Rivers Pick 6, safety doom Colts in 32-23 loss to Browns

just a few time ago a new video titled Rivers’ Pick 6, safety doom Colts in 32-23 loss to Browns was published by the channel: News Live 24h

As informed in the youtube page by News Live 24h: CLEVELAND (AP) — Philip Rivers was brought to Indianapolis because of his poise and pedigree. He’d help the Colts stay competitive, keep winning.On Sunday, his mistakes cost them dearly.Rivers had an interception returned for a touchdown and was called for intentional grounding on a throw from the end zone for a safety in the fourth quarter as Indianapolis was beaten 32-23 by the Cleveland Browns.Signed to a one-year, $25 million free agent contract in March after 16 seasons with the Chargers, Rivers threw two interceptions and missed on several other throws as the Colts (3-2) had their three-game winning streak snapped by the 4-1 Browns.“Certainly not the way we thought it was going to go today,” Rivers said. “But it did.”The Colts were down 10 in the third quarter when Rivers stepped up in the pocket and was late on a crossing pattern to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton near Cleveland’s sideline. Safety Ronnie Harrison stepped in front, picked off Rivers’ throw and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown.Later, Rivers was under pressure in the back of the end zone from Browns star end Myles Garrett and hurriedly flung the ball out of bounds to avoid a sack without a receiver in the area. The safety put Cleveland up 29-20.“The interception for a touchdown killed us,\” said Rivers, who finished 21 of 33 for 243 yards and the two picks. “The other one I’d like back, too. Then obviously, the safety hurt as well. The offense gave them nine points.”More specifically, Rivers gave the Browns nine points.Those aren’t the kind of errors the Colts expected from a proven, 38-year-old quarterback like Rivers. But coach Frank Reich wasn’t pointing any fingers afterward.“You lose a game like this, and we all share in it,” Reich said. “Everyone shares in it.”Indy’s top-ranked defense was shredded by Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield in the first half before clamping down, and there were other missed assignments — like returner Nyheim Hines fair catching a punt inside the 5-yard line before the safety — so it wasn’t all Rivers’ fault.But his miscues stood out. They always do for the starting quarterback.“Philip is playing really good football. That is the least of my worries,” Reich said in defending Rivers. \”Philip is playing good football. You are going to have mistakes when you get in situations like that. I know we would want the interception back, but the safety, is on me.\”You take that away and you get that one mistake, in my mind, that was the big factor. That mistake was not the big factor, the safety, but the one big mistake with Philip was the interception. That is it.”Reich explained that he shouldn’t have put Rivers in a position to throw on first down with the ball backed up near the goal line. The Colts were supposed to “chip” Garrett on his rush, but that didn’t happen and he got close enough to force Rivers into a bad choice.Reich took the hit.“We had a play that we really liked, and I got a little too aggressive with the call,” he said. “Normally, with th
