QB Jacoby Brissett (11.20.22)


On if the early change at C led to issues on offense today:

“No. I just have to be better in a couple of those key moments.”


On what occurred on the fumbled snap exchange and if there were issues with it throughout today’s game:

“It was only one.”


On why the two QB sneaks did not work, given the team’s success on QB sneaks this season:

“The first one, I just didn’t get a good read on it. The second one, I thought I got it, but I didn’t get it. I just have to find a way to get those like I always do. That was a very key moment obviously going for it on fourth down. I have to be better in those situations.”


On if missing C Ethan Pocic for most of today’s game was a big factor for the Browns offense:

“No. (G) Hjalte (Froholdt) came in and did a great job. Obviously, on short notice. Hats off to him. I thought he did a good job.”


On missed opportunities on offense in today’s game:

“Especially when you get down in the red zone, we have to score touchdowns, especially versus a good team like that. We got down there a few times. One time, we settled for a field goal or two times maybe. We just have to be better in those situations, and we have to find a way to execute better and finish better.”


On how frustrating it is to have held the Bills to just 12 yards of offense early in the game and not establish a larger lead:

“Obviously, like you said, we started so strong. You felt the energy. We felt our will being imposed on them. We shot ourselves in the foot. That has obviously been the theme a couple of games. We just have to really hone in. It is getting to that point in the season where the margins are getting even slimmer. I know I have to be better in those moments, and we as a team and offense have to be better in those moments.”


On what the Bills did defensively to limit RB Nick Chubb and the Browns running game:

“You look at it on the sideline. We are looking at the pictures, and it is us. It is not them; it is us. That is what I mean shooting ourselves in the foot. Obviously, they are a good defense. Hats off to them. They came out and won. A lot of it was self-imposed.”


On the team’s mindset heading into the Tampa Bay game next week following today’s loss:

“Same thing. Our mindset was to come out here and fight because we knew it was going to be a 60-minute one. I don’t think that changes. If anything, we fight harder and we fight longer. We have to figure it out.”


On the strong performance of Browns WRs today, including WRs Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones:

“I think those guys came and played well.  Obviously, making big plays. We obviously called on those two guys a lot. We knew we had an opportunity in their secondary to go after them. Those guys answered the call and made a lot of plays for us.”
