I think [this past Sunday] just shows me that I can play at this level. The Bengals have a good defense, they were a playoff team last year. It gives you that self confidence that you can make all of those throws, you can do things to put your team in position to score points. We scored more points in that game than we probably scored offensively as ones the entire preseason so confidence-wise it was good for me. Now, I just have to build off of it, be consistent and do it two weeks in a row. [...] There’s so much football to be played, but you don’t want to put yourself into a hole where you’re digging yourself out. Even though it isn’t a conference game, I think it’s still nice to get on the right track. You’ve got to kind of build some momentum before we go to Baltimore on a short week. I was talking to someone about it, you want to win them all, but I think playing right at the right time is what’s most important in this league. If you can get to the eighth or ninth week and you’re 6-2 or 5-3, you’re putting yourself into position. Then you start playing well, look at the Giants last year, they played right at that time and they ended up winning the Super Bowl. We’ve got to start winning games and that’s all there is to it and there’s no better week to start that than this week.

– Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, Wednesday, who bounced back from a poor Week 1 outing to complete 26-of-37 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
