But Browns coach Freddie Kitchens didn’t want to hear any excuses during his halftime interview with WEWS.
“Offensively, we’re not making any plays,” Kitchens said. “The balls are there to be made, and we’re not making any so that’s what usually happens when you can’t protect and you don’t make any plays.”
Mayfield played the entire first half, getting seven possessions and 32 snaps. The Browns gained 75 yards, had five first downs and kicked three field goals.
