Long Week To Prepare
The Browns have had a lot of time to reflect on their previous game against Cincinnati and prepare for Pittsburgh. One thing is for sure and that is the Browns are going to be coming back with a vengeance. It’s no surprise that everyone on this team wants to get a win on Sunday.
Whether it be for Browns coach Mike Pettine fighting for his job, Johnny Manziel fighting to become the Browns’ starter at QB, or the Browns fighting to stay relevant, the Browns will be doing everything they can do to win Sunday.

The goal in the NFL is to win and any win that occurs is great– especially when Cleveland can defeat a division rival in the process.
A week to prepare for Sunday’s contest will benefit the team greatly, especially for Manziel should he start. Manziel struggled reading coverages and making the right reads mid-play last week.
After hearing about the upcoming Steelers game and watching it on film over the last 10 days (maybe nine days if you count his day back at Texas A&M as an off day), I’m sure he will improve on making those easier reads this week.
If Manziel can improve in that aspect while still being able to use his athleticism in-game, then the Browns will be in great shape for Sunday’s contest in Pittsburgh.
