Cleveland Browns – 27, Cincinnati Bengals – 34What do you know, Brandon Weeden (328 total yards, 2 TDs) actually showed there’s hope yet for the Browns offense, getting his first 300 yard game of the year and keeping the Browns close throughout.  Of course, maybe this is an indictment of the Bengals defense, so don’t go overboard in picking Weeden off your free agent scrap pile; but at least this shows Cleveland shouldn’t be left for dead in terms of fantasy production.Andy Dalton (322 total yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT) had to take to the air in this one in order to keep the Bengals out in front of the Browns.  If the Bengals defense isn’t able to get some stops, Dalton might end up with top 12 fantasy stats when it’s all said and done.  Good for fantasy owners that scooped Dalton up as a backup QB, bad for the Bengals in general.Even though Weeden had a big game, it would still be hard to not take the numbers of receivers like Mohamed Massaquoi (5-90) and Greg Little (5-57, 1 TD) with a gr...

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Hero and Zero of the Game

In a game that was supposed to be one of the more boring games in the NFL this week the clash of Ohio turned out to be a high scoring barn burner.  Both teams wanted to come out and show that last weeks performances were just anomalies and they could really play. In a game with many heroes and no zeros I thought we would do an ode to Hockey giving out the three stars of the game...

The Cleveland Browns: Ten observations from the Browns vs Bengals game

  Brandon Weeden played like a 28 year old 1st round draft pick, and that’s a compliment. He broke rookie QB passing records, and that list includes Bernie Kosar, Brian Sipe, Otto Graham and Eric Zeier to bring the list and the accomplishment back to reality. I was one of the biggest screamers that if he did not improve he would have to get yanked by week 6.  After a 26-37...
