Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has started off the team’s Week 7 game against the Green Bay Packers in disastrous fashion.
He completed only five of his first 14 passes, was intercepted once and was also sacked. Weeden managed an 11-yard scramble as well, but that did very little to salvage his mediocre start.
Weeden earned the Browns’ starting quarterback job only after Brian Hoyer went down for the season. However, with Jason Campbell also waiting in the wings, Weeden has to pick up his performance if he hopes to keep his job.
Unlike his first season in the NFL, Weeden Cheap Jerseys Supply has legitimate weapons to work with on offense. Josh Gordon has developed into a star wide receiver, while Jordan Cameron has played well at tight end. Weeden’s poor pocket presence and erratic passing have limited the offense.
The Packers stormed out to a 17-3 lead on the Browns, who have become much less competitive with Weeden under center.
The Houston Texans raised eyebrows across the league when they named Case Keenum the starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs. Most people predicted disaster for an undrafted free agent who has never even been active for an NFL game until this week, but Keenum is keeping things close in a competitive game.
At the end of the third quarter, Keenum has completed 12-of-19 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown as the Texans trail the Chiefs by just one possession. More importantly, he has thrown zero interceptions, a problem that has plagued previous starters Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates. He has done a fine job evading pressure and keeping mistakes down — the Chiefs have gotten just one sack on Keenum a week after taking down Terrelle Pryor 10 times.
Keenum was already popular among hometown Texans Cheap Jerseys Team fans after setting college records at the University of Houston. If he’s able to pull off the upset win today, it will be that much harder for the coaches to re-install Schaub as the starter.
