Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden ended his team’s hopes of a fourth-quarter comeback with an ugly interception that Weeden himself described as “boneheaded.” But Weeden says he’s ready to move on.

Weeden told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that far from dwelling on the interception against the Lions, in which he backhanded the ball into the arms of Detroit’s DeAndre Levy, he is moving on and focusing on Sunday’s game against the Packers.

“It’s behind me. I didn’t lose any sleep over it. It stung at the time,” Weeden said.

For Browns fans, the news that Weeden didn’t lose any sleep over his interception won’t necessarily be welcome. Some fans would like to hear that Weeden is flogging himself for that throw. But as long as Weeden remains the Browns’ starter, the team is better off if he can keep looking ahead, and put that interception as far behind him as possible.
