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.''
