3-12. Cleveland Browns. 15. player. 53. <p>Give the Browns some credit for keeping it close against a very good Chiefs team in Week 16. If Johnny Manziel had managed to complete more than 13 of his 32 passing attempts and avoided an interception to Marcus Peters, then maybe the Browns would have emerged victorious. As it turned out, this was arguably Johnny Football’s worst passing outing of the season. However, Manziel paced the Browns with 108 rushing yards, including a 34-yard scamper.</p> <p>Rookie linebacker Nate Orchard was the bright spot on defense, recording a sack and an interception of Alex Smith. It has been a frustrating season in Cleveland, but there is a strong group of young talent on this team. Orchard is certainly a member of that group.</p> <p>You can bet that the Browns would like nothing more than to spoil the playoff hopes of divisional rival Pittsburgh in Week 17. A loss, however, would give the Browns their worst record since they finished 2-14 in 1999, their first season back in the NFL.</p>. NFC North
