Terps succumb to Almighty Jameis

Crabcakes and losing in Tallahassee -- that's what Maryland does.


C.J. Brown out for remainder of FSU game

Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown will miss the remainder of the game with an injury, ESPN reported.

Brown was hurt on what appeared to be an illegal hit from Jacobbi McDaniel, seen here.


Brown remained on the ground for several minutes before walking off the field on his own power. He completed six of 14 first-half passes for 82 yards, and ran three times for three yards. Caleb Rowe came in for him and completed two of three passes for 28 yards.

He is apparently receiving X-rays, but the details of the injury are not yet known.


Terps trail 21-0 at half

Everything that could possibly go wrong for Maryland did in the second quarter, as poor tackling, even poorer coverage, and an injury to quarterback C.J. Brown leaves Maryland with a 21-0 deficit heading into the half.

Maryland started the second quarter with the ball in Seminole territory. After a two-yard run from Albert Reid, the Terps attempted some trickeration, with a reverse toss to Stefon Diggs turning into a pass from Diggs to Deon Long that was broken up in the end zone. Brad Craddock missed a 51-yard field goal off the left upright, keeping it at 7-0 Florida State.

The Terps forced a three-and-out on Florida State's next drive, culminating in an Andre Monroe sack of Jameis Winston. On the next drive, Stefon Diggs made an incredible play, catching the ball in front of Lamarcus Joyner near midfield for the first down. The drive ended on an incomplete pass to Diggs, forcing another punt from Renfro.

Florida State's offense returned in force on the next drive, as poor tackling and even poorer secondary coverage led to a Seminole touchdown. Devonta Freeman culminated the nine-play, 80-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown run, making it 14-0 Florida State.

On the next drive, Maryland's offensive problems became even more serious when C.J. Brown took a huge hit from Jacobbi McDaniel on what appeared to be an illegal hit. Caleb Rowe came in and completed three passes in a row for two first downs, with one being called back on a Nigel King holding call. The drive ended in a Maryland punt.

The Seminoles would score once more before the half ended, as Winston found Kelvin Benjamin in the end zone to make it 21-0.


C.J. Brown injured against Florida State

Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown was injured on what appeared to be an illegal hit by Florida State defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. Late in the second quarter, Brown made a throw towards the right side and received a big blow from McDaniel, who hit the quarterback squarely in the chest, leading with his helmet.

Brown has suffered multiple injuries in his Maryland career and has missed two full seasons thanks to shoulder and leg injuries. Brown was able to walk off the field on his own power after spending several minutes down on the ground. Caleb Rowe is Brown's replacement, and will enter the game immediately.

Here was the hit in question:

Terps trail 7-0 after one

The Terrapins trail 7-0 on the road to Florida State after one quarter, but it could have been much worse. The Terrapin offense has struggled while Jameis Winston has looked pretty fantastic en route to the 7-0 Seminole lead.

Maryland let the opening kick go into the end zone for a touchback, and started their first drive with a ten-yard pass to Brandon Ross. After a five-yard run by Stefon Diggs, C.J. Brown took the zone-read himself and lost a yard. Brown found Levern Jacobs over the middle for a short gain, but it was not enough as the Terps were forced to punt.

Florida State started their drive with a screen pass for a first down as well, as Jameis Winston found Kenny Shaw on the left side for a nice gain. After two more completed passes for Winston, Devonta Freeman broke a 21-yard run down the left side. Maryland was able to force a third-and-nine after stopping Freeman and taking down Winston, but the quarterback was able to find tight end Nick O'Leary for ten yards and a big first down. Winston then completed a short pass to Freeman that brought them to the goal line, and Karlos Williams dove in for the score to make it 7-0 Seminoles.

Maryland's next drive began with a Will Likely kick return that brought the Terps near their own 35-yard-line. After a dropped pass by Stefon Diggs, Nigel King made his return with a first-down catch near midfield. The drive stalled again on a third down tipped pass, and Maryland was forced to punt it away.

The Terrapin defense was able to force a punt on Florida State's next drive, giving Maryland the ball near their own ten-yard line. Maryland, however, went three-and-out including a pass that Deon Long dropped behind him, and they punted the ball out past midfield.

FSU's next drive was a three-and-out as well, with the help of two bad snaps. On the first play of the Terps' ensuing drive, C.J. Brown found Deon Long for a 39-yard reception, and Maryland will have the ball in Florida State territory at the start of the second.
