Battered Browns Team Searching For First Win Against Luckless Colts


Kizer will have a healthy Kenny Britt to overthrow as well as Rishard Higgins, who caught seven passes for 95 yards last week. It's clear that Brissett has command of the offense and he showed a nice touch on his passes while finishing 17-of-24 for 259 yards and a touchdown. The Browns and then Baltimore Colts met in the NFL Championship game twice with each team winning once. For much of the contest, the Indianapolis defense stymied Arizona with four sacks and the first career interception by rookie Malik Hooker.

The Colts did enough in the first half to keep the Browns at arm's length. Jacoby Brissett will get his second start of the year in his third week with the team. Receivers T. Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief have been unable to catch long distance balls and reach the endzone.

The Browns are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 versus the AFC and 1-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record. Cleveland played its AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers tough in Week 1. But he'll try to forget the debacle he had in Week 2 against the Ravens, where he kept turning the ball over and struggled through migraine headaches all afternoon.

Outside linebacker Jamie Collins on Friday was ruled out for the game, while defensive end Myles Garrett has been labeled as doubtful.

His ability to improvise and use his feet was on display early in the game. That's not such a surprise for Indy, which built its offense around Andrew Luck, who is still out recuperating from his shoulder surgery. That would seem to be a big, juicy smack on the lips from the NFL's schedule maker to the Browns - were the Browns not winless themselves.

A five-year National Football League veteran, Collins has amassed 371 tackles with 12.5 sacks, 16 passes defensed, five interceptions, 12 forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries throughout his career with the New England Patriots (2013-16) and the Browns (2016-17). Whichever team can run it will take pressure off the inexperienced quarterbacks. Eastern Time on Sunday.

Higgins is a name that was on absolutely nobody's radar on fantasy Draft Day.

-In Week Three victories each of the last two seasons, the Colts have walked a very fine line in narrowly avoiding an 0-3 start. If such an opportunity presents itself again, will the Colts be able to make the plays to slam the door shut? Each phase of the game was at fault for the Colts last week, including five penalties in the game's final quarter.
