Browns close in on first win of season


With new owner Jimmy Haslam expected to be approved by the league this week, the Browns are close to winning one last game for Randy Lerner.

After trailing 14-7 at halftime, the Browns had outscored the Bengals 27-3 in the second half, taking a 34-17 lead.

Fourteen points came via two consecutive plays from scrimmage — a short touchdown pass from Brandon Weeden to Benjamin Watson and a 19-yard interception return for a touchdown by Browns cornerback Sheldon Brown.

The Bengals have scored to cut the margin to 10, but they have less than six minutes to wipe out the rest of the deficit.

    It’s looking good today, Browns fans. I’m going to prematurely award you the win and crongatulate you on your first of the season. I’ve always liked the Browns, happy you pulled this one out.

    Good game Browns. I’ve always said, the Browns aren’t a terrible team as much as they typically are terrible at finishing games. If they could finish games, I’d put them right there with the Bengals. Obviously, you did finish this game so here’s to hoping you can continue.
