BEREA https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Duke-Johnson-Jersey , Ohio (AP) — Jabrill Peppers has started playing self-defense.The Browns defensive back said Thursday — his 23rd birthday — that he has stopped going out in public by himself in downtown Cleveland following hostile confrontations with fans unhappy with the way he’s played.Peppers said he has endured verbal taunts and some joking in the past, but that lately some of the encounters have nearly gotten physical.“When you walk up on another man, that’s a hostile situation,” Peppers said following practice. “For me, I have way more to lose than the average guy. So it puts me in kind of a funky situation where I can’t even go get daily toiletries or things without having to worry about something like that.”Peppers did not give any specifics about the altercations. However, on Wednesday he told the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram about an “aggressive” exchange in a drug store where “my boy had to pull me away one time.”Peppers said he has been confronted numerous times and believes some of the grief he’s taken is because he went to Michigan and plays in a city where rival Ohio State fans are abundant.“Sometimes it’s more so jokes, but as of late it’s kind of a little bit more different situation than just verbal,” he said.Peppers also tried to clarify comments that Browns fans are “very, very wishy-washy.” The former Michigan star said he wasn’t referring to die-hard Browns fans, but rather to an overall environment that exits in Cleveland — and other cities.“This is the NFL and that’s how it is,” he said. “Love you when you’re doing good, and they don’t when you’re not. We know we have to play better. Obviously, I wasn’t talking about the fans as a whole — just more so the environment of an NFL franchise. We understand the city of Cleveland loves their Browns and wants to see us get back to how it’s supposed to be.“But that’s just the NFL. They love you when you’re doing good or not so much when you’re not.”Peppers said he has taken to covering up when he’s out shopping, but that hasn’t helped much.“I don’t want to walk into a store with a hoodie on, that’s just bad manners,” he said.The No. 25 overall pick in the 2017 draft, Peppers has not lived up to expectations and he knows that’s at the root of the backlash he’s getting from fans. He’s been moved around in Cleveland’s defense as the Browns try to figure out how to best use the 5-foot-11, 215-pounder who was one of the nation’s most impactful players in college but hasn’t had close to the same success as a pro.Peppers has also struggled returning punts and kicks Greg Joseph Jersey , and his lack of production has drawn the wrath of some Cleveland fans. He understands it’s up to him to change the narrative.But despite the recent negative experiences, he has not soured on playing in Cleveland.“I love the Browns. I love the city,” he said “I love how passionate the fans are and part of what I get is my fault.“I’m not playing up to my potential and they see that as well, so you can’t fault the people for feeling how they feel. You just gotta take it with a grain of salt and do what you gotta do to get better.” How’s THAT for a halftime adjustment?While the rest of the Buffalo Bills jogged into the locker room at halftime of their game against the Los Angeles Chargers, cornerback Vontae Davis jogged in, then just kept on going.He quit at halftime — a jaw-dropping decision that left his teammates and coaches shaking their heads.“Pulled himself out of the game. He communicated to us that he was done,” coach Sean McDermott said after the Bills fell 31-20.Later, Davis posted on Twitter that he was, in fact, calling it a career.“This isn’t how I pictured retiring from the NFL,” he wrote. “But today on the field, reality hit me and hard. I shouldn’t be out there anymore.”And so, he left.In case you missed it, here were other hot topics after the second Sunday of the NFL season:80 TOUCHDOWNS: Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs is on pace to throw 80 touchdown passes this season.Last season’s first-round draft pick threw six TDs against Pittsburgh to bring his total to 10 this year — surpassing Charley Johnson, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning for the most over the first two weeks of an NFL season.“You never expect to have 10 touchdowns at this point in the season,” Mahomes said. “But I knew with this offense, and the weapons that we have, and the scheme coach (Andy) Reid has drawn up Jabrill Peppers Color Rush Jersey , that we had a chance to be really, really good, and the possibilities are endless.”Kansas City won 42-37 for its first victory at Pittsburgh in 32 years.HARDLY RECOGNIZABLE: Yes, football fans, that is 14-year veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick tearing through opposing defenses.And yes, that was Fitzpatrick wearing gold chains , a half-zipped jacket and a pair of Aviator sunglasses after his latest triumph.After his second straight 400-yard, four-touchdown game and Tampa Bay’s second straight surprising win, Fitzpatrick rummaged through receiver DeSean Jackson’s locker to outfit himself for his postgame interview.Asked if any of what he was wearing was his, the thickly bearded Fitzpatrick responded: “The chest hair is mine.”Filling in for the suspended Jameis Winston, Fitzpatrick insists he’s not letting all the success go to his head.“I think we just have to stay humble,” he said, as one of the receiver’s pendants sparkled on his chest. “We’ve got to make sure we know how to handle success and all those things. We can’t change who we are.”Really. Don’t let the gold chains fool you.KICKERS WANTED: Last week, Zane Gonzalez’s inability to convert a field goal from a makeable range turned a potential win into a tie. This week, he missed four kicks and the Browns lost.Gonzalez missed two field goals and two extra points in the second half, including one of each over the final 76 seconds, all of which played into a 21-18 loss to New Orleans. The last miss was a game-tying attempt from 52 yards that sailed well right of the goal post.“It snowballed,” Gonzalez said. “I was pulling them E.J. Gaines Color Rush Jersey , and the last one I pushed it because I was overcompensating. I get paid to make those kicks, and I have to make them.”Last week, Gonzalez had a 43-year field goal blocked as time expired in overtime and the Browns settled for a tie with Pittsburgh.This week, another NFL tie came courtesy of similar kicking problems. Minnesota’s Daniel Carlson missed a pair of field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, in a 29-29 deadlock with Green Bay.Also, Oakland’s Mike Nugent missed an extra point in the second quarter in what turned out to be a 20-19 loss to Denver.FINE COMING: Damontae Kazee of the Falcons got ejected for a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, as Newton was sliding in the open field.A fight ensued, and after the game, the Panthers remained understandably livid.“It was a malicious hit, intended to hurt” Newton, receiver Jarius Wright said.Newton: “This game isn’t fit for cheap shots like that, but at the end of the day you can’t blame him. He’s playing as hard as he can. I’m playing as hard as I can.”Kazee can expect to hear from the NFL soon. His preseason hit to Jaguars receiver Marquise Lee’s knees knocked Lee out for the season, but did not result in a penalty or fine.
