Browns Dump Bills On Thursday Night Football
(Cleveland, OH) -- T.J. Ward's 44-yard interception return for a touchdown clinched the Browns 37-24 win over the Bills at the "Dog Pound." Cleveland scored 20 unanswered points to get to 3-and-2 and move into sole possession of first place in the AFC North. Brandon Weeden had to replace Brian Hoyer in the first quarter and threw for 197 yards and connected with Josh Gordon for a TD. Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski says this is a great win for his team.
The seriousness of Hoyer's knee injury isn't yet known. Travis Benjamin had a 79-yard punt return for a score and broke the Browns punt return record with 179 yards. Bills quarterback EJ Manuel also left with a knee injury and didn't return. Jeff Tuel was 8-for-20 and tossed for 80 yards with a pick after entering the game. C.J. Spiller ran for 54-yard TD and Fred Jackson reached the endzone twice. Buffalo is 2-3.
Buccaneers Cut Josh Freeman
(Tampa, FL) -- Josh Freeman's time in Tampa is officially over. After trying to trade the recently-demoted quarterback, the Buccaneers have cut the former first-round pick. Tampa Bay's decision to part ways means the team will ultimately eat more than six-million-dollars of Freeman's remaining salary. The 0-4 Bucs have their bye this week.
Bears Host Saints
(Chicago, IL) -- The Chicago Bears welcome in the undefeated New Orleans Saints to Soldier Field Sunday afternoon. The Bears are coming off their first loss of the season, a 40-32 setback at the Detroit Lions. The Bears are 3-and-1 overall. New Orleans is 4-and-0 after smashing Miami on Monday.
Rams' Running Back Situation Unsettled
(Earth City, MO) -- The Rams have some questions to answer at running back when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Lead back Daryl Richardson tweeted that he isn't going to start. On Thursday coach Jeff Fisher said he has not decided who would start. Richardson, Isaiah Pead, Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy are in the mix to get snaps and carries.
