Browns offense looks to improve heading into Week 2

But while supporting his QB, Jackson acknowledged that Taylor underthrew receiver Josh Gordon on a potential big play and he needs to be more accurate. He's got to continue to work to be in the right spot. So we need to practice and get better, and I think we will.

Last week, Jackson was adamant that Gordon would not be in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh after he missed more than three weeks of camp to address his personal health during his public battle with drugs and alcohol.

Taylor completed only 37.5 percent of his passes (15 of 40) for 197 yards and a touchdown with an interception, for a rating of 51.8. I know the sentiment I'm getting here is that it's him (who should be blamed for the offense's woes.) It's not. "That starts with myself".

"No quarterback wants to go and have the statistical things that we saw from this past week", Browns coach Hue Jackson said.

Gordon joins Jarvis Landry as the Browns' other starter, swapping with Antonio Callaway from the second unit.

There is a clear bond between Taylor and Gordon that could help the Browns achieve much success on the field in the passing game. "If that was the case, then I have no issue with it". "We move on." Gordon played 68 snaps, but was only targeted three times. "I am just going to keep on running until I have the opportunity".

"More than anything, I didn't even think about the targets until somebody mentioned that at the end of the game". "And I understand what you're saying".

Gordon, who used most of August to refocus himself, is expected to play a critical role in an offense that stands to be much improved from a year ago.

Known for his ability to take care of the football, Taylor took a gamble with a downfield throw late in the fourth quarter.

Jackson stiffened when he was asked what kind of leash he intends to have on Taylor, who was acquired in March from Buffalo and will start until the Browns feel the No. 1 overall pick Mayfield is ready. "Hats off to a good defense, but there were some things that (the Steelers) did not necessarily take away from us, and there were things that we can clean up and get better at".

"That's what the offense is created to do and that is what we are going to try and accomplish".
