You read it right. This is NOT the Same Old Browns. This is a new team and new attitude as the Browns decimate the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10 in a game that was never really close after the second quarter.
It appeared the Steelers just couldn't get it going on offense with the Browns defense finally stepping up amid injuries to Phil Taylor and, during the game, to his replacement Armonty Bryant. Even without them along with an inactive Ahtyba Rubin, the Browns were able to keep everything in front of them with Buster Skrine and Joe Haden having their best games of the year. In fact, it may have been the defenses best all around game this year.
Hoyer, Tate, Cameron and Crowell were the offensive stars of the game. Even though Hoyer only went 8-for-17, he did throw 217 yards and a touchdown with a 93.6 QBR according to ESPN.com. Tate ran for 78 yards and 2 TD's, Crowell 77 yards and a TD and Cameron 3 catches for 102 yards and a touchdown.
Next up for the Browns: in Jacksonville against a very bad Jaguars team. The Browns, however, should not take them lightly. And I don't anticipate they will.
