Cody Kessler was mocked for pulling a Dan Orlovsky and running out of the back of the end zone without realizing it, but it turns out the man has a pretty good excuse for doing so.
Kessler was 2-of-2 for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Cleveland Browns’ 17-11 loss to the Packers on Friday night. Though the former USC QB produced the team’s only touchdown, he did have the embarrassing moment that resulted in a safety in the fourth quarter.

You definitely want to see your quarterback show more awareness than that, but the extra lines certainly can be confusing.
