Telvin Smith jersey cheap for sale
Even before Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer took his first snap on Sunday afternoon, Telvin Smith already had him figured out.
Throughout last week’s preparations, Smith studied Kizer on tape and paid particular attention to the way he repeatedly stared down receivers before attempting throws.
On a rain-soaked, cold and snowy afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium, Smith didn’t have to wait long to expose Kizer’s flaw during the Jaguars’ 19-7 victory that kept the Browns (0-10) winless.
It came on the first play during the Browns’ second drive of the game when Kizer locked into receiver Corey Coleman as he ran his intermediate route into the flat.
Smith anticipated the play perfectly, jumping in front of Coleman to make the interception and 26-yard return.
Four plays later, the Jaguars scored their first touchdown on a 10-yard Blake Bortles pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis.
“Earlier this week, I said he (Kizer) was a rookie quarterback and we were going to expose that,” Smith said. “In film, we seen that he was going to stare stuff down. On the interception, I knew it was going to be a glance and he threw it. I saw the formation and I knew what we were getting on that play and I played it. I was there all day and shouldn’t have threw it.”
Smith’s interception turned out be the start of another solid overall performance by the Jaguars’ defense. They forced five turnovers, including two in the final two minutes.
They also had five sacks to push their NFL-leading total to 40.

The Browns had only four yards of total offense in the first quarter and finished the game converting only 3-of-13 third-down attempts.
The Jaguars (7-3) came in as the NFL’s top-ranked scoring defense (14.9 ppg). Through they didn’t quite meet safety Tashaun Gipson bold predictions of shutting the Browns out and putting up 40 points, Cleveland’s only touchdown was on a 27-yard touchdown pass from Kizer to running back Duke Johnson in the second quarter after the Jaguars were leading 10-0.
“It was just a great team win,” said Smith, who signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension in October. “Obviously Gip put it out there with us this week and we give them something to chew on getting ready for the game. But like I say every week, if we do what we do, there’s not a team in the league that can play with us. What we realize is if everybody keeps playing, the plays are going to come. Whether it be at the beginning of some games when we get out fast and blow teams out or whether at the end, it’s going to come.”
In addition to his interception, Smith scored a fourth-quarter touchdown when he recovered a Kizer fumble that was caused on Yannick Ngakoue’s sack at the Cleveland 9-yard line with 1:24 remaining.
It’s Smith’s second defensive touchdown this season. In a Week 5 victory at Pittsburgh, Smith returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown and had 10 tackles to win the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
“This was another one of those games where the defense had to hold it down and make plays and even score,” linebacker Myles Jack said. “Telvin is in a league of his own. That’s that $50 million play, he’s out there balling. To be able to play next to a guy like that and see him make plays all the time, it just motivates me to go even harder.”
