For all of the work put in during the offseason training program, in private workouts with the offense in Los Angeles during the summer break, through training camp, and then, in the preseason, the Cleveland Browns' offense struggled to find consistency in the 2018 regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Thank you for signing up for the Top 3 Newsletter. According to Nate Ulrich of The Beacon Journal, Gordon has voiced that he wants to make a strong impact on the game with his play alongside Taylor this season. I think that is the goal, and obviously, he plays a part in that, but so does everybody else. "We've got to give him opportunities, and I think we'll do that".

"Leash? I mean, he's the quarterback", Jackson said.

"You see where you can try to attack and exploit some of those areas", Taylor said.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon had a quiet first game, he scored his first touchdown of the season late in the 4th quarter but was only targeted a handful of times despite playing over 60 snaps. However, Steelers defender Cameron Sutton read the play correctly and corralled the interception. Jackson said he was putting his foot down, and Gordon would not get any preferential treatment. "Got to throw it out there".

Taylor has received plenty of criticism from media and fans for his poor ball placement in the opener, but Gordon stressed "it's definitely not all on him". Now they're determined to spearhead an offensive turnaround Sunday when the Browns (0-0-1) visit the New Orleans Saints (0-1).

"When you look back at the film, which we did, there were things that we beat ourselves on", said Taylor, "Hats off to a good defense, but there were some things that they did not necessarily take away from us, and there were things that we can clean up and get better at". It takes more than just him. He has to play better. He has a strong arm that could allow for Gordon to make plays down the field that should bode well for the Browns to feature that in their offensive game plan. "I think in the National Football League, that's the biggest jump for most teams - after that first week. We need to play better".

"We did not play very well yesterday, let's just be honest".
