Joe Haden says he feels the Browns are closing the gap on the other three teams in the division—whom all made the playoffs in 2011.
“We definitely feel like that,” Haden said. “We feel like we were in the division (games), but we were just a couple plays off. Now, that we’ve beat Cincinnati and we’re coming off of this last week’s win, we just feel like there’s no reason why we can’t keep these wins coming.”
Haden doesn’t feel there is any team the Browns cannot compete with.
“(The Ravens are) a beatable team,” he said. “They’re really talented though, not to put anything past them, but everybody in the division is beatable. We just feel like our team is on the verge of being at the top.”
Haden, who didn’t play in the first meeting with the Ravens, feels the Browns are better than their record.
“The record is completely different than how we feel as a team,” Haden said. “We know that our record could be so much better. A couple plays here, a couple plays there, but we’re starting to make those. We feel like we’re starting to make those and we’re starting to get over the hump. We’re starting to finally be a team that can go out and win consecutive games. Why not win three games in a row, four games in a row, just get on spurts and keep winning.”
