That's three in a row for the Cleveland Browns, as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 30-7, highlighted by rookie Travis Benjamin's 93-yard punt-return for a TD. The win makes it one more win than last season's total record. It also marks their longest winning streak since 2009. Cleveland QB Brandon Weeden went 17/30, 217 YDS, but without a TD pass, instead handing it over to RB Trent Richardson, who had two 1-yard TDs. The Chiefs, still emotionallty drained from the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide, fall to 2-11. "It is going to be with some guys the rest of their lives," QB Brady Quinn said. "But it was not a distraction because we live to play football. We just didn't play an all-around football game like we did last week." The 5-8 Browns have had a resurgence as of late, but second-year head coach Pat Shurmur's job still hangs in the balance. They do seem to gelling, which is a good thing for him and the team going forward. It's been a long year," LB D'Qwell Jackson said. "At first, it was rocky. We were in a lot of close ballgames and we weren't able to finish, and now we're starting to create something. We had some young guys at the beginning of the season that were a little immature, and they've grown up a little bit. "We have something going right now." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Pat Shurmur, game manager extraordinaire

Nothing irritate me more than poor game management. It’s inexcusable. Any 12 year old kid who plays Madden knows when to go for the 2-point conversion and how to use timeouts at the end of a game. A kid in his basement, chugging mountain dews, and stuffing his face with pizza doesn’t think twice before going for two when going up 15-10 in the 4th quarter against Philadelphia...

Reports continue to link Nick Saban to the Cleveland Browns

There’s probably no magic number of wins for Pat Shurmur’s Browns future

To put yesterday’s 23 point victory in perspective, last year the Browns won all four games by a total of 16 points. 1 In addition to that, the Browns put out a stat today that Rick also mentioned earlier about how many rookie starts the Browns have this season.

Rookies playing a huge role in Browns' streak

BEREA A big reason the Browns won their third game win in a row was due to the contributions of rookies. Pat Shurmur was asked if it was the confidence theyve gained or the opportunity to show their skill set. Its probably a combination of both, Shurmur said.
