This Given Sunday:
No matter how many good young assets the Browns put together, if they are going to be a competitive in the coming years, they are going to have to be able to get past divisional opponents. That means playing the Bengals, Steelers and Ravens six times every year.
After starting the 0-5, including giving the Giants a scare in week five, Cleveland has won two of their past three games and narrowly missed beating the Colts a few weeks ago that would have put their current streak at three. Brandon Weeden is still fresh in the league, but he has begun to develop a solid chemistry with his offensive line and receivers that has surprised some around the league.
The Browns took a risk in the supplemental draft when they spent a second round pick on Josh Gordon, a receiver with immense potential but sporadic success at the college level. So far, the investment has paid off. Gordon is a big play wideout who will not win you any PPR leagues, but he will get down the field...
BEST OF MAXIM
Browns fans are trying to convince me that I was wrong to say they were going to win 0-2 games. The fact is, this is not a good team. Maybe they win 5 games, it doesn't matter. They don't have enough talent on this roster to make a playoff run anytime in the future.

We definitely feel like [we've closed the gap within the AFC North]. We feel like we were in the division [games], but we were just a couple plays off. Now that we’ve beat Cincinnati and we’re coming off of this last week’s win, we just feel like there’s no reason why we can’t keep these wins coming. They’re a beatable team, they’re really talented though not to...
15 Years ago, the dilapidated Cleveland Stadium -- former home of the Browns and Indians -- was demolished. Though Cleveland was without a football team for a bit, it's since been replaced by Progressive Field and Cleveland Browns Stadium -- shiny new-age facilities featuring all the amenities you'd expect.
After the demolition, pieces of the stadium were...
Being a woman of the generation when girls were only permitted to play touch football if their male friends invited them to be on the team, I've never played tackle football. I can only imagine the pain the players must feel after a 60-minute game of hits that are rougher than some car accidents.
As a nurse, I know all that hitting produces intense inflammation, and with it...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns' defense got a whole lot bigger, and a whole lot healthier.
Massive tackle Phil Taylor was activated Friday from the physically-unable-to-perform list and will play Sunday against Baltimore.
It will be Taylor's season debut after missing Cleveland's first eight games after undergoing surgery on a torn chest muscle he hurt lifting weights...
Hurricane Sandy may have crippled the Eastern Seaboard, but it looks like Cleveland had to deal with an odd situation caused by the "superstorm".
Sandy caused bits and pieces of the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium to be thrown out of Lake Erie and wash ashore in nearby Bratenahl, Ohio.
Why was the wreckage of the stadium in Lake Erie you ask? Simple. When the former...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Brandon Weeden had his trigger finger ready.
While relaxing at home Tuesday night, Cleveland's rookie quarterback was reviewing the Sept. 27 game against Baltimore on his iPad when he came to that fateful moment in the third quarter.
With the Browns trailing just 16-10 and driving for a potential go-ahead touchdown, Weeden hung a third-down pass toward the...
Showcasing personal style on the gridiron is not an option for NFL players. Even a slight alteration to their team uniform, such as a cleat color change, can result in a football fashion-related fine. Off-the-field, players have free reign when it comes to their sartorial decisions. In the NFL, the competition extends off-the-field as guys vie for best-dressed honors. Cleveland...
Not in a long time can I remember this much talk between teams heading into a game as there has been leading up to this Sunday’s match-up between the Browns and Ravens. Trent Richardson is going to exchange jerseys with Ray Rice. The Browns think they’re a different team than the one that lost on Thursday night. Trent Richardson is the hardest player to tackle in the league according...
