Stats and Facts: 10 things you have to know about Browns-Buccaneers

1. Browns offensive line coach Bob Wylie began his NFL career as the offensive line coach of the Buccaneers back in 1992. Tampa Bay’s current offensive line coach, George Warhop, spent five seasons with the Browns (2009-2013) in the same position. 

2. Browns rookie and starting left tackle Desmond Harrison (Oct. 8, 1993) was not even born when Wylie began his NFL coaching career.

3. The Browns have nine interceptions through six games, already more than the seven they recorded in all of the 2017 season. The Bucs have thrown nine interceptions in only five games this year, which is most in the NFL.

5. The Bucs have thrown for 1,842 yards through five games this year, which is the third-highest total through five games in NFL history, trailing only the Greatest Show on Turf 2000 Rams (1,973) and the Peyton Manning-led Broncos of 2013.

6.Mike Evans (96.8 yards per game) and DeSean Jackson (100.2) are the most productive wide receiver tandem in the NFL and the only teammate duo ranked in the top 10 in receiving yards per game in 2018.

7. Jason Pierre-Paul has a sack in four straight games. If he records a sack Sunday, he will be the first Tampa Bay player to have a sack in five straight since Simeon Rice back in 2002.

8. The Browns defense is second in the NFL in terms of forcing negative plays (46) and they lead the league with 29 runs for loss against it.

9. Not only is Raymond James Stadium the only stadium in the NFL with a Pirate Ship, it is also the only stadium in the league with two first names in its name. The only other stadium with a “human” name is Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
