Leadoff with Lee 10.6.14

Wow! The Browns overcame a 25 point deficit to record a 29-28 victory against the Tennessee Titans. The Browns now hold the record for the biggest comeback in NFL history by a road team. And of course, the biggest comeback in Browns history. Browns running back Ben Tate had a career-high rushing day going for 123 yards. I feel no matter who is running the ball for the Browns, the offensive line is the most improved personal group from last year.

-Peyton Manning threw for his 500th career touchdown yesterday versus the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the game with 479 yards and 4 touchdowns.

-Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday had a career-high and set a NCAA Division I record throwing for 734 yards in addition to 6 touchdowns in a 60-59 loss to Cal.

-Five of the top eight in the Associated Press poll lost in the same week for the first time in history. #2 Oregon lost to Arizona 31-24, #3 Alabama lost to #11 Mississippi 23-17, #4 Oklahoma lost to #25 Texas Christian University 37-3,3 #6 Texas A&M lost to #12 Mississippi State 48-31 and #8 UCLA lost to Utah 30-28.

-The American League must be full of brooms. As the Kansas City Royals swept the Los Angeles Angels in three games in the best of five series, the Baltimore Orioles also swept the Detroit Tigers in their 5 game series. The Orioles and Royals will get some well deserved rest as the series doesn't start until Friday October 10.

-Leadoff with Lee will be returning on a regular basis starting today. I'm just getting adjusted to covering the national sports scene and figuring out what's hot and what's not. @neveRWilliams and myself will be providing Cavs coverage for this season, so expect previews and recaps of the Cavs this season. Leadoff with Lee every morning to get your early morning sports fix!

-I think this is the way most Browns fans were dancing after we beat the Tennessee Titans yesterday. Check out this video:
