Browns Snap 10-Game Losing Streak, Derek Anderson Has Epic Game

The Browns beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday to a score of 6-3, good for the Browns’ first win of this season.  Running back Jamal Lewis essentially was the offense, rushing for 117 yards on"We actually won that game, right? Okay, just making sure." (Mark Duncan/Associated Press) 31 carries.  Quarterback Derek Anderson, on the other hand, had a much more epic game.  He went 2/17 for 23 yards with an interception.  For the entire game.  Let that sink in for a moment and try to wrap your mind around how the Browns actually won that game.  You’d have better luck figuring out quantum physics.

Now, I understand there were nine dropped passes by receivers in the game, but this is one of the most jaw-dropping stats I’ve ever seen.  However, that makes it all the more fitting for this team.  The defense and special teams – including a plethora of mistakes on the behalf of the Bills – were the reasons for the win.  Buffalo fans have to be sick right now.

Most Browns fans at this point will say “a win is a win.”  Most of the time I would agree, but this game was almost too ugly to even consider this a step in the right direction.  I suppose getting a win in the first game of the post-Braylon Edwards era was important and, hey, those 0-16 discussions can be laid to rest!  A devotion to the running game was good to see and it might help the Browns compete with the Steelers, but completing 11% of your passes shouldn’t beat anyone.  How this happened to the Bills is…just…mystifing.

How ’bout them Brownies!  Reaching exciting new levels of ineptitude every single year!

    Eric Mangini seems like the perfect fit for the Clowns. Complete lack of offensive imagination, and the leadership skills of a turtle. This seems to be his team strategy, we will trade away all of our talent and any possible hope of drafting talent so we can load our roster with average and below average football players and secure our future of dwelling in the bottom of the NFL basement.

    phil you forgot the most important thing he looks for is being book smart we all know how that wins nothing in the NFL but not that idiot. you also spelled his name wrong its mangina

  • john

    has anybody noticed brady has more passing yards than da in the same amount of playing time and 2 less int which is a given because nobody throws more int than the worthless da

  • gobucks1

    Quinn gets benched after 2 incompletions in the first half, DA will get to keep the job after only 2 completions for an entire game.

    Mangini is a turd!
    DA is a turd!
    Fire them both and promote Ryan and make quinn the starter again.
