WOW!!!! The Browns DESTROYS the Patriots

8 Nov

The ManGenius took his team into a game where they had to face the NFL’s best in the New England Patriots. Cleveland, who started a rookie QB, came into the game with a 2-5 record. No one expected the Browns would beat the Pats. Yet we all knew the game would be close. Well all the “experts” were wrong. The game ended with the score of 34-14. It was a “shellacking”, to steal a phrase from President Obama.

Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy went 14 of 19 for 174 yards and 1 rushing touchdown. His QB rating on the day was 101.6 with 0 turnovers. On the other hand, the biggest reason for the Browns success has to be attributed to their running game. As a team, they rushed the ball 44 times for 230 yards and 4 touchdowns. Payton Hillis had 29 of those carries totaling 184 yards and 2 TD’s.

I would have to say that this game was no fluke. The Browns came to play. The Pats looked battered, bruised, and just plain beat throughout the day. The physical nature of the Browns took it to the Patriots. Belichick was disappointed in his team’s performance. He said, “We’re a better team than we showed today, but we weren’t today”

Head coach Eric Mangini walked to midfield drenched in 41 degree temperatures with Gatorade to shake his mentor Bill Belichick hand at the end of the game. Of course it’s well documented that their relationship grew harsh over the years. However, at least today the pair managed to show good sportsmanship

Is there reason for concern for the Pats? Or is there reason for optimism for the Browns?
