Bengals S Taylor Mays vs. Browns TE Jordan Cameron

Tight ends are favorite targets of inexperienced quarterbacks, and that proved especially true last week when Cameron caught six passes for 66 yards and three touchdowns from Brian Hoyer.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Cameron leads the Browns in receptions (20), receiving yards (269) and receiving touchdowns (four) this season thanks to his unique blend of size and speed.

“Cameron has really come into his own as a receiver,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said. “He’s a guy that’s very fast, a fluid runner, so you have to be conscious of him at all times.”

No one on the Bengals defense knows Cameron better than Mays, his former teammate at USC. Mays has struggled at times to cover receivers in the past, but at 6-3, 220 he matches up well with Cameron. Looks for the Bengals to keep a linebacker buzzing underneath Cameron while Mays covers over the top.

If Mays can take away one of Hoyer’s favorite targets, it will give the pass rush that extra beat of time to collapse the pocket and force bad throws or bad decision.
