The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers kicked off the 2014 season on Sunday with quite a wild one. The Steelers of course won on a last-second field goal after coughing up a 24-point halftime lead.

But since then, the Browns have overhauled their front office and...
Browns coach Mike Pettine said recently that the team is planning to use a committee system at running back this season.

fresh start. Coming from the Eagles,

injured reserve, a move the Browns...
Browns halfback Dion Lewis is out for the season. SOURCE: Tony Grossi, ESPN ClevelandFantasy Spin:Lewis suffered a broken leg last weekend versus Detroit.
