Browns shaking off gut-wrenching loss

Browns first-year coach Pat Shurmur says he understands the frustration felt by Cleveland fans following another gut-wrenching loss. On Sunday, the Browns found a new way to lose as the reliable field goal unit botched the snap, causing Phil Dawson to miss a 22-yard kick with 2:13 remaining and giving St. Louis a 13-12 win.

Sunday’s five least valuable players, Week 10

Alex Mack, Center/Guard, Cleveland Browns. On extra point and field goal attempts, lines are packed really tightly together, so it's not uncommon for the leg of Alex Mack, who plays to the left of long snapper Ryan Pontbriand on the field goal unit, to be partially obscuring Pontbriand's five hole.
