Well, it was a thoroughly depressing week of football for the Cleveland Browns, and it was exasperated by expectations after Browns fans tasted victory for the first time. It was a disappointment as Browns fans collectively predicted a 27-21 victory for the good guys. As it turned out it was 17-13 and a bit of an ugh-fest. Here are all your predictions.
The offensive line didn’t kill in the running game, but they kept Weeden clean. He got hit six times, but no sacks.
The Browns defense got three sacks. Good prediction. I would say though it didn’t feel like a very good game in terms of QB pressure. The Browns had to blitz in order to get pressure, and they didn’t seem to get it all that often.
No interceptions this week. Probably had something to do with the relative lack of pressure.
Only two when Browns fans clearly expected three. Although, if Josh Gordon catches that one ball…
Good prediction again. And yet Browns fans predicted a seven point win. How’d they lose this one again?
The Browns gave up 148, but the Colts were persistent. 37 rushes including three by Andrew Luck.
Anyone guess only 55? Seven people. Nice game plan. 41 passes compared to 17 rushes.
264 and another good Browns fan prediction.
A clean sheet for Weeden, although one of his rockets easily could have been picked off.
Only 186, but as I said before, the Colts were persistent with the running game even with their number one running back out.
It was competitive until the fourth quarter.
And that’s all she wrote. Very depressing and upsetting day even at 10 PM.
