Browns win on missed field goal try by Panthers’ Kasay

Jake Delhomme beats former team (file photo)

The Cleveland Browns over the past several years have seem several games slip through their hands late in the fourth quarter and almost let another one slip by the way side when they got a break.

Carolina Panthers 41-year-old placekicker John Kasay, who had made 3 of 4 attempts during the game from 40-plus yards, missed a game-winning attempt from 42 yards as time ran out on Sunday. The kick had the distance but drifted off and hit the left upright and Cleveland won 24-23 in a game that they dominated from the outset until the second half.

The Browns built an early 21-7 lead on three Peyton Hillis touchdown runs. But they allowed the 1-10 Panthers to get back in the game by making mistakes and turning the ball over.

It was a very emotional day for Jake Delhomme who beat his former team by completing 24 of 35 for 245 yards and two interceptions.

His replacement in Carolina, rookie Jimmy Clausen struggled again, 16 of 28 for 195 yards and 1 touchdown.

Peyton Hillis, the Browns new, star, running back rushed 26 times for 131 yards and added another 63 yards on 6 receptions.

The humbled Hillis, couldn’t believe it after the game when reporters told him that his name is in the team’s record books with other great running backs of years past, Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly. Hillis’ 11 rushing TD’s are the most of a Browns running back since 1968 which was accomplished by Kelly.

Roethlisberger returns as Steelers steamroll Browns, 28-10; Colt McCoy shines for Browns

When the 2010 NFL training camps opened, most NFL experts around the country felt the Steelers would be in trouble having to use backup quarterbacks Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich during Ben Roethlisberger’s four-game suspension.

Well, the Steelers are going to overcome any adversity and they did. Even without their suspended QB Ben Roethlisberger, for violating the NFL’S personal conduct policy after a Georgia college student accused him of sexually assaulting her in a bar back in March, the team went 3-1.

Ben Roethlisberger returned Sunday for a home game against the injury-riddled Cleveland Browns and looked like he never missed a game or practice. He threw 3 touchdown passes and with the help of the defense, pushed the Steelers in control of the AFC North Division.

The Steelers are 4-1 and back in first place in the division as they will embark on a tough three-game road road trip to Miami, New Orleans and Cincinnati. Those are three cities where it is tough to win and the Steelers say they’re ready for the challenge.

The bright spot for the Cleveland Browns is that rookie QB Colt McCoy played as if he was an NFL veteran against one of the top 5 defenses in the league. Starting due to ankle injuries to veterans Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme, the former Texas Longhorns star showed why he was a Heisman candidate the past two years, going 23 of 33 passing for 281 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

Browns fall to Falcons, 20-10; lose two QB’s in process

The Cleveland Browns lost another close game and two quarterbacks in the process.

The Browns are probably glad to see Atlanta Falcons pass rusher John Abraham leave Cleveland, Ohio.

Abraham and the Falcons defense left one Browns running back leaving the game on Sunday with a bum leg and left their Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Joe Thomas wondering if he can ever block again.

Abraham just couldn’t be blocked away from quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme and running back Peyton Hillis.

All told, Abraham had a solid game with two sacks, three tackles for a loss and three quarterback hurries.

The Browns running game was stopped in its tracks. Hillis gained 28 yards on 10 carries and backup Jerome Harrison had 6 yards on 6 carries.

With Wallace and Delhomme hurting, head coach Eric Mangini is reluctant to start rookie quarterback Colt McCoy against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense this Sunday.

Browns drop to 0-2 as Chiefs rally to win game, 16-14

The game-by-game watch has started again for Cleveland coach Eric Mangini. The Browns let another winnable game get away.

The Browns dropped to 0-2 for the third straight season and fourth time in five years Sunday, losing to a much-improved Kansas City Chiefs team, 16-14.  That’s the same team that the Browns beat  last December 41-34.

The upcoming weeks will tell if Mangini will be able to survive under the Mike Holmgren regime. The Browns will be facing Baltimore, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and New Orleans.

Brandon Flowers returned an interception for a touchdown, Ryan Succop kicked three field goals and Thomas Jones ran for a late first down on a fourth-down gamble by coach Todd Haley as the Chiefs improved their record to 2-0 for the first time since 2005.

Highlights for the Browns were Josh Cribbs’ 65-yard touchdown reception from QB Seneca Wallace.

Wallace started in place of Jake Delhomme, who injured his right ankle at Tampa Bay last weekend. Wallace was 16 of 31 passing for 229 yards, but he had the pass interception that was run back by Brandon Flowers for a touchdown.

Winslow gets revenge on Browns as Tampa Bay wins, 17-14

Kellen Winslow, Jr. spent 5 controversial seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was supposed to be the second coming of Ozzie Newsome of the Browns glory days and a mirror image of his Hall of Fame dad, Kellen Winslow, Sr. of the San Diego Chargers. But he was either injured or not playing up to standards.

On Sunday, in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, Winslow set the tone earlier by running out the tunnel during pregame introductions and waving a Tampa Bay flag in front of the Cleveland bench. The crowd of 47,211 roared with approval as the Buccaneers went on to defeat Cleveland, 17-14.

But the real hero for the Buccaneers was their quarterback Josh Freeman, who returned from a three-week layoff due to a broken thumb and threw for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Winslow had four catches for 32 yards.

Early in the game, Cleveland moved the ball at will and built a 14-3 lead, but struggled thereafter. They had three costly turnovers which helped Tampa Bay win the game.

Jake Delhomme went 20 of 37 for 227 yards and two interceptions in his debut for Cleveland, who have not won an opening game since 2004. They have a record of 1-11 in opening games since the team returned as a new franchise in 1999.

The Browns received a 41-yard touchdown reception from Mohammed Massaquoi and a 10-yard TD run from Peyton Hills which put them up 14-3.
