CLEVELAND (AP) — Loose with the football, DeShone Kizer held onto his starting job.

Cleveland’s rookie quarterback, who upped his NFL-leading interception total to 19 with two more picks Sunday, will start this week when the winless Browns play in Chicago.

“It is still DeShone,” coach Hue Jackson said Monday.

Following Sunday’s 27-10 loss to Baltimore, Jackson raised the possibility of a change at quarterback after Kizer had three more turnovers and appeared to take the loss — Cleveland’s 14th straight — particularly hard.

However, Jackson said he feels Kizer is mentally and physically prepared to continue a season that has been brutally tough on the league’s youngest quarterback.

“If he wasn’t up to the challenge, then if I needed to make a change, then I would,” Jackson said. “I think he is up to the challenge. He has some improving to do. He has some work to do this week to continue to get better, but he is going to start at quarterback for us.”

The 21-year-old Kizer has been wildly inconsistent for the Browns (0-14), who haven’t surrounded him with enough talent and yet are trying to decide if he can be their long-term QB. From week to week, Kizer’s performances have ranged from solid to sorry,

“I hate to say it this way but it is true — we have seen a pendulum swing like this with DeShone,” Jackson said. “This week it did not go so well. The next week he plays well. This week he does not go as well. The next week he plays well. Hopefully, that cycle holds true and this week he comes back, gets himself ready and he goes out there and plays his tail off.

“That is the way I see it and I still think with him playing with his teammates that he gives us the best opportunity to get us a victory.”

The Browns have two weeks to avoid becoming the second team to go 0-16, and they believe Kizer gives them the best chance to get a win despite his turnover troubles.

Against the Ravens, Kizer forced one pass into triple coverage in Baltimore’s end zone and badly overthrew a receiver for another pick. He finished 20 of 37 for 146 yards and got sacked twice, fumbling on a strip that was recovered by the Ravens for a touchdown.

But despite the rough outing, Jackson feels the only way for Kizer to improve is to keep playing him. Jackson has tried to modify his game plan to suit Kizer, but it’s on his young QB to value the ball.

“He has to find the small wins for himself as he is in those situations and playing,” Jackson said. “He has to do a better job of taking care of the ball, and he has to do a better job of understanding the situation as it happens.”

Kizer’s body language wasn’t good after the game, prompting Jackson to entertain a switch. It’s understandable he would be dejected, but several of his teammates feel Kizer has grown despite the lumps he’s taken.

“DeShone, being a young guy, a rookie coming in, has handled this as well as he can,” center JC Tretter said. “It has obviously been a long year. I applaud him and his ability to come in each and every day looking to get better and looking to develop and understand more of the offense and understand more looks. In the building, we see the progress of him recognizing defenses, picking up blitzes and everything like that.

“He is doing everything you ask for him to. Obviously, the results haven’t been there as a team, but I think DeShone, his attitude and the way he prepares is exactly what you look for.”

This week’s game starts a stretch of three road games in the final four weeks of the regular season for the Raiders, with the team also traveling to Philadelphia to play the Eagles (Week 16) and Los Angeles to play the Chargers (Week 17) after a home game next week against the Dallas Cowboys.

Last Sunday, the Raiders won their matchup with the New York Giants by a final score of 24-17. For the second straight week, the defense held the opponent under 300 yards of total offense, allowing just 265 yards to the Giants.

DL Denico Autry also got in on the action, posting his third sack in two games. RB Marshawn Lynch paced the offense, tallying his first 100-yard game as a Raider, rushing for 101 yards on 17 carries and one touchdown, a 51-yarder to open the scoring in the first quarter. WR Cordarrelle Patterson led the team’s receivers, totaling 97 yards on four receptions, including a 59-yard catch and run late in the game, helping Oakland seal the victory. WR Johnny Holton hauled in his third touchdown of the season and RB DeAndré Washington also rushed for a 9-yard score. P Marquette King was once again effective throughout the contest, averaging 50.0 yards per punt and pinning the Giants inside their own 20-yard line twice.

Next week, the Raiders will host their final home game of the regular season with a matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The Chiefs will host the Chargers at Arrowhead next Saturday night.

CORDARRELLE PATTERSON

WR Cordarrelle Patterson ranks first among wide receivers in the NFL over the last two weeks in yards after catch, totaling 128 yards on just seven receptions and eight targets. Making the most of his opportunities, Patterson has recorded a 50-plus-yard reception in the fourth quarter in each of the last two games to help seal the victory for the Raiders.

Additionally, C.P. has averaged a staggering 18.3 yards after the catch per reception since Week 12, the most among qualifying receivers. The next closest is Sterling Shepard with an 11.3 average.

ATLANTA — Every week, Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn emphasizes the importance of winning on third down and in the red zone. Sunday’s loss showed exactly why Quinn harps on it all the time.

The Falcons felt good about themselves entering the matchup with the Minnesota Vikings as they had the league’s top third-down offense, converting 48.1 percent of those opportunities. Plus, the defense made some big stops in last week’s win over Tampa Bay.

But it all went for naught, as third-down struggles on both sides and settling for field goals on offense eventually led to the Falcons’ demise in a 14-9 loss.

Not only did the Falcons’ three-game winning streak come to an end, but now the playoff picture becomes a little fuzzier. The Falcons are 7-5 and among the group of teams trying to hold on to a wild-card spot right next to the Seattle Seahawks, whom they beat in Week 11. It won’t be easy for the Falcons to secure a postseason berth with the league’s toughest schedule to finish, which includes two games against the rival New Orleans Saints and a rematch with a defense just as tough and physical as the Vikings’ in the Carolina Panthers.

In order to make a playoff push, the Falcons can’t fall back on bad habits like they did against the Vikings. They were 1-for-10 on third down a week after going 11-of-14 against the Buccaneers. Some of the seven penalties the Falcons picked up contributed to their third-down woes.

“I thought we had too many third-and-7s,” quarterback Matt Ryan said. “I think one of the points of emphasis for us during the week was to try and be efficient on first and second down. We didn’t do a good job of that.

“They are a very good defense. We knew it was going to be tough sledding at times, but we’ve got to be more productive and put ourselves in better positions. When we get our chances on third downs, we’ve got to make some plays.”

The Falcons were 0-for-1 in the red zone and settled for three Matt Bryant field goals for the entire day — and Bryant even missed a key 45-yarder late. The players totally backed Quinn’s decision to go with that field goal with 5 minutes, 4 seconds remaining and the Falcons facing fourth-and-4 from the Vikings’ 27 rather than gamble and go for it. Besides, they needed as many points as possible with touchdowns hard to come by against a stingy Vikings defense.

The only other time the Falcons scored in single digits this season was a 23-7 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 7.

“We just have to get back in rhythm,” Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones said. “Today, we were just missing offensively. … From our standpoint, we’re way better than nine points. We just have to get it fixed.”

Defensively, the Falcons missed tackles and let the Vikings go over 100 yards rushing. The defense allowed NFC Offensive Player of the Month Case Keenum to complete 25 of 30 passes for 227 yards with two touchdowns and a 120.4 passer rating. They allowed the Vikings to convert 6 of 12 third downs, including a crucial third-and-4 in the late stages that resulted in Keenum’s 22-yard connection with Adam Thielen, a conversion that all but sealed the victory. Allowing the Vikings to convert those third downs was a reason Minnesota had the ball almost 10 minutes longer.

“That ain’t good at all,” Falcons defensive back Ricardo Allen said of the Vikings converting 50 percent on third down. “That kept a lot of their drives going. We just have to get off the field on third down.

“They didn’t really throw any challenging balls. [Keenum] took what we gave him. It wasn’t like they were out there dicing us up or anything. Whatever we gave them, they took. And if they had to punt the ball, they punted the ball.”

Back on offense, Ryan couldn’t find that connection with Jones, who had just two catches for 24 yards on six targets while matched up a lot against Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes. Devonta Freeman rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries in his return from a concussion, which is a positive sign for the Falcons for the remainder of the season. But it didn’t help the cause Sunday.

The Falcons’ next challenge is a quick turnaround, with not much time to prepare for Thursday night’s NFC South showdown with the rival and division-leading Saints. One aspect the Falcons do have in their favor is the game being at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as the final part of a three-game homestand.

“It’s already preparation for Thursday night,” Allen said. “We’ve got to go get it.”

Cleveland Browns

CLEVELAND — DeShone Kizer was a glum fellow as he strode to the podium following the Cleveland Browns’ 10th loss in 10 games this season, a 19-7 drubbing by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“It hurts,” Kizer said.

Clearly.

Because Kizer struggled badly in this loss, personally accounting for four turnovers — one that gave the Jaguars a defensive touchdown, another that set up a touchdown.

“I am trying to do whatever I can to string together some games and continue to prove my development to my teammates and to continue to earn the respect of them,” Kizer said. “This is the first game that I have come off of the field feeling as if I didn’t prove that I have developed yet.”

This was a candid admission from a proud player. But as his rookie season continues, Kizer is not approaching the level of consistency that the Browns would like to see. With the team almost assured of the first overall pick in the draft in April, the likelihood that they select a quarterback is becoming cement-like solid with each game.

Kizer’s two interceptions give him 14 for the season, a league high. He twice lost the ball while being pressured by the Jaguars’ relentless pass rush. The second gave Jacksonville a defensive touchdown.

Kizer’s second interception was a short throw to Rashard Higgins toward the sideline that sailed high.

“You get paid not to miss in this league,” Kizer said.

The first followed a run fake when Kizer did not see middle linebacker Telvin Smith slide into the throwing lane.

“It was one heck of a play by the backside linebacker for playing through his coverage into where the ball was going,” Kizer said.

“He needs to see that guy,” coach Hue Jackson said. “He knows that. It is something he has to work through.”

Kizer did come back with a nice 27-yard throw to Duke Johnson for a touchdown, but the Browns had nine possessions (and one kneel down to end the half) after they cut the deficit to 10-7. They gained a total of 124 yards and had eight first downs on those nine possessions — and 36 of those yards came when the game was out of reach and less than a minute remained.

There are contributing factors to Kizer struggling.

The Browns played the league’s top-ranked scoring defense and the group is also tops in sacks. The Jaguars have a dominant, nasty, relentless defense.

Jackson said the Browns are a young team prone to inconsistency. He’s right about that, and Kizer is one of the youngest players in the league.

And Jackson reiterated that his team needs to be “almost perfect” to win a game, which is a statement on his roster.

“That means no turnovers,” Jackson said. “Fundamentally we have to do everything right to have a chance.”

In consecutive weeks since the bye, the Browns had chances. But they lost to Detroit when they scored 24 because the defense didn’t play well. Against Jacksonville, the defense played well but they lost because the offense scored seven.

Six games remain and Jackson emphasized that Kizer will absolutely start against the Bengals on Sunday and for every game he can after that.

“Let’s let him play,” Jackson said. “Let’s let him play this thing out. As long as he is healthy, let’s keep putting him out there. I want to walk away from this season knowing exactly what DeShone Kizer is top to bottom. I think he deserves that.

“I know this is tough on him.”

Tougher, no doubt, than Kizer ever imagined.
