RB D'Ernest Johnson Spoke to the Media 11/15/21

On how he is feeling physically today:

“I am pretty sore. That is it – pretty sore.”

On if he expected to get even more carries prior to Sunday’s game:

“I am just going out there when my number is called and trying to make the most of each opportunity I got. We had a gameplan, and when my number was called, just tried to make the most of it.”

On the Browns’ success in the running game on the opening drive and what the Patriots did differently to defend the run later in the game:

“Basically, they filled the box more and they played well. They played well throughout the whole game.”

On if the Patriots defense changed a lot of their scheme or personnel following the opening drive:

“Not much. They just played well, really.”

On why the Browns offense was not as productive yesterday:

“We have to be better on third down. On third down, we have to capitalize more. That is something that we understand that we need to focus on. Just need to get better on third downs.”

On how the Browns’ preparations for the Patriots matched what the Patriots defense did on gameday:

“Basically, going into the game, we knew that the Patriots were a great defense, they have a great overall team and they are going to play physical. We went out there and were physical the first drive, and we did everything right. We just have to get better. As an offense, we have to get better and capitalize when we need to capitalize.”

On confidence the Browns can rebound from yesterday’s tough loss and accomplish the team’s goals for the season:

“Every loss feels bad. We got beat, and we just have to move on from it. We have everything still ahead of us. This week, we just have to prepare this week, go out there and beat Detroit. We have to focus on going 1-0.”

On ensuring the Browns do not potentially overlook the Lions, who are 0-8-1:

“In this league, you never want to take anybody lightly because anyone is capable of beating anyone each week. We have to prepare well this week, and we have to be dominant come game time.”
