Next week: Vikings vs. Cleveland
- September 15, 2013 - 11:50 PM
NEXT OPPONENT: CLEVELAND (0-2)
The enternally rebuilding Browns have a new coach in former Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, but have lost to Miami and Baltimore.
BROWNS WEEK 2: Baltimore 14, Cleveland 6
The host Ravens sacked Brandon Weeden five times, finally driving him out of the game because of a thumb injury in the fourth quarter. The Browns (0-2) didn’t score after halftime and gained only 85 yards over the final 30 minutes. Jason Campbell replaced Weeden.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Trent Richardson, running back
Richardson, the second-year standout from Alabama, has the tools be one of the NFL’s better running backs, but the nondescript Browns offense is not exactly conducive to big numbers for running backs.
The Vikings were dominated by the Lions, then were competitive with the Bears. The home opener should be good for what ails them. Outlook: Horns up.
