When the Browns have the ball: The offense doesn't have a playmaker, and RB Peyton Hillis has missed half the season with injuries. Yet he still leads the team with 321 yards rushing. Without a running game and no reliable receiving threats, QB Colt McCoy has still passed for 2,524 yards and 14 touchdowns, but has taken a pounding behind an offensive line that is weak on the right side.
