NFL: SEP 22 Steelers at Browns

Browns tight end David Njoku had one of the best games of his NFL career on Thursday night, catching a career-high nine passes for 89 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett said afterward that he plans to keep going back to Njoku often.

“He always tells me he’s always open,” Brissett said. “Every time in the huddle he’s like, ‘I got you, I got you, I got you.'”

A first-round pick of the Browns in 2017, Njoku played out his rookie contract and then signed a four-year, $56.75 million contract extension this year. Brissett said he expects Njoku to keep getting better.

“He’s doing a great job and he’s still got so much room to grow,” Brissett said.

The Browns would love to see Njoku keep playing the way he did on Thursday night.

  1. I’ve always thought Njoku could have games like that regularly, but have been in the minority. He needs more consistency…do it.
    I just hope he and Brissett can build on it and have a few more games like that.

  2. Ironically, the reason Njoku is getting a lot more targets is because he’s getting a lot more snaps… and the reason he’s getting a lot more snaps is because he has improved so much as a blocker in the running game.

  3. Browns are a joke. Steelers still own you, don’t forget it. The result will be different next time, unless the refs hand you the game again.
