Hue Jackson Says Browns Nearly Drafted Dak Prescott over Cody Kessler

Cody Kessler #6 of the Cleveland Browns

Trap game? You were anxious about a trap game? No one knew what to expect from the rook, but he has steered the team to a 6-1 record as well as 144-for-221 passing, 1773 yards, and 9 touchdowns against 2 interceptions.

Here are my thoughts on a dominating 35-10 Cowboys win at FirstEnergy Stadium.

In Week 1, rookie quarterback Dak Prescott impressed with his efficiency, but was ultimately underwhelming in a Dallas Cowboys loss.

Kessler, who has completed 89 of 133 passes for 947 yards and four touchdowns, will have a new target this week as rookie Corey Coleman will return after missing six games with a broken hand. I have always felt that if you get beat out or if you lose and someone is just better than you and plays better, then OK.

Aside from Terrelle Pryor, who has 41 receptions for 532 yards and three touchdowns, the receiving core is lackluster, with Andrew Hawkins the only veteran to help the young rookies.

On first and goal from the eight after a six-yard pass from rookie quarterback Dak Prescott to tight end Jason Witten, Elliott took the handoff, chop-stepped at the line of scrimmage and sprinted out wide to the left.

Sunday's game is set to begin at 1 p.m. ET in Cleveland and will be broadcast on television via FOX.

Cleveland enters week nine giving up 143.8 yards per game, which only trails San Francisco for the league's worst mark.

Prescott broke two of the Hall of Famer's team rookie records in the blowout, surpassing him in TDs and completions.

That proved to be the final score of the game as the 4th quarter was mostly uneventful.

Jones described his quarterback situation as a great one for his team because he has two great players in that position. He now has seven rushing touchdowns. As long as he's healthy, the team should be able to find a trade partner because many teams have too much cap room and as noted before, there are plenty who could use a quarterback. The most impressive aspect of his game Sunday: regardless of how bad a play might've looked early, he nearly always found a way to get back to the line of scrimmage or gain a couple yards. Even if he doesn't end up breaking Eric Dickerson's rookie rushing record, Elliott is already putting together one of the finest rookie seasons in National Football League history.

Granted, these are two different players playing 15 years apart on two different teams, but they're strikingly similar, are they not? There was consistent pressure on the quarterback. Maliek Collins was the standout, collecting a pair of sacks in second half. Justin Durant had one and Anthony Hitchens and Damien Wilson combined on another.

"He has been good because of the way he practices every day throughout the week". Sean Lee was again around the ball often. For now, Kessler has the chance to show he deserves the job.

It's been interesting how this QB question in Dallas is building momentum as the season goes along and Romo gets better.

"You never want to make it about anything other than the team", he said. The Rams were anxious about Kurt Warner ever returning to form when he was injured in 2002 and opted to go with Marc Bulger, and while Warner eventually started playing well again, he may have never done so for the Rams.
