Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry had a heck of day Sunday, torching the Miami Dolphins secondary all game long.
When a team plays the Miami Dolphins, domination is the minimum requirement for a competitive team. The Cleveland Browns are a competitive team. Jarvis Landry is a competitor, period. Given the opportunity to have himself a revenge game, Jarvis Landry took it and ran.
Landry led all Cleveland receivers with 10 receptions for 148 yards and two touchdowns. This is what the Browns have been waiting for. This is what was pictured after acquiring Odell Beckham Jr. Jarvis Landry made the most of his 13 targets and absolutely torched the Miami Dolphins.
Landry scored the first and third touchdowns of the day for the Browns. After his second touchdown grab of the day, Cleveland led 21-0. (Cleveland would go on to win 41-24).
Landry has been quite vocal about Miami’s decision to trade him to Cleveland. Landry’s sentiment is one that is shared by many. Often times teams would send players to the Browns to “get rid of them”, or “send them to die”. More times than not, that was the end result. Ending up in Cleveland would be the last time anyone heard of them. Their NFL careers would come to a screeching halt once they put on a Browns uniform. This is not the case with Landry.
Right now, Jarvis Landry has career-highs in two statistics. Yards per reception (14.3) and yards per game (76.6). These numbers could change before the season is up. As of now, it is encouraging that he is improving upon his first year in Cleveland. Landry should surpass his receiving yards total from last season (976) considering he already has 843. Landry’s reception total (59) should also exceed his previous total (81). As long as Landry and Baker Mayfield continue to display their chemistry, Landry should get back over 1,000 yards receiving after missing it by less than 25 yards the past two years.
