New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins did a lot of talking during the week leading up to his team’s matchup with the currently winless Cleveland Browns, much of it directed at wide receiver Terrelle Pryor. Though Pryor has become a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver for the Browns and is having a hell of a year, Jenkins refused to think of his duty covering the former quarterback as a challenge, calling Pryor “just another receiver.”
Pryor went for 131 yards on Sunday, though much of that came against cornerbacks other than Jenkins. It was another Browns receiver, a rookie, who gave Jenkins more trouble than he bargained for.

With the Browns down 20-6 in the fourth quarter and the ball at the Giants’ 25-yard line, Corey Coleman, the Browns’ first-round pick out of Baylor, lined up on the left side of the field opposite Jenkins. On the snap, Coleman streaked to the 10-yard line, then faked as if he was breaking inside to his right before jerking back to his left. Jenkins bit on the fake, hard, almost falling over in the process, allowing Coleman to stand wide open in the corner of the end zone and haul in the pass for 6.
Jenkins’ squad got the win, and the Browns fell to 0-12, but Jenkins definitely needed some ice for those ankles.
