The case for the Browns to just go for two

The NFL changed the extra point, pushing the kick back to the 15-yard line, turning it into a 33-yard field goal. The two-point conversion will remain from the two-yard line. It has me thinking about what the Browns should do after scoring touchdowns. There will be obvious debates back and forth about statistics and there will be definitive statements about what a team “has...

The Browns don’t want the cameras to hinder the...

NFL Playoff Drought: Will a stout offensive line lead to a Cleveland Browns playoff appearance?

The Cleveland Browns have gone fifteen years without a consistent answer at the quarterback position. This year may be no different, but one thing is for sure. Whoever plays quarterback for the Browns this season should have plenty of time to throw.
