Does race matter as Peyton Hillis nears rushing milestone?

Peyton Hillis is a virtual lock to reach 1,000 yards rushing Sunday in Buffalo. He needs just 38 and will face the Bills’ last-ranked run defense.

Browns notes: No mistaking Jake’s solid game

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Jake Delhomme said he’s always mindful of not throwing the backbreaking interception. In Sunday’s 13-10 win over the Dolphins, it looked that way.
