Read some of what cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot wrote about John Johnson III saying the Browns’ defense needs to be on point against Herbert and the Chargers.

John Johnson III knows that if the Browns got burned by their first four opponents, the Chargers can fire them up.

“They’re No. 1 by the way, so if there’s one game you need to get up and get locked in, it’s this one,” Johnson said Wednesday. “That’s the focus on our room in particular. We’ve had a few flashes of good things, but I think every game we have to lock up or we’re going to be set on fire because they’ve done it at any who since last year too. If there’s a game we need our best high school effort for, it’s this one.

The Chargers, led by quarterback Justin Herbert, are No. 1 in the NFL with 307.3 passing yards per game. Herbert is No. 1 with 1,250 passing yards and fifth with nine touchdown passes. The Browns, meanwhile, are last in the NFL with 12.5 points allowed in the fourth quarter, including 17 points each against the Jets and Panthers, and 13 against the Falcons.

In three of their four games, they’ve given up huge fourth-quarter plays, including a 75-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the win over Carolina, Joe Flacco’s 66-yard pass to Corey Davis in the loss to the Jets and the 42-yard pass to Olamide Zaccheaus in Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Falcons. The Browns also gave up a 42-yard run in the final quarter to Atlanta.

“Yeah, we’re pretty bad in the fourth quarter right now,” Grant Delpit said. “That’s not what the big teams do.”

His solution?

“You just have to be locked up for 60 minutes and have that killer mentality,” Delpit said. “We have a standard to meet to be a No. 1 defense in the top half. We have to stick together and play four quarters.

Unlike Robbie Anderson’s 75 yards in Week 1 and Davis’ 66 yards in Week 2, the 42-yard pass to Zaccheaus wasn’t missed coverage. The Browns were on cover 3, two players bit the wrong one, and Marcus Mariota went overtime and found a gaping hole in the area.

“It wasn’t really communication, it was just like a technical issue,” Johnson said. “We also have a progression in defense and it was a long, extended game and we just lost the guy, he got lost we didn’t see him and he ended up wide open so this n It wasn’t really a communication thing, it was as if Mariota had shaken things up and we had just lost a guy. It’s something we can easily fix, but it can’t happen.
