Browns hanging around, thanks to Eagles’ lackluster play

Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden’s thrown three picks, and rookie running back Trent Richardson’s averaging fewer than three yards per carry.

And amazingly, the Browns are right in this thing.

The Eagles’ wounds are self-inflicted, but the Browns defense has impressed.

After a Joe Haden interception (the Eagles’ fourth turnover of the day), Cleveland drove inside the Eagles 5-yard line, but had to settle for a field goal after Weeden gave a mighty effort to throw his fourth pick of the day.

It’s 10-9 Eagles with most of the fourth quarter remaining, and the game of football being set back decades with each passing moment.
