A real minor league barnburner with no historical significance whatsoever, except for yet another Browns regime change afterwards.
The season and Pat Shurmur's career as the Browns head coach ends in a dud. Let the offseason begin.
Why does every Browns season end with half the roster injured, a regime change on the way, and a game against Pittsburgh? It's the definition of insanity I tells ya.
I don't care and that's the best thing about it.
Signing a never-has-been/never-will-be QB to back up our practice squad QB who's getting the start for our injured first and second string QB: Just your typical Game #16 for the Browns.
The only chance the Browns have is if Pittsburgh has already started their offseason.
I think we are looking at a replay of 2008 with Thad Lewis playing the part of Bruce Gradkowski.
Hodges plants two punts inside the 5 and Dawson puts up the game winner as the Browns somehow pull one out.

All the air got let out last week. Win that and I could have seen the Browns winning out.
Peyton Manning at home against a beat-up secondary. It's going to a long day in the Mile High City.
Only two more weeks until we get to discuss another Browns front office change. The whip cream on that sundae will be four months of nonstop NFL draft talk. It's gonna be great!
Nick Swisher should suit up today and rush Peyton Manning the way he sprints around the bases after a HR. After all, for $54 mill, shouldn't you have to do more than hit .250 lifetime?
I get the shakes every time I see those ugly-ass uniforms (past or present) opposite the Brown and Orange, as I relive some of my most traumatic childhood memories.
I don't expect to win but we need to keep it respectable to get back some of the confidence that got kicked out of us last week.
The ghost of Christmas past haunts us. Manning with a late-game drive to push the contest into overtime. Broncos with a bullshit field goal to win it.

|No amount of ass-kissing will save you now, Pat.|
I constantly watch RG3 and mourn that the Browns couldn't pull off a trade for the magnificent QB. However, I truly don't know if his body will hold out longer than Brandon Weeden's. Oh well, RG3 or not, I am as excited for this Browns game more than I have been for a while.
A four-game winning streak, a chance for the playoffs, and it's 55 degrees on December 16. Is this bizarro world?
RGII may be out for the 'Skins as the Browns go for their 4th straight victory. This is the type of game the "old" Browns would lose, what with expectations high and a star player missing for the opposing team. Time to put a stranglehold on fan cynicism, Brownies!
This glass-half-empty Clevelander is drinking the Kool-Aid. I'd gladly lead the "Keep Tom Heckert" march in Berea. For God's sake, we finally have something here.
The winning streak continues. I would prefer to face RGIII, but I'll take the W over Kirk Cousins.
At least we're not talkin' draft position

Man. Kyrie Irving just can't catch a break. Bad choice of words, perhaps, because he will be wearing a mask tonight versus the Knicks because of a "small" fracture to his jaw. I am not sure if that feels less painful than a "big fracture" of your jaw. Looking into it.
I know football is a quite different sport, but the spectacular effort given by RG3 that seems to absolutely be leading to a shorter career for the undersized QB is suddenly manifesting itself (in my mind, at least) in the injuries that Irving keeps sustaining. Amazing players when they're healthy. But can they stay that way?

Sometimes crazy ex-girlfriends win the battle. I'm thinking the Chiefs will wake up with their pet bunny in the crock-pot.
Browns win an uneventful game, meaning they keep their helmets on and actually win the game.
Expecting the Browns to win has been an exceedingly rare happenstance these past 14 years or so. Today's tilt against the Chiefs is a game the Browns should win, and rather handily.
Thursday night, I dreamed KC routed us and I made out with Mary Kay Cabot in the press box at halftime. Half the dream comes true today.
If the Browns don't win today, then the progress made in the last two weeks is wasted. You have to beat teams that you're supposed to beat, especially at home.
Playoffs next year.
No pick this week

Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders (Week 13)
December 2, 2012
Because 31-13 is one of my favorite football scores and the Raiders suck. Hoping Weeden is healthy and can get the Browns on track.
Browns finally win one on the road in the black hole. does it even matter for Pat Shurmur's future? That's the question.
The Browns' road losing streak ends today with an ugly win against a putrid Oakland squad. Two victories in a row sends unbelieving Clevelanders into the streets, where they laugh through their tears as if they just watched a Robin Williams movie.
Northeast Ohio's premiere 'capper moves to 11-1 in this space.
This past week Jimmy Haslam said the Browns were moving in the right direction.
Translation? "I already got rid of Holmgren and we're already looking at possible head coaches."
No pick this week.
The Browns' new streak starts just in time for the Mayan calendar to end.
