The Cleveland Browns that have lost more games since coming back into the NFL are gone. The news comes of their disappearance comes from 2 of the team's defensive leaders.
Both D'Qwell Jackson and Phil Taylor made statements, the days of jokes about Cleveland being the mistake on the lake are coming to an end. This is a new Cleveland Browns team and they are going to be a winning team.
The news comes at a great time, both men know how big the game against the Bengals is, and they plan on making an impression on the rest of the NFL with a win to sweep the Bengals for the first time since 1995.
Jackson has been with the Browns since 2006 and he knows the difference between a losing Browns football team and the 2013 version of the Cleveland Browns.
Taylor has been on the team for only a couple of years, yet he can see a huge difference too. The Browns defense is a big reason the team is competing this season.
They held the Cincinnati Bengals to only 2 field goals in the team's first meeting this season and both Jackson and Taylor think the Browns defense are going to be able to repeat their performance in-game 2.
The Browns are starting to show the confidence needed to win football games. No longer is this team worried about playing team's in the AFC North.
Both men see the Cleveland Browns as serious contenders in their division and a win over the Bengals in the second match up is going to make the statement that winning football is back in Cleveland.
I for one will be glad to see it. Go Browns......
