, left Atlanta's subdued locker room and slowly walked down the corridor toward the team bus, pulling his wheeled luggage.He and the Falcons may have left their playoff hopes behind.Their three-game winning streak came to a screeching halt Sunday with a 28-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns, who put together one of their best all-around games in years against an Atlanta team that had seemingly turned its season around following a 1-4 start.But the Falcons (4-5) committed a costly turnover in the second half, gave up a Cleveland-record-breaking 92-yard touchdown run to Georgia native Nick Chubb, and failed to execute on a critical trip to the red zone when the game was still winnable.Afterward, Atlanta coach Dan Quinn was at a loss to explain his team's puzzling performance."I thought we had made some improvement and some progress, so it's a setback," Quinn said. "I like the fight of our guys. I know we'll come back to fight. When you miss an opportunity, whether it's a team that people on the outside say you should win or one people think the other way, I go into it and think you can get them all. When you don't get that done, for sure it stinks."It was shocking considering the Falcons were coming off a well-balanced win over Washington last week and had fought their way back into contention in the NFC South."It was disappointing," said Ryan, whose solid stats (38 of 52 for 330 yards and two touchdowns) obscured other offensive issues. "Obviously, you have to give credit to Cleveland. I thought they played really well and made a lot of good plays. We fell short and did not make enough plays when we needed to. We didn't play up to the standard that we are capable to playing."We need to do that as we move forward and get ready for next week. We have got to play better."Despite their problems, the Falcons were only down 14-10 at halftime, and with their high-powered offense http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/derrick-kindred-jersey
, a comeback seemed inevitable against the Browns (3-6-1), who had dropped four in a row.Atlanta got the ball to start the third quarter and got a 23-yard completion from Ryan to Julio Jones on the first play. After an 8-yard loss, Ryan connected on a 4-yard pass to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, who fumbled after a hit by Browns cornerback T.J. Carrie.Cleveland recovered at Atlanta's 41 and quickly drove for a touchdown as rookie QB Baker Mayfield hit Duke Johnson for an 11-yard score to give the Browns a 21-10 lead.Sanu's fumble had given the momentum right back to the Browns, but while they were shaky, the Falcons still seemed OK when they pinned Cleveland at its 8 after a punt.The worst was yet to come.On second down, Chubb found a crease on Atlanta's right side, cut toward the sideline and outran several Falcons to the end zone on the longest rushing play in Cleveland history 鈥?and the longest by any rookie since 1949.As Chubb raced by, Quinn, Ryan and everyone else dressed in black and red on the Atlanta sideline could only watch helplessly as any thoughts of a comeback completely vanished.Quinn didn't want to speculate on what went wrong on the play. Suffice to say, little went right.Still, the Falcons were hanging around in the fourth quarter when a series of head-scratching plays perhaps best sized up their day.Atlanta drove to Cleveland's 6 before a short pass was followed by two runs up the middle that were stopped by the Browns short of the end zone. Then, on fourth down and inches from a TD, Ryan was inexplicably in the shotgun before he threw a pass toward third-string tight end Eric Saubert, who had no chance of making a catch.Ryan's choice of targets was peculiar given his other options: Jones, Sanu and tight end Alex Hooper http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/trevon-coley-jersey
, who caught 10 passes. Even a running play made more sense.The hard-to-understand performance and loss overshadowed a personal milestone for Jones, who reached 10,000 career yards receiving faster than any player in NFL history."It's always tough when you lose," said Jones, who had seven catches for 107 yards and one TD. "We can make up stuff here and there, but at the end of the day it's on us. I'm going to keep saying that we can play better and we can do better, but with opportunities and things like that, we have to do better. That's it. That's the bottom line. We just have to get back to work." The Chargers won’t be at home for a while, but they kicked off an extended road trip in fine style Sunday.Melvin Gordon ran for three touchdowns, Philip Rivers threw two others and the Chargers improved to 4-2 with a 38-14 win over the Browns. They will be hanging out in Cleveland for the next few days and then they will fly to London on Thursday for their Week Seven game against the Titans.Keeping Gordon in the form he showed Sunday would increase chances that they’ll keep winning on the other side of the Atlantic. Gordon ran 18 times for 132 yards and added a pair of catches for 18 yards. Austin Ekeler chipped in 60 rushing yards and wide receiver Keenan Allen had 41 on four attempts as the Chargers ran the ball with great success all afternoon.Allen also had 62 receiving yards while Tyrell Williams picked up 118 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. That accounted for most of Philip Rivers’ work on the afternoon as the Chargers put Geno Smith in to mop up in the fourth quarter.The Browns were not able to do the same. Nick Chubb picked up 19 yards on one carry, but the other 18 attempts went for 38 yards as the Chargers forced Baker Mayfield, who was limping after slipping on a first down marker in the first half, to try to win the game. Mayfield threw a touchdown once the Browns were down 29 points, but wasn’t able to get in the end zone on six first half possessions that crossed midfield. He ended the day 22-of-46 for 238 yards and two interceptions while also taking four sacks.Cleveland is now 2-3-1 and they’ll be heading on the road to meet the Buccaneers next Sunday.
