When the Browns suit up tonight in Cincinnati to face the Bengals, they’ll be without the services of six starters, four of whom suffered concussions in last Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Among those in the league’s concussion protocol are two starting defensive backs, Joe Haden and Donte Whitner. A third DB, Jordan Poyer,
The Bengals have a 7-0 record. The Browns have Johnny Manziel under center. How will the quarterback fare on national television?
“How do I properly enjoy a Cleveland Browns game?” and, “Is it always this awful?” We answer each of those questions in kind with, “You don’t — you merely survive,” and, “Yes, yes it is.”
The Browns will face a big division matchup without two of the best weapons on offense. Tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Andrew Hawkins will be out tonight versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The game will be even tougher then expected because of these two inactive players. The Browns must rely on their running game
Ah, the NFL injury report. The game within the game. Ahead of the Cleveland Browns’ big match-up with the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night, it appears that the most notable Bengals player to be injured this year — all-world wide receiver A.J. Green and his turf toe — is no longer injured enough to be mentioned on

The Browns and Bengals will be back at it this Sunday, this time in Cleveland. Feels like a long time ago already. Joe Haden’s back. D’Qwell Jackson is practicing today. We’ll see about Ahtyba Rubin, but go ahead and call your collective shot!
Unintended double negatives aside, the Cincinnati Bengals LB Rey Maualuga is not concerned about facing Trent Richardson this Sunday when the Cleveland Browns and Bengals square off in Cincinnati. According to ESPN’s AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley, the Bengals LB wasn’t too shy about making his unimpressed opinions of the Browns’ rookie RB known: Middle
While certainly far from perfect, (A.J. Green can attest) the Browns defense is pretty good. In total defense Cleveland is sixth in yards. They are sixth in passing yards allowed per game. They are 29th in rushing yards allowed per game, which stinks. The Browns also don’t take the ball away enough to be considered
The Cleveland Browns carried a ten point lead into halftime, but couldn’t make it stand up. The Bengals capitalized on some big plays to tie it at 20 before taking the lead for good with under a minute to go in the game, 23-20. It was a crushing defeat for the Browns, but they have
Mike Holmgren broke his silence today as he spoke to Mitch in the Morning on KJR 950 in Seattle. Here’s what he said… Mitch: How long you going to do this? In 10 years are you going to be the President of the Cleveland Browns? Holmgren: Well, you know it’s hard to tell for sure.
Bengals rookie receiver A.J. Green got his first touchdown today to give the Bengals a 20-17 lead. It couldn’t have been a more embarrassing play for the Browns. The Browns’ defense was still getting set and ready to line up with Joe Haden inside near the hashes as Green was lined up outside. Bruce Gradkowski
The new version of the Cleveland Browns was off to a very scary start. A first quarter with seven penalties for 48 yards will do that. The Bengals took an early lead and built it to 13-0 before the Browns finally started to play. It probably isn’t coincidence that the Browns’ offense finally started to
If there is an NFL season next year, we already know who the Browns will play, even if we don’t know the order. In 2010 the Browns got the whole AFC East, the whole NFC South, the worst team from the AFC South, the worst from the AFC West and their annual divisional opponents. The
As you know from yesterday, I will not be discussing Mangini’s future for another two games. That doesn’t mean I won’t talk about the season that is still going on. And just to clear a couple things up because some people took umbrage with my Mangini Moratorium. Let me just explain why it doesn’t make
It is game time. The Battle for Ohio commences yet again. The weather should be cold and clear with temperatures in the 20s. Colt McCoy is back from injury and many of you will finally be excited about a Browns game for the first time since he has been out. Before the game starts, be
When and Where: Sunday December 19th, 2010 – 1:00 PM – Paul Brown Stadium – Cincinnati, OH Overview: I thought maybe we would do something different this week now that the Browns are down to playing divisional opponents for the second time.

To derive happiness from the shortfalls of others is really very unbecoming in life. Then again, the yin and yang are important because without ups, there could be no downs and without unhappiness there could be no such thing as happiness. You know; elementary philosophy and all that. As the Browns head into
