Donovan Peoples-Jones torches defender with double move, scores huge TD for Browns
Donovan Peoples-Jones has made his biggest impact for the Cleveland Browns as a return man, but with KhaDarel Hodge out of the Browns lineup with a hamstring injury, Peoples-Jones got the chance to fill the regular three-spot in the Browns receiver corps against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
He made the most of the opportunity.
After dropping a potential touchdown on the opening drive, the rookie out of Michigan made up for the miscue early in the second quarter with a 75-yard touchdown catch.
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield faked the handoff to Kareem Hunt and launched a deep ball to a wide-open Peoples-Jones to give the Browns a 27-4 lead.
A sixth-round pick by Cleveland in the 2020 NFL Draft, Peoples-Jones, who declared early for the draft following his junior season, finished his career at Michigan with 103 catches for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns in three years while averaging 8.3 yards per punt return with two scores.
