Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has been a journeyman since coming into the league as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots back in 2009. While he has only started three games total in his career, he looks at least like the short-term solution in Cleveland.
Hoyer is the poster child of being average, as he is 6-foot-3 and weighs 215 pounds, has an average throwing arm and average accuracy as well. What Hoyer has to look out for against the Buffalo Bills is mainly rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso, as he currently leads the league with four interceptions and is making plays off of deflected passes. He has a true nose for the ball, wherever it is.
Another player that he will have to keep his eye out for is Mario Williams, who shouldn’t be that hard to miss as he is 6-foot-6 and weighs 295 pounds, and is an absolute sacking monster. If the Bills can put consistent pressure on Hoyer just like they did last week against Joe Flacco, this could turn into an extremely long game for the journeyman quarterback who is on his fourth team since 2009.
It should be an amazing matchup between the Bills and Browns in prime time at FirstEnergy Stadium, and we will see if Hoyer’s hot hand continues. Also, it’ll be interesting to see if Alonso will rack up his fifth interception in as many games.
