Bills 13, Browns 6: Weather not good; Browns’ play just plain bad

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The snow never came. Neither did a Browns touchdown. Or a Browns victory. The 2010 edition of the Browns is difficult to figure. Much like the mid-December weather on the edge of Lake Erie. Just when the Browns seemed to have momentum — they had won two straight and four of Read More…

Hillis’ day: Good, bad and ugly

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Peyton Hillis was in no mood to celebrate. He couldn’t even muster a smile. Hillis became just the ninth Brown to rush for 1,000 yards in a season Sunday on the first drive. He finished with 108 yards and a 5.1 average. All impressive statistics. But the Browns lost 13-6 to Read More…

Browns fall to Bills, 13-6

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Browns’ two-game winning streak is over. The Browns settled for field goals in the first half, didn’t score a touchdown all day and never got in a groove offensively. They also couldn’t stop Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick when necessary. Bills 13, Browns 6. The Bills took a seven-point lead with Read More…

Third-quarter update: Fumbling Browns still down by 4

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Browns entered the fourth quarter down 10-6. They should consider themselves lucky. The Browns fumbled three times in a span of six plays at the end of the third quarter, but recovered them all. Peyton Hillis had two of the fumbles (he lost one in the first half) and Joshua Read More…

Halftime update: Browns trail Bills 10-6

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn’t too bothered by the rain, leading Buffalo to a 10-6 lead over the Browns at halftime. Rian Lindell’s 30-yard field goal with 14 second left extended Buffalo’s lead to four points. Fitzpatrick led an impressive 89-yard drive to give the Bills a 7-3 lead. He converted Read More…

Browns up 3-0 after 1st quarter; RB Peyton Hillis over 1,000 yards

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Running back Peyton Hillis had an eventful first quarter this afternoon in Cleveland’s game against the Bills. The Browns led 3-0 after a quarter. Hillis surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the season with 56 yards on nine carries, was stuffed on third-and-goal at the 1 and fumbled trying to hurdle safety Read More…

Browns-Bills to play in rain; Colt McCoy is 3rd QB

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Don’t expect to see snow when you tune into the Browns-Bills game at 1 o’clock. Despite forecasts earlier in the week, the snowglobe conditions from the Cleveland-Buffalo game of 2007 won’t be re-created. It’s been raining/misting all morning in western New York, and it’s supposed to stay that way throughout the Read More…

Browns GM Heckert sees plenty of positives in debut season

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Tom Heckert isn’t used to losing, and he doesn’t like it. In his nine years in Philadelphia’s front office, the Eagles had just one losing season. They also went to a Super Bowl. The Browns are 5-7 in Heckert’s first year as general manager and would need a minor miracle to Read More…

Doing it all is not a problem for Browns tight end Benjamin Watson

BEREA – “You’re in.” When slot receiver Chansi Stuckey enters the game from the sideline, he occasionally gives that message to tight end Benjamin Watson. Stuckey’s looking for a laugh. Watson’s always in. First-and-10, second-and-2, third-and-18. The situation doesn’t matter. Watson is always in the huddle. On an offense that runs a variety of personnel Read More…

Browns QB Colt McCoy returns to practice, could dress Sunday

BEREA – Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy (high left ankle sprain) returned to practice Friday in a limited capacity, and coach Eric Mangini said there was a chance he could be the No. 3 quarterback Sunday in Buffalo. McCoy was inactive for the last two games after getting hurt Nov. 21 in a loss at Jacksonville. Read More…
