9. player. 53. <p>Marcel Reece’s 55-yard catch-and-run was everything that is wrong with the Browns’ tackling these days. Another eyesore on defense was the goose egg the front seven posted in terms of sacks, while the Raiders totaled five sacks on Josh McCown.</p> <p>It wouldn’t be a Browns’ season without the underpinnings of a quarterback competition characterized by weekly second-guessing and gut-checking on the part of the Browns’ coaching staff. Until McCown pieces together consecutive wins, there will be screeches for Johnny Football in the football-tortured city of Cleveland.</p> <p>What’s encouraging for Browns fans, however, is that the AFC North competition isn’t as insurmountable as recent years with the Ravens gasping for air at 0-3, the Steelers being Roethlisberger-less for over a month and the Bengals destined to slump after another fast start.</p>. NFC North. 1-2. Cleveland Browns

Next: 8. Indianapolis Colts
