After playing pretty well in games one and two of the NFL preseason, many were hoping for a strong showing in what is considered the dress rehearsal of preseason games. Instead, the Cleveland Browns decided to not score any touchdowns and only kick two field goals in a 27-6 loss at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts.
By the numbers this game was a nightmare. The Browns only managed 270 total yards of offense (211 yards passing, 59 yards rushing) and only picked up 13 first downs to the Colts’ 26. They didn’t score until 7:16 in the 3rd quarter, and only managed 104 total yards and four first downs in the 1st half of the game. However, this game wasn’t all that bad, as there were definitely a few things left to be desired.
Statistically Brandon Weeden didn’t have a good game, nobody can argue that. His line read 12-of-25 for 105 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions and a QB rating of 59.6. Stats aside, what this writer saw was a quarterback who ap...

The Browns have released wide receiver Jordan Norwood.
Norwood has had trouble with his hamstring for the last few weeks, limiting his opportunities on the field. The injury, combined with the number of slot receivers on the roster this season was too much for Norwood to overcome and stick with the team.
The Browns traded for Davone Bess during the draft to be their primary slot...
The Browns have cut their roster down to 86 players after releasing 4 players on Monday via the team's website. The team has 9 more decisions before the Tuesday deadline.
For the past few seasons the Cleveland Browns have used the excuse that the team is young. It didn’t take long for new rookie head coach Rob Chudzinski to catch on. After the beating his team took at the hands of Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts Saturday night, Chudzinski was quick to jump on the young team bandwagon. Nothing the Cleveland Browns did in the game looked good...
First round draft pick Barkevious Mingo had been limited in his activity since suffering a bruised lung in the second preseason game against the Lions.
At first, it appeared that Mingo wouldn’t miss much time at all, but as days and practices went by without Mingo being cleared to do any activity, speculation grew that the former LSU Tiger might miss more time as Terry Pluto wrote...

Browns running back Trent Richardson was 13 years old when he reportedly met former Ravens stud running back Jamal Lewis.

After the self-described slap in the face Brandon Weeden and the Browns offense took at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, Weeden described himself as a creature of habit. He is dying for the chance to play against the Chicago Bears 2nd and 3rd string defenders come Thursday night. Weeden must feel like tearing it up against the back ups will give him the boost he needs to start...
Cleveland Browns running back, Dion Lewis, was looking for a
fresh start. Coming from the Eagles,
Lewis knew he could make an impact and help the Browns’ running attack. Sadly for Lewis and sadly for the residents
of Browns Territory, this will not be the case.

injured reserve, a move the Browns...
The Browns placed running back Montario Hardesty (knee) on injured reserve for the season for the second time in four years and waived fullback Owen Marecic today in the first roster trim to 75 players.
The Browns were also awarded outside linebacker Paul Hazel from Jacksonville and punter Colton Schmidt from San Francisco.
In addition they waived linebacker Kendrick Adams offensive...
Every year, during the final weeks of August, grown men and women flock to the homes of their friends, colleagues, and family members (or nearby sports bars) to take part in perhaps the nerdiest ritual in all of sports fanhood: fantasy football drafting.
I admit, I am a huge fan of fantasy sports. It is the perfect way to enhance one’s knowledge of the players participating in...
Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is dealing with a groin injury and didn't practice on Tuesday.Fantasy Spin:The team doesn't think its anything serious. If Weeden can progress in his second year as a starter, Cameron could end up with decent fantasy value.

The Cleveland Browns have had their fair share of injuries this season, but none more disappointing than that of losing running back Dion Lewis. After a promising start to the preseason, Lewis suffered a season-ending fractured left fibula, which he recently had surgery to repair. The injury only added to the quickly depleting position, after Cleveland...
