Sunday's Game Balls

Posted Sep 12, 2010

The Browns's broadcast team presented their game balls following the team's 17-14 loss at Tampa Bay.

Each week, the Browns’ broadcast team of Jim Donovan, Doug Dieken and Jamir Howerton join Staff Writer Matt Florjancic in awarding Game Balls to the player(s) they saw as having the greatest impact for the team in their most recent game.

In the Browns’ 17-14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, three players were awarded the game ball.

Donovan: “I’m going to give it to Mike Adams. I thought Mike Adams was all over the field, had the pick, special teams, the secondary. He just played great.”

Dieken: “Mike Adams had a good game, had an interception and a chance at another one, but he slipped down. Overall, I think Mike had quite a few tackles in the game, seven combined.”

Howerton: “I’m going to give my game ball to Mohamed Massaquoi. During the second preseason game, he was injured and he fought back from his injury. To see him stay focused and connect well and read the ball well on Jake’s throw, I thought it was really good passing and receiving. That’s going to be something to see as the season develops.

“It’s something to see him connect with Jake Delhomme.”

Florjancic: “My game ball goes to rookie safety T.J. Ward. In his NFL regular season debut, Ward led the Browns with 10 total tackles, including seven solo stops. He also had one tackle-for-loss, a forced fumble and a special teams tackle. He played hard and was a standout player for the Browns.”

Adams had one interception and three passes defended. He also registered five solo and seven total tackles against the Buccaneers. Both totals were second on the team, only to Ward.

Massaquoi caught two passes for 46 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown from quarterback Jake Delhomme with 2:48 remaining in the first quarter. Massaquoi’s catch gave the Browns a 7-0 lead over the Buccaneers.
