Brandon Weeden Throws Two Passes On One Play [VIDEO]
Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden completed two passes on the same play. The problem is that only one of the completions counted.
Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden did something that was impressive and stupid on the same play. Weeden completed two passes on one play during a 41-27 loss by the Cleveland Browns to the New York Giants on Sunday at Metlife Stadium.
Weeden showed a lot of skill and focus by catching his own pass and then completing a touchdown to Browns tight end Jordan Cameron. However, he showed a lack of awareness because throwing two passes on one play is totally illegal in the NFL. The Browns were penalized five yards. Weeden then threw an interception to Chase Blackburn on the very next play.
I would actually consider Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow doing the exact same thing as Weeden to be a positive sign. That would mean that they actually completed a pass in the first place. Okay, that’s a blatant cheap shot, but Sanchez is only completing 49.2% of his passes heading into the Monday Night Football game tonight against the Houston Texans. Tebow completed less than 50% of his passes last year for the Broncos.
You can hear Sanchez and Tebow in action tonight on our brother station Q103. Coverage begins at 7:30pm ET. Game 2 of the New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles series can be heard on 104.5 The Team beginning at 7:30pm ET tonight.
