The Cleveland Browns improved to 3-1, with a 14-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium Oct. 3.

If you like your stock reports loaded with defense, this one’s for you, because for the second straight week in a row, defense carried the day for the Cleveland Browns.

With Sunday’s 14-7 win, in addition to the Browns 26-6 last win against the Bears, Cleveland’s defense has held the opposition to single-digit points in back-to-back games for the first time 1995!

It’s all good for the defensive unit, coached by Joe Woods. Good thing coach Kevin Stefanski didn’t listed to the fans and fire him after Week 2.

Alas, not all is well with this team, as the offense sputtered for the second-straight week in a row. By offense, I’m talking Baker Mayfield. The quarterback missed throws he should’ve made in what was his worst game of the season.

Some might point to the 26 the Browns scored agains the Bears last week, and to them, I’d say Cleveland should’ve scored 40.

Alas, that’s a conversation for a different post–and believe me, you’ll be able to read it soon.

There was good. There was bad, but most importantly, the Browns improved to 3-1 and are tied for first in the AFC North.

Here’s five Browns who saw their socks rise following Cleveland victory against the Vikings.
