Brian Hoyer threw 3 interceptions – 2 on back-to-back possessions in the fourth quarter – yet manged enough gumption to rattle off 4 straight completions in rapid fire fashion over the final 44 seconds to set up Cundiff’s game winner.
Linebacker Karlos Dansby sustained a knee injury in the second quarter of a 23-7 loss to the Houston Texans and did not return. He will undergo an MRI on Monday.
If there’s one NFL player who can keep a coaching staff awake at night it’s Watt, the Texans’ 6-foot-5, 290-pound wrecking ball who never stops moving. In nine games this season, Watt has amassed a career’s worth of stats for an ordinary player.
One of the NFL’s surprise teams through 8 games will play their lone regularly scheduled prime time game of the season Thursday night. But with the league’s flex scheduling head coach Mike Pettine hopes that it won’t be the last – even if it means shuffling the team’s regular weekly routine to prepare.
To the Cleveland Browns 5-3 never looked or felt so good. To fans they might as well be 3-5.
The Cleveland Browns made some serious mistakes last week and ended up giving the Jacksonville Jaguars their first win. With a healthy roster, they don’t plan on doing the same thing for the Oakland Raiders this week.
Hoyer was less than thrilled with a speculation from earlier this week that he would not be interested in re-upping with the Browns should Johnny Manziel remain.
After losing to the Browns for only the second time in 20 games and 6th time since 1999, it is somewhat understandable that they don’t seem to know how to react after the Browns cruised their way to a 31-10 win – the largest margin of victory over the Steelers since 1989.
The largest margin of victory in the series since 1989 for the Browns was overshadowed by the loss of center Alex Mack for the season to a broken left leg.
The Brown’s offensive linemen don’t wear dorky glasses taped in the middle or pocket protectors. They do protect the pocket, though.
