browns CLEVELAND, Ohio – Just three weeks ago, the Browns looked like they were heading for another last place finish in the AFC North. They were 0-2, the locker room was in shock after the team traded RB Trent Richardson and QB Brandon Weeden was wearing a brace on his sprained right thumb. How quickly things have changed. Thanks to a three-game winning streak, including last night's victory over Buffalo, the Browns are in first place in the AFC North. They are 3-2 on the season and brimming with confidence. This was their first comeback of eight points or more in 25 games. It's the first time the Browns have been over .500 since 2007. The only bad news to come from Thursday's win was the injury to QB Brian Hoyer, who will miss the rest of the season due to a Torn ACL.
