the Buccaneers (5-6) got the ball twice, but the Browns (4-7) defense got up on each occasion. To win, Jacoby Brissett first found Amari Cooper on 46 yards. Running back Nick Chubb finished the job with a three-yard run for the middle finger of the win.

Logically, it was Brissett’s last game as starting quarterback for the Ohio club, since Deshaun Watson has just completed his 11-game suspension.

The one who has been at the heart of the turmoil due to sexual assault allegations will return to action next Sunday against the Houston Texans. It’s the team he started his career with and the organization that traded him to the Browns at a high price last offseason.

A change that pays off

At MetLife Stadium, the Jets got the number right by trusting quarterback Mike White and defeated the Chicago Bears 31-10.

In the past week, head coach Robert Salem decided to bench center Zach Wilson. The second overall pick in the 2021 draft was horrible last week and would have frustrated many of his teammates if he didn’t take the blame for his club’s underperformance.

The Jets (7-4) therefore gave White his first start of 2022. The latter completed 22 of 28 passes he attempted for 315 yards and three touchdowns.

For the Bears (3-9), quarterback Trevor Semian worked behind center because of Justin Fields’ shoulder injury. The substitute threw a pass into the pay zone and was also the victim of an interception.

Big first half for the Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins beat the Houston Texans 30-15 Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Florida formation scored all its points during the first two quarters, while whitewashing its rivals during them.

Tua Tagovailoa threw a six-point throw, Jeff Wilson Jr. crossed the goal line on a run, Xavier Howard recovered a fumble for a major and Jason Sanders had three field goals during the Dolphins’ 8-3 streak. ).

The Texans (1-9-1) had the best afterward, but it was too little too late.

In short

At FedEx Field, the Washington Commanders (7-5) defeated the Atlanta Falcons (5-7) 19-13 for their sixth win in their last seven outings.

At Bank of America Stadium, the Denver Broncos’ (3-8) woes continued in a 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers (4-8).

At Nissan Stadium, the Cincinnati Bengals (7-4) again got the better of the Tennessee Titans (7-4), whom they notably eliminated during the 2021 playoffs. This time, the quarterback’s troupe Joe Burrow won 20-16.

At EverBank Field, the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-7) managed not one, but two late comebacks to beat the Baltimore Ravens (7-4) 28-27.
