CLEVELAND — Joe Haden and his fellow Browns defensive backs said throughout the offseason they belonged in the same category as their Seattle Seahawks counterparts, who are considered the best in the league.

Elyria High graduate Chase Farris, rest of offensive line step up their game, help get Ohio State offense rolling again

COLUMBUS — Ohio State’s offensive line did not perform well against Northern Illinois and coach Urban Meyer made sure the unit got the message during practice.
