Browns Hang with Giants; Fall 27-13 to Drop to 0-12 in 2016

New York Giants v Cleveland Browns

Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes to Odell Beckham Jr., Jason Pierre-Paul returned a fumble for a TD and the Giants extended their winning streak to six games, holding off Cleveland 27-13 on Sunday to keep the Browns winless.

Manning had three TD passes as the Giants (8-3) won their sixth straight. They don’t overwhelm anyone, but the Giants do just enough to win and are in position to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

Manning threw a 32-yard TD pass to Beckham in the second quarter and added a 4-yarder to the star wide receiver with 5:10 left to finally put away the Browns (0-12).

Cleveland has lost 15 in a row since last season. It is 3-30 since ending the 2014 season with five consecutive losses.

Browns QB’s Sacked Eight Times; Fall to 0-11 After Losing to Steelers 24-9

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cleveland Browns

A short bus ride into Ohio put Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers back in the fast lane.

The playoffs remain a possible destination.

Le’Veon Bell scored on a 1-yard touchdown run — long after time expired in the first half — and Pittsburgh’s defense recorded eight sacks as the Steelers snapped a four-game losing streak, 24-9 Sunday over the winless Cleveland Browns.

The Steelers (5-5) scored eight points with zeroes showing on the clock before halftime after they were awarded two extra plays because of defensive penalties against the Browns (0-11), who also lost rookie quarterback Cody Kessler with a concussion.

Pittsburgh’s win, coupled with Baltimore’s loss to Dallas, pushed the Steelers back into a tie for first place in the AFC North with the Ravens (5-5).

Jackson Says Kessler to Remain as Browns Starting QB Despite Benching

Cody Kessler

Browns coach Hue Jackson has no regrets about replacing Cody Kessler with Josh McCown in the third quarter of Thursday’s 28-7 loss to the Ravens, and declared Kessler the starter for the next game against the Steelers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reports. He also insisted he wasn’t playing musical chairs with his QBs, something he vowed Monday not to do.

“I made the switch at quarterback because I felt we needed a spark,” said Hue Jackson. “I didn’t think we were doing some things even in the first half I thought we could do. Nothing against Cody. It’s tough when you’re a young player and you come in, you play a week before and you’ve got to play on a Thursday.”

Despite McCown turning the ball over three times and going three-and-out on his other two possessions, Jackson stressed “I don’t regret it at all.”

The Browns are now in serious jeopardy of becoming the first team since the Lions in 2008 to go 0-16.

Ask what happens now at quarterback, Jackson shot back, “what do you mean what do I do now? Cody’s still the quarterback. I took Cody out of the game because I wanted a spark.

“A young player playing a couple days and all of the sudden it was a little bit different and difficult and so I wanted to try to the veteran and that’s what I did. There’s nothing more to it than that. I’m still going to find out more about Cody Kessler as we move forward. That’s not going to change.”

Browns Can’t Stop Green; Fall to Dalton and the Bengals 31-17

Cleveland Browns v Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green juggled oranges on a postgame show after a win earlier this season, showing off for the cameras. His latest sleight-of-hand got a touchdown and turned a game.

And maybe the Bengals’ season, too.

Green’s one-handed catch in the middle of an end zone scrum highlighted Cincinnati’s day full of big plays, and the Bengals pulled away to another lopsided victory over their intrastate rival, beating the winless Cleveland Browns 31-17 on Sunday.

Green’s 48-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the first half helped the Bengals (3-4) regain their footing in the injury-depleted AFC North.

“We needed it in a big way,” said Brandon LaFell, who caught a 44-yard touchdown pass.
