Is it time to start worrying about Browns defense?

2013_10_browns_lions_wrapperThrough the first six games of the season, the Cleveland Browns defense has been one of the team’s bright spots.

The team is seventh overall in the NFL, giving up just a shade over 300 yards a game, is giving up a decent 20.8 points per game, and after so many years of not being able to stop the run has finally been solid against the rush, giving up just under 100 yards per game and 3.5 yards per carry.

But we can’t help but wonder if it is time to start worrying a little bit about the defense.

We tackle that subject, as well as Jordan Cameron’s production, the on-going thrill ride that is Brandon Weeden, and the Browns complete inability to run the ball as we take a last look at Week 6 at The Cleveland Fan.

Browns vs. Lions – Week 6

2013_10_browns_lions_previewAfter a 10-day layoff, the first place Cleveland Browns return to action on Sunday as they host the Detroit Lions.

The game also marks the return of Brandon Weeden as the Browns starting quarterback, with Weeden looking for his first win as a starter since Week 14 of last season.

The Browns are looking to close out a stretch of three consecutive home games with their fourth consecutive victory to maintain a share of first place in the AFC North.

The Browns have not won four games in a row since the 2009 season, and have not won three consecutive home games since 2007.

In a season with so much unpredictability, what would be more unpredictable than the Browns at 4-2?

We take a look at what the Browns have to do to make that a reality in our game preview at The Cleveland Fan.
