Browns say entire offense, not just Taylor, must improve

It was just one game but it was definitely a promising one for the Steelers’ maligned defense

"Whether that is newness or whatever it is, I do not want to get caught up in all of that". Taylor took seven sacks for 47 lost yards, was hit several more times and carried a 51.8 quarterback rating in his first start with the Browns, who acquired him in a trade with the Buffalo Bills back in March.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor (5) rushes as Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward (97) pursues during the first quarter at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. Now they're determined to spearhead an offensive turnaround Sunday when the Browns (0-0-1) visit the New Orleans Saints (0-1).

Jackson wouldn't pinpoint Taylor's problems in the opener - he led the team in rushing and ran for a TD - but made it clear the 28-year-old had better step up his game. "You learn from the game, and you see where you can try to attack and exploit some of those areas, as well".

On Sept. 10, Jackson said starting Gordon was "a mistake" but refused to assign blame and insisted the team had "worked through it".

Taylor and Gordon each had one of their least productive outings this past weekend. I know the sentiment I'm getting here is that it's him (who should be blamed for the offense's woes.) It's not.

"What we can do is move forward, and we got to put the ball in our guys' hands this week, and give them an opportunity to make plays, " he said. Jackson said Monday it was a case of "miscommunication".

Jennifer Rowling of the Queensland Strawberry Growers' Association said she believed the strawberries had been "interfered with". These include Donnybrook strawberries and those sold by the Woolworths Group under the Berry Obsession and Berry Licious names.

Gordon did not know he was going to start until that play.

It may just be a matter of the former Pro Bowler getting his feet under him as he had missed nearly all of training camp to focus on his sobriety and keeping his personal life in order. "But that's just how the game goes".

Taylor threw toward Gordon a fourth time, but the play was wiped out by a penalty.

Taylor has received plenty of criticism from media and fans for his poor ball placement in the opener, but Gordon stressed "it's definitely not all on him". "And for us, we've got to take off in a big way".

Regarding injuries, Jackson said defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah has an ankle injury that will require him to miss some games, though the coach did not provide more specifics. "What I am also saying in there is that it is not all him". He's got to continue to work to be in the right spot.
