BEREA, OHIO (AP) - Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron said Cleveland’s cornerbacks will no longer huddle with the defense, an adjustment following Cincinnati’s quick-snap touchdown in the season opener.

Jauron accepted share of the blame for Sunday’s blunder, when the Browns were slow reacting and the Bengals hurried to the line, snapped the ball and threw a game-winning touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of a 27-17 win. Jauron, who is in his 27th season as an NFL coach, said he had his head down and was looking at his call sheet when the Bengals snapped the ball.

Jauron called the gaffe “hugely diappointing to everybody.” He said the team will use hand signals going forward.
