A Healthy McCown

Browns’ town might not be thrilled about Manziel’s benching and the fact that McCown starting. However, don’t forget how good the journeyman was playing before he was sidelined by injury.

For the season, McCown has completed 165 completed passes on 254 attempts for 1,897 yards, 11 TDs and 4 INTs in seven games of work. Manziel has completed 76 completed passes on 128 attempts for 933 yards, 5 TDs and 2 INT in six games.

Generally, the Browns offense has done a better job of moving up and down the field and scoring when McCown is under center.

McCown doen’t have the potential that Manziel has to eventually become a franchise QB in the NFL, but so far, McCown is the better of the two signal callers. That is something to remember going into Monday night. While Manziel’s benching might hurt the Browns for the near future, it will probably help them out in their meeting with the Ravens.

The Browns should put up plenty of points with McCown taking snaps on Monday. If that becomes the case, it should be hard for the Ravens to keep up and that will vastly improve the Browns’ chances of winning Monday’s contest.
