Browns' Little leads AFC North in drops
By Jamison Hensley
I know there are some things that I don't need to tell you like Mike Wallace is really fast and Joe Flacco has a strong arm. The same goes for the fact that Browns wide receiver Greg Little leads the AFC North in dropped passes.
Little is credited with three drops (doesn't it seem like more?) by ESPN Stats & Information. That's tied for the sixth-most in the league. He had a critical one at the goal line in a seven-point loss at Baltimore last Thursday. Cowboys tight end Jason Witten leads the NFL with six drops.
There's only two other AFC North players who have more than one drop this season: Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and Browns fullback Owen Marecic, both of whom have two.
The Browns top the division with seven dropped passes as a team. The Bengals are second with five and the Steelers are third with three. The Ravens have the best hands in the AFC North, dropping one of 154 pass attempts.
