Jason Campbell wins AFC offensive player of week

Jason Campbell proved his toughness and his composure last week, and he was rewarded for it.

The Browns quarterback was named AFC offensive player of the week, after coming back from a rib injury to snap an 11-game losing streak against the Ravens.

Campbell was decisive and calm, throwing three touchdown passes against the league’s best red zone defense.

He’s the third quarterback the Browns have started this season, and he has proven at different points in his career to be a good-enough quarterback.

And at the moment, that’s good enough for the 4-5 Browns.

  1. A Browns QB as AFC offensive player of the week? I could get used to this.

    It’s also little known fact that Weeden had won this every week he started a game this year, except “offensive” had a different meaning.

  2. Campbell can lead this team…no doubt.

    Sweep the Bengals and the Steelers…you’re probably looking at the Cleveland Browns in the playoffs.

    Cleveland Browns.

    IN. THE. PLAYOFFS.

  3. “Good enough” is such an improvement over what we’ve seen as Browns fans since the days of Bernie!!! Frustrating to think where our record might be had Hoyer or Campbell started from the beginning this season.

  4. Wow. I can’t believe it. A Browns QB winning player of the week! Great job, Campbell. I hope we never see Weeden with a ball in his hand every again (pause). Campbell is getting his chance, and it shows that a competent QB does well in this offense, as both he and Hoyer have. I look forward to seeing Campbell beat Cincy.

  5. I’m glad its going well for Campbell. He does have some talent. On a Raiders team with not any big name WR’s he played very well during his time with Oakland. The problem was no rushing attack (most years) and the defense being so poor.

    That injury suffered by Campbell changed everything (Oakland then traded a ton of picks for Palmer), if Campbell stayed healthy that year things would have been so so different.

    If you check out Campbells stats with the Skins overall he wasnt that bad on a weak team. Hope he continues playing well for the Browns.

  6. Campbell has been chomping at the bit since getting replaced by Carson after going down with a broken bone in Oakland. Good for him! Gibbs saw something in this kid and I, for some reason, want to see Campbell succeed, too.

  7. Good for Campbell and the Browns, this Steeler fan would much rather see them win the division than the Bengals or Ravens.

    I thought the award should have gone to the Steelers’ secondary for all the points they allowed last sunday.

    Good for Campbell but how does Brady not get it this week? Had over 400 yards and more TDs with his team doubling the Browns points.

    —-

    True, but who thought the Browns would actually win against the Ravens? And then to not just win, but do it with a bit of style and through an injury?

    I’d like to see Brady get it too, but I understand why they chose Campbell. I also never understood why he hasn’t been given more of a chance to win the starting job on some teams. Everywhere he’s played, he’s done good. Not great or outstanding, but above average. I think he’s definitely underrated for his ability.

  9. As bad as we are, Ben should of won this award for staying alive after the amount of hits he took against NE and passing for over 400 yards.

  10. Congrats to Jason and the Browns for realizing his talent… Hated to see him ousted from Oakland the way he was….

    Classy guy and a great competitor with lots of heart… good to see him finally getting his chance and making the most of it!!

    Big Ben? 400 yrds? Running plays 20, passing plays 48…Jon Kitna can throw for 400 yrds if he throws it 50 times a game…

  13. Did I miss something? Was this the biggest win in Browns’ history? I thought this was still just the regular season.

    Congratulations on snapping an 11-game losing streak to the Ravens, I guess.

    I would tell Browns fans to act like they’ve been there before, but they haven’t.

  14. “Congratulations” to Jason Campbell. It’s a shame that the coaching staff did not see his potential from the getgo. Playing Weeden ahead of both Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell is an unexplainable abomination. The Browns could very well be in first place contention if the Browns had not insisted on continuing the Weeden fantasy.

  15. sweep the Bengals??? LMFAO! Not happening in Cincy…But glad Browns fans are excited….Lets see if Campbell has as much time to get the ball off as he did in Cleveland…..Dont think because Geno is on IR that we are sinking ship…more playmakers on defense besides Atkins

  16. Even Jason Campbell is better than Brandon Weeden. What a complete waste of a first round pick by the Browns.

  17. You Browns fans leave the most hilarious posts. Good for you guys for sticking w/ your team through quite a drought (understatement).

    As a Seahawks fan I was going to say that I felt your pain through the 90s and some of the 2000s, but after thinking about it…I’m not sure any fans from another NFL team have felt your pain. You guys are due for some good things. Best of luck to you all!

  18. .

    The real Browns season will be the off season. They have 25 million in cap space plus 2 picks in each of Rounds 1, 3, and 4. The new management has the opportunity to get the team competitive for a decade.

    Jason Campbell: 23-35, 65.7% 262yds, 3TD

    Tom Brady: 23-33 69.7% 432yds 4TD
    ==================================

    Campbell was injured early in the game. He played with bruised ribs and came out with a huge divisional W.

    Campbell gets my vote.

  20. I HATE Tom Brady

    But he completely deserves this award and was robbed here

    This was Brady’s coming out party for this season and was one of his best performances I’ve ever seen, regardless of how old and slow the Steelers D was

    That was a STATEMENT game

  21. Man, Campbell was HORRIBLE on the Bears squad. Guess the man’s found a place to shine. Congrats to the Browns & Campbell.

    Is NFL Network replaying this game this week?

  22. Ok I m a Browns fan. Been all my life 52 years. What gets me is when the comments reflect that WE BROANS FANS think we are going to the Superbowl because we win a game or have an AFC player of the week or something like that.

    If you really know us Browns fans we all pretty much say we will be lucky to be 8-8 or 7-9 this year.

    That said We Fans here are excited as we are seeing a team come together.

    Nice game Jason and that’s all.

  23. What a pleasant surprise! Too bad I could not watch the game. I had to watch the Steeler-Patriot game where I live.
