Odell Beckham Jr., RB Nick Chubb, DE Myles Garrett, T Chris Hubbard and S Damarious Randall



WR Odell Beckham Jr.:

On the team trying to overcome turnovers:

“I would sum it that we didn’t overcome the turnovers today. Not to say that they didn’t play a good game, but we beat ourselves a lot. It was a combination of them playing a good game and making the plays where needed and us not making the plays and hurting ourselves with penalties and turnovers. There was a lot of fight in this team and there were a lot of good things to take away from it. It is tough when you lose, especially when you lose games that you should have won. There’s been more games that we’ve lost that we should have won, and it will come to a point where that changes, but it can’t be the would of, could of, should of anymore. There is a lot of great stuff on film. There is a lot of bad stuff, and there is a lot that we can correct on going into the bye week before we play the best team in the NFL.”


On overcoming adversity to win games:

“We have to overcome adversities. We had turnovers every which way. We were beyond in the game and had the game in our hands, and we let it get away. That is something that everyone in the locker room has to live with and take with them over the next couple of days to relax and enjoy their families or whatever it is to get ready for the Patriots.”


On WR Jarvis Landry’s catch that was ruled short of the end zone:

“It is pretty obvious to me, but that wasn’t the call. We don’t sit here and talk about the referees. I have never been one to do that. The call was what it was. You have to respect the call and keep it moving. It is tough.”


On why he doesn’t complain about referees:

“It is like complaining about life. You can complain, but is it going to get anything done? There is nothing that can be said and there is nothing that we can do right now to change any call. It’s the bottom line so why would I waste time even talking about it?”


On how the team will bounce back from the loss:

“I think we will see. Only time will tell. That goes with everything. Time tells all.”


On QB Baker Mayfield’s toughness after playing through injury:

“It’s hard. That is all I told him when he came back on the field that it is hard. He is a competitor and he is going to dig deep so he does not come out of the game He couldn’t run but he still is going to go back out there and help this team even when he is banged up. He gave us his all but we came up short today.”


On the team’s 2-4 record:

“The funny thing is, is that Cleveland has had this reputation of losing, and we are all sitting here trying to figure out why we didn’t win. Not like ‘oh we lost another game’ but trying to figure out why we didn’t win. This is a team that could possibly be 6-0 or 5-1, but that is not our record. We are 2-4, and we are 2-4 for a reason, so that is something that we have to figure out for the back stretch. This stuff is going to happen but it is a long season. Teams can catch on fire and teams can win 5 games in a row, but it is not going to happen like that. Us as a team, we have to find a way to eliminate all of those things but I was very proud of us today for our effort. I woke up today and on my mind I wanted to bring a lot of energy. I just hate losing and at times I feel that in the past, I have let this team down as far as not bringing the energy every single day and it is something that I will never not bring to the field again. I need to be a leader and continue being a better teammate, and pushing those guys is something that I put on my plate.”


On what Coach said to the team postgame:

“We are tired of the almost good and not enough talk. That is just the mentality we have to have, and we can’t sit here and think that we played well and just move onto the next one. That was the last of the we should have won’s and now we have to win those games period.”


RB Nick Chubb:

On the emotions after QB Baker Mayfield threw the interception intended for RB Dontrell Hilliard: 

“It is tough. You can’t say this or that. It is a turnover. Let’s just get our defense out there and see if we can get a stop and get the ball back and get a chance to score.”


On the sequence of plays at the goal line with the challenge: 

“Yeah, it was tough. If things do not go our way, we have to keep playing. We ended up getting the ball back and scoring. At the end of the day, it really did not matter because we scored later on. You have to make every play count, and it is just a tough situation.”


On how much pain Mayfield was in: 

“He played through it. He is tough and he is a warrior. He is not going to go down easy. I know he got hit pretty hard, but he fought through it and he was there for us.”


On if the Browns still have optimism about the season: 

“Yeah, we fight every game. This team is not going to give up easy. We have a long season. Anything can happen. We are all for it. Our heads are up. We are ready to get back to work.”


DL Myles Garrett:

On if he is surprised at the team’s 2-4 record:

“You get what you deserve. You get what you work for, and today, we didn’t make the plays.”


On the officiating:

“I am not worried about the refs. If we don’t make the right decisions or right calls, right or wrong, we pay for it.”


On his frustrations with the team’s struggles:

“I am frustrated. We had a chance to win, and we didn’t capitalize. We had a chance to seal the game, but we didn’t. I am worried about this, but once 24 hours hits, I am onto the next one. Right now, it hurts.”


On if the Browns’ bye week is coming at the right time:

“This team needs wins.”


T Chris Hubbard:

On the officiating:

“We can’t be worried about the officials. We have to keep playing as well as we can, and we have to keep that momentum going when we have the ball in our hands. No matter what the officials do, we have to keep playing football.”


On the adversity Head Coach Freddie Kitchens has been preaching:

“We just need to overcome it. No matter what they throw at us, we have to be able to overcome it. Whether it is First and 15 or whatever the situation, when the play is called, we have to go out there and execute. When Coach trusts us, we have to make a play.”


On the goal line play with WR Jarvis Landry:

“I have no idea. All I know is that when I saw the replay, he crossed the plane. There is nothing we can do about that now though. We have to keep on until next week.”


On the Browns’ offensive mindset early on:

“We wanted to hurry up and keep the gas pedal going on those guys. We knew that if we kept the ball in our hands that we could go out and make plays, and when that happens, no one can stop us.”


S Damarious Randall

On how heartbreaking it is to lose a game like that: 

“Definitely a heart breaker, but it definitely was on us. We just have to live it, period. We were digging ourselves a hole. We do not feel like that game was as close as it was, but we dug ourselves in a hole and we could not get out.”


On the frustration behind the turnovers: 

“We are just going to keep learning from it. We are just going to keep learning, keep improving and keep getting better each and every week.”


On the Browns staying in the game, despite the turnovers and blocked punt: 

“They have a very good quarterback. We were trying to get as many stops as possible for our offense. We just obviously did not get enough. Just keep pushing forward. Go watch film tomorrow and get a couple of days off and rest for the bye week and come back for New England.”
