NFL Week 2 grades: Cowboys earn ‘A-‘ for upset win over Bengals; Broncos, Rams get ‘B-‘ after shaky wins

There’s a reason that Cleveland is once known as the ‘Factory of Sadness.’ The Browns arguably have more improbable losses than any other team in NFL history and they added another one to their heartbreaking total on Sunday by blowing a 30-17 lead to the New York Jets in just 85 seconds. 

With 1:55 left to play on Sunday, Nick Chubb scored a touchdown to put the Browns up 30-17 and it looked like Cleveland was going to coast to victory, but when you’re talking about the Browns, there’s no such thing as coasting to victory. 

In a stunning turn of events, the Jets scored two touchdowns just 60 seconds apart, which allowed them to steal a 31-30 win. If you’re wondering how improbable the loss was, here’s your answer. 

For the most part, the Browns played an impressive game, but they couldn’t overcome SIX monumental mistakes, which all took place over the final two minutes. 

The biggest one came from Chubb, who could have sealed the win if he had simply fallen to the ground instead of scoring a TD with 1:55 left. If he had done that, the game would have been over because the run gave Cleveland a first down and the Jets had zero timeouts remaining.

We’ve seen running backs go down at the 1-yard line before, but Chubb didn’t do it here. Even if he had gone out of bounds, the Browns still could have simply kneeled the ball three straight times to pick up the win.  

Chubb’s gaffe wasn’t the only big mistake the Browns made. Last week’s hero for the Browns, Cade York, definitely wasn’t the hero this week. The Browns would have had 31 points at the end of the game, but York missed the extra point following Chubb’s touchdown. The missed kick left the Browns in front by just 13 points, which helped open the door for the Jets comeback.   

The mistakes by York and Chubb wouldn’t have mattered if the Browns defense didn’t give up a long touchdown, which brings us to mistake number…
