Seattle's Red Bryant, who got ejected late in the game after a costly headbutt of Browns tight end Alex Smith, accused Smith of cheapshotting him during the game. "He was talking the whole game,'' said Bryant. "He was taking cheapshots at me. That's what guys do when they can't block you. He did a great job of getting in my head. I should have been smarter than that.'' Instead, Bryan'ts 13-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct cost his team a chance to get the ball back with about a minute left in the game and a chance to win at the end. Colt McCoy had been sacked for a 2-yard loss on third down back to the Seahawks 25 with a little more than a minute remaining, and Phil Dawson would've attempted a 42-yard field goal for a 9-3 lead --assuming Bryant didn't block his third one of the game. The Seahawks would've gotten the ball back with enough time to try to win the game, although they had no timeouts left. "I feel like it was a huge play at the end of the game,'' said Bryant. "I'm supposed to be a leader. I know I'm better than that. I lost my composure and pushed the guy and got myself ejected from the game. You never know what could've happened if we got the ball back on offense. It was just a dumb move on my part. I take full responsibility for it.'' Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer

The Seattle Seahawks announced that they have activated tight end Cameron Morrah from the physically unable to perform list. A 2009 seventh-round pick out of Cal, Morrah caught nine passes for 117 yards in 15 games in 2010, but opened this season on the PUP list due to a toe injury. With Zach Miller ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, Morrah is expected...
The Browns aren’t the only team without their starting tailback in Cleveland on Sunday. Marshawn Lynch will not play for the Seahawks after suffering a lower back injury during pregame warmups. The injury came during Lynch’s routine pregame activities, leaving the Seahawks with no way to replace him in the lineup before the start of…

Defense never yields in holding the inept Seahawks to 137 yards of offense.
Colt McCoy hasn't looked great running Pat Shurmur's offense this season, but on Sunday he won a game running Eric Mangini's.
Plain Dealer's Cleveland Browns beat writers Tony Grossi and Mary Kay Cabot deliver the news from the Browns 6 - 3 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Thank James Harrison. Seems like an odd thing to say on a Cleveland-based sports blog, but it is true. The NFL was on the path to over-regulating tackling and hitting anyway, but James Harrison’s plays against the Browns (including a near decapitation of Josh Cribbs) are pretty much the reason we find ourselves watching the NFL as it is today. Even Browns fans seemed to be...
The Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks will square off this Sunday at Cleveland Browns Stadium In a game that promises to be a low-scoring and hard-fought affair between two teams who badly need a win.
The offense didn't show up on Sunday, but the defense did again and again.
Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and tight end Benjamin Watson have sustained head injuries and will not return to Cleveland's game against Seattle.
An illegal block -- on a questionable call -- wiped out Leon
Washington's 81-yard punt return for a touchdown Sunday, and the
Seahawks couldn't muster much offense in a sloppy 6-3 loss to the
Cleveland Browns, whose only points came on a pair of long field
goals by Phil Dawson.
