· Cleveland did not commit a turnover for the second consecutive game. The last time the Browns went back-to-back games without turning the ball over was against the N.Y. Giants on October 13, 2008 and the following week at Washington on October 19.

· Linebacker David Bowens split a sack with linebacker Kamerion Wimbley. Bowens has been in on a sack in three consecutive games for the third time in his career. Bowens has 4.0 sacks on the season and 38.0 for his career. The half-sack marked sack number 25.5 of Wimbley’s career and increased his season total to a team-leading 5.5. Wimbley also forced his first fumble of the season and seventh of his career.

    So, Robiskie and Veikune sit, as does Lawson and Francies? Your second rounders — who should be on the field contributing, especially on a team that has as many needs and play as poorly as this one does — can’t make it to the field? A second round receiver who cannot even catch a bus to Cincy? This as much as anything else tells me about this coach: can’t assess talent, or can’t coach talent. Combine this with the QB fiasco (although none on the roster are his choices, save Ratliff). How do you sit half your early draft? No wonder the receivers and the QB look like they are playing a different game. With the shuttling in of free agent cast-offs, no less, from week to week, no one’s timing could be very good. What a nightmare. 200 yards rushing? 200 yards? Let me repeat that: 200 yards rushing. What a joke — on us all.
