The Cleveland Browns know that first place in the AFC North is at stake as they are currently tied with the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals at the top and the Browns are doing their part as they lead the Buffalo Bills at halftime, 17-10.
Browns’ quarterback Brian Hoyer left the game with a leg injury and is questionable to return, but the way things are looking for the Browns, they may want to keep him out.
Backup Browns’ quarterback Brandon Weeden came onto the field and was greeted by boos from the crowd, but hats off to Weeden for keeping his composure and allowing the Browns to stay in it after trailing 10-0. It could have easily been a turn of events where players on the Browns could check out and give up but they rally back with a rushing touchdown by Willis McGahee and a punt return for a touchdown by Travis Benjamin.
With this lead, I don’t think this is a situation where the Browns can let Weeden showcase himself and throw the ball all over the yard. He has to manage the game and feed the ball to McGahee while letting a stout Browns’ defense take care of Bills’ rookie quarterback EJ Manuel.
