What They're Saying: Browns comment on Raiders defense and 'premier pass rusher' Maxx Crosby

On the Raiders defense:

"It's a solid defense, starting up front. They play hard. They're good at pass rush. They're a really sound defense." – Browns quarterback Case Keenum

"I think they're a great team. They have all the attributes to be a great team. They have a great defensive line. They have good DBs, good linebackers." – Browns tight end David Njoku

On defensive end Maxx Crosby:

"Crosby has always been a guy that plays to the whistle, plays very hard. But this year, he's really taken a step up and he's become one of the more premier pass rushers in this league. It's not all sacks, it's pressures, it's his disruptiveness." – Browns guard Joel Bitonio

On the Raiders offense:

"They're very, very explosive. I think Carr has an incredible arm talent. Waller, Renfrow, just an impressive group of pass receivers. A running back that's a complete running back." – Browns Head Coach Kevin Stefanski

"They've got a lot of depth and they're leading the league in air yardage for a reason." – Browns linebacker Malcolm Smith

On quarterback Derek Carr:

"I think the world of Derek Carr. I think he's extremely capable of doing everything. He does stuff on the line of scrimmage, he can get the ball to his receivers, play action, take shots and all that." – Browns linebacker Malcolm Smith

"He's a very talented quarterback. He has the arm strength. He has the mobility. You can see he can read defenses." – Browns defensive coordinator Joe Woods

On wide receiver Hunter Renfrow:

"He's outstanding. When the ball goes to him, he catches it. He can run away from you. Quick, savvy, understands leverage, how to snap guys off, great hands." – Browns Head Coach Kevin Stefanski

On running back Josh Jacobs:

"He has really good balance and body control, runs behind his pads. He shows the power, very quick. He's a jump cutter." – Browns defensive coordinator Joe Woods
