Well Hoyermania and the Cleveland Browns are about to hit primetime this Thursday against EJ Manuel and the Bills. Bills are coming off a nice home win against the Ravens where Flacco threw five picks against them and that was against a beaten up secondary without McKelvin, Gilmore or Williams. WTF Flacco. Browns are coming off a home win against the Bengals where their D completely shut down the Bungals offense. Will be interesting to see what Horton dials up against a decent O-Line in Buffalo with his front 7 and his rotations and blitzes. If Hoyer can be smart with the ball again and not make many mistakes and a couple long drives then the Browns should ultimately move to 3-2.
Injury Report of Monday:
Did not participate in practice: Outside linebacker Quentin Groves (high-ankle sprain), outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard (sprained left knee) and defensive end Billy Winn (strained quadriceps). Limited participation: Kicker Billy Cundiff (strained right quadriceps), defensive end John Hughes (knee) and guard Shawn Lauvao (high-ankle sprain). Full participation: Guard Oniel Cousins (chest), wide receiver Josh Gordon (forearm), fullback Chris Ogbonnaya (thigh) and quarterback Brandon Weeden (sprained right thumb).
Sounds like Spiller and Jackson are both going to be able to go but both will be on a limited basis. Groves and Sheard will be out once again so will expect to see Mingo and Krugs play every snap like they did Sunday. Ultimately I think this game will come down to whoever doesn't turn the ball over as much.Bills
Did not participate in practice: Cornerbacks Ron Brooks (foot) and Stephon Gilmore (wrist) and running back C.J. Spiller (ankle). Limited participation: Safety Jairus Byrd (foot), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (hand), kicker Dustin Hopkins (right groin), running back Fred Jackson (knee), wide receiver Steve Johnson (hamstring), cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring), guard Kraig Urbik (knee) and cornerback Aaron Williams (back).
20-10 Browns over Bills.
