The Browns are back to 2-2 in the standings thanks to two Brian Hoyer touchdown passes in the 4th quarter to Travis Benjamin, capping off a furious 25 point comeback to knock off Tennessee. Let’s take a look behind the box score of Sunday’s historic win. 25 – The largest deficit overcame by a road team in
Things were looking so good … until they weren’t. Here’s a look at the numbers that you won’t see in the box score from Week 3.
We’re riding out this win as long as possible.
The Cleveland Cavaliers got some good news and some bad news before this game started. The good news was that Kyrie Irving would be returning after missing the last couple games with a knee injury. The bad news was that Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller were both sick and would miss the game. Early on,
The Cleveland Cavaliers made their ESPN debut with Kyrie Irving tonight, and Kyrie did not fail to deliver a performance worthy of the event. The New Orleans Hornets (who I will refer to as Pelicans from here on out because I can’t wait for it to be official) aren’t a good basketball team, but for
Talk about a strange game. The Cleveland Cavaliers played the San Antonio Spurs about as tough as you could possibly hope, and they did it on a night in which Kyrie Irving arguably played the worst game of his career since his debut game against the Raptors last season. The Cavaliers came out strong and
Another frustrating defensive evening for the Cavaliers. After having their 3 game winning streak snapped Saturday night, the Cavaliers were hoping to hop back on the winning train facing an injury depleted Minnesota Timberwolves team. Instead, the Cavaliers were left scratching their heads, more questions than answers as to how to get stops on defense
The Cavaliers came into this game on their first winning streak of the season and things were starting to look up. To make matters even more optimistic for Cleveland, we found out prior to the game that not only would Kyrie Irving (who missed shootaround due to illness) play, but Andrew Bogut, Steph Curry, and
Boston came into this game hurting. Losers of 3 straight, the Celtics surely looked at this game in Cleveland as a prime opportunity to get things back on track. Kyrie Irving had other ideas. “Mr 4th Quarter” disguised himself as “Mr 1st Quarter” in this one as he came out looking to make a statement
With the news of Varjao’s surgery combined with injury absences for CJ Miles and Daniel Gibson, this looked like it might be a rough night for the Cavaliers. Instead, we got one of the most inspired efforts from the Cavaliers this season as they came away with a really nice win against Atlanta. Kyrie Irving

This game brought some big changes for the Cavaliers. First of all, Tristan Thompson was playing without his mask. This game also saw Shaun Livingston make his Wine and Gold debut. But the big change was Coach Scott’s decision to start CJ Miles and bring Dion Waiters off the bench. In the first half, the
Anderson Varejao missed this game due to a knee injury and without his services the Celtics were simply too much for the Cavaliers to contend with. This one looked like a blowout with the Celtics opening up a 20 point lead in the 3rd quarter. However, the Cavaliers went on a nice 20-2 run to
The Cavaliers welcomed Dion Waiters back to the lineup in this one, but it would make little difference as Cleveland once again lost to Cavalier Kryptonite, the Toronto Raptors. This one was close through 3 quarters, but the Raptors pulled away in the 4th quarter to snap their 11 game road losing streak. The Cavaliers
Unfortunately Kyrie Irving didn’t do so well on his test. CJ Miles came into this game picking up right where he left off. He scored 11 of the Cavaliers first 13 points and the Cavs bench played the best quarter of their season in the 2nd quarter. The Cavaliers were up 54-38 with about 4
What a night for Cleveland sports. First, Kyrie Irving came back for the Cavaliers. Then, while the game was going on, the Indians made what appears to be a stellar trade. And then, just for good measure, the Cavaliers beat the Lakers. It was evident from the beginning just how much Irving was missed. Kyrie
After holding a three point lead at half time, the Cavaliers fell behind shortly in the third quarter and could never quite catch up. Cleveland made a strong push in the fourth quarter, getting stop after stop on the defensive end, but continously came up empty on the offensive side of the ball. The Cavs were led by
Well, this was pretty much a standard Cavs vs Bulls game. That makes 10 straight losses to the Bulls and the Cavaliers were never truly in this game. Cleveland fell behind by 15 early in this one. They did make things interesting a bit midway through the 4th quarter, but the Bulls never really let
You knew this game would be tough to win, with the Cavaliers starting backcourt out with injuries and the Pistons playing good basketball as of late. For a while, that’s exactly what happened, with the Cavaliers falling behind by 20 points in the first half and trailing by 17 at the half. In the 4th
The Cavaliers were playing the 2nd night of a back to back and their 4th game in 5 days. And they played like it, too. Not a whole lot to say about this one. The Cavaliers, without guards Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson, were simply flat from start to finish. Lost in all the gloom
