And here come the Browns, who are also 3-8 and coming off a game in which they had eight takeaways and still had to fight to beat Pittsburgh 20-14 with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not playing because of a rib injury. Cleveland has lost 12 consecutive games on the road, with the streak starting last Oct. 16 in a 24-17 loss to the Raiders in Oakland.
