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

1. Since returning to Cleveland, the Browns have won three of their four games against the Falcons with their most recent victory coming by the score of 26-24 in Atlanta back in 2014.

2. Baker Mayfield is 26-of-30 for 266 yards and two touchdowns when targeting Browns RB Duke Johnson.

3. Speaking of Johnson, he caught all nine of his targets in Week 9 for 78 yards and two touchdowns, the first game of Johnson’s career with multiple receiving touchdowns.

4. This should be another big Johnson game, as the Falcons are allowing a league-high 8.5 receptions per game to the running back position. They are also giving up 65 yards receiving per game to backs, third-most in the NFL.

5. Nick Chubb, who played at the University of Georgia, has taken 85 percent of the Browns carries since becoming the starter. That is the highest share of his team’s carries for any running back in the NFL over the last three weeks.

6. The Falcons are allowing 4.8 yards per carry this year, fourth-most in the NFL and their 10 rushing touchdowns surrendered are the fifth-most in the league.

7. The Atlanta passing attack ranks second in the NFL at 320.1 yards per game and is led by Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu. In fact, Ryan has thrown for 350-plus yards in a franchise-record three straight games headed into Sunday’s tilt with the Browns. The Browns just gave up 360 yards through the air to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Week 9.

8. Ryan is currently completing 71 percent of his passes, which is a career best, while averaging 8.9 yards per attempt (second-best of his career). He is on pace to throw for 5,368 yards with 37 touchdowns and only six interceptions, all of which would be the best marks of his career.

9. Julio Jones only has 10 touchdown catches in his last 38 games, but he has caught 331 passes for a ridiculous 3,785 yards during that span (both rank as the most in the NFL).

10. No team has converted a higher percentage of their third-down chances than the Falcons, who have picked up a first down 53.3 percent of the time.
