Yes both men did better in their second game in the NFL. Brandon Weeden gets the gold star of showing the most improvement in the NFL and Trent Richardson gets into the end-zone not once but twice. In the end it looks great for the individuals stats, but both men remain win-less in the NFL. For Brandon Weeden he is the only rookie quarterback in the NFL that was taken in this years NFL draft that hasn’t put a game in the win column. The Browns as a team are win-less and now they have dropped a game in the AFC North a game they need to win if they are going to contend.
The hard facts are the Browns special teams weren’t very special as they saw Pac-man run back the Browns first punt of the game for 81 yards and a touchdown putting Weeden and Richardson down by 7 points. Brandon Weeden was playing from behind all game long with his Browns offense. We all know it is easier to lead than it is to come from behind to win in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns defense didn’t look like the same defense we saw in week one, Weeden felt as though he let down the Browns defense in week one, this week the Browns defense has to share the same feeling of letting down the Cleveland Offense.
The Cleveland Browns are the only team in the AFC North that have lost 2 games. The Browns take on the Buffalo Bills in their next game and the Bills may not be the push over people were thinking they were, they socred 35 points Sunday and showed they can rush the football something the Browns defense still has a hard time stopping.
