Colts to go with Brissett again vs. Browns

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Cleveland Browns are trying to win a game on the road for the first time in nearly two years. The Indianapolis Colts are trying to staunch the losing until star quarterback Andrew Luck returns from January shoulder surgery. The Browns acquitted themselves well in the opener in a 21-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and then regressed last week, turning the ball over five times in a 24-10 loss to the Ravens.

Tomlin, Steelers keep guard up vs. winless Bears

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Pittsburgh Steelers will aim for their first 3-0 start since 2010 when they head west to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field. "We'll get prepared with an edge," Tomlin said this week. Tomlin's hard stance is no surprise to those who have watched him compile a 105-57 record in 10-plus seasons in Pittsburgh.

Joe Thomas somehow named every starting quarterback he has protected during his Cleveland Browns career

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Cleveland Browns have seen a lot of turnover at the quarterback position over the years, but for over a decade now one man has been there to protect whoever was lining up under center: left tackle Joe Thomas. A pro-bowler every year of his career since being drafted by the Browns with the third overall pick in 2007, Thomas has been one of the few constants in a franchise that can appear to outside observers to be in constant upheaval. Thomas' consistency is something unheard of in the NFL — he hasn't missed a game, or even a single play for the entirety of his 10-year career — and on Sunday he passed the milestone of playing 10,000 consecutive snaps for the Browns.

Another NFL receiver is publicly asking defenders to stop hitting so low

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Terrelle Pryor is the latest NFL wide receiver to publicly ask defensive backs to aim a bit higher with their tackles. After the Redskins played the Rams on Sunday, Pryor took to Twitter and asked safety Cody Davis to try and keep away from his knees in future matchups. Pryor posted his request with a video of a play from Sunday's game in which Davis went low to bring down the receiver.

Start of football season brings heightened attention to 10TV-DirecTV blackout – Columbus

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The last time the Dispatch Broadcast Group and DirecTV came to a stalemate over airing WBNS 10TV was in 2014. What that has in common with this year's blackout is the month – September, which marks the beginning of football season. The blackout started Sept. 6. The Cleveland Browns home opener on CBS was Sept. 10. Channel 10 is the local CBS affiliate. So it's no surprise that football is being used as a bargaining chip as the two sides try to work out an agreement. The consumer group American Televison Alliance says the timing is a "sad, but predictable trend." Or, in other words, it's "deal leverage to extort higher fees from consumers." "Each year, football fans are used as pawns by big broadcasters

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Any football fans who were hoping to see the Baltimore Ravens beat the Cleveland Browns and to find out what variant of the ACTN3 gene they have went home half-disappointed this past Sunday. The Ravens won 24-10 but “rescheduled” a promotional event known as ‘DNA Day’ in which a stadium full of fans would have received free genetic-testing kits on their way to their seats. After inquiries from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid as well as the Maryland Department of Health, the event—originally set for this past Sunday—has been postponed, though no new date has been announced.

Corey Coleman placed on IR after breaking his hand again

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Cleveland Browns receiver Corey Coleman suffered a broken right hand against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 and will miss significant time, Hue Jackson announced on Monday. Coleman injured the same hand last year, and missed six games without having surgery. On Tuesday, the Browns placed Coleman on injured reserve, who can return after eight weeks: What happened? With 13:15 left in the Browns-Ravens matchup, Coleman left the field after colliding with cornerback Marlon Humphrey. Both men were trying to make a play on the ball, but the pass fell incomplete.
