Break up the Browns!

Craig Robertson AP

After 11 straight losses and an 0-5 start to the 2012 season, the Browns have gotten a victory in the Battle of Ohio.

The 34-24 win came on the 29th birthday of rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden.  It also came a day before the start of ownership meetings at which Jimmy Haslam widely is expected to be approved as the next owner of the team.

Weeden threw 29 passes on his 29th birthday, completing 17 for a pair of touchdowns and an interception.  He also got 56 yards rushing from Montario Hardesty, and only 37 from rookie Trent Richardson.

The loss drops the Bengals to 3-3, and it’s their second straight loss in games that, on paper, they should have won.  Now, on paper, they’re two games behind the 5-1 Ravens, making the AFC wild-card race wide open.

And the Browns aren’t dead yet.  With no potential wild-card team in the AFC currently above .500, there’s plenty of time to get hot and, in turn, save some jobs.

    Yeah, I agree with txtuff. Bad as the Browns are, at least they’ve been playing teams close. The Chiefs get blown out every week. They’re clearly worse.

    Actually, their remaining games are all EXTREMELY WINNABLE!

    I feel bad for the Browns and their fans. They’re ranked dead last in most power polls week after week, they were 0-5, and everyone is down Weedens throat, because he’s “old”.

    Look at the teams that they have played. Every team that they have played has a .500 record or better, and they have been in all of their games. They have one of the hardest schedules, while playing with a ton of rookies and second year players. I think they are actually building a decent squad there. Kansas City is by far, worse than Cleveland.
