I'm starting to have a good bit of confidence for Sunday's game
 
The fact that the Browns have a awful defense. I think Ben and WIllie will be able to capatilize on that. The Seahawks put up 30 points on them, I think we can put up more. The Browns have given up the most total yards in the whole NFL and have the least sacks, defensively, in the NFL. That should give Ben a lot of time in the pocket and be able to throw to Ward, Holmes, Miller, Washington, and so on.

When I look at this game deeper, it sort of reminds of the Steelers/Bengals games. Bengals always had a great offense and a bad defense. The Browns have a very good offense and a awful defense. I think our D will be able to atleast contain the Browns offense. It might be a struggle but I think we'll be able to contain them. Our offense should be putting up some points though. Willie should easily have over 100.

Not only that but look at the combined record of the teams the Browns have beaten in this 3 game winning streak......4-20! Thats horrible and they barely beat the winless Dolphins and the winless Rams.

Not trying to downplay the Browns because I know they'll be in Pittsburgh ready to PLAY. Just saying that I'm feeling confident about this game.

I think this whole rave over the Browns is a little far fetched. They play no one with any stature, and when they do, they lose. Simple as that. I look for a repeat of the matchup earlier in the season, but with Harrison showing that him stomping those dirty Ravens wasnt a fluke. Pittsburgh I think also noticed on monday that they can do something, and do it well. BLITZ. They will be in the backfield all day, proving that great performances from the Browns offense were sparked from terribly poor performances from some of the worst defenses in the league. 34-13 Black and Gold with a three game lead.

It'd be a 3 game lead since we would have beaten the Browns twice

If Willie can get going on the ground we should be fine

These next few weeks will really tell us if our team has matured enough to contend in the playoffs. We've been inconsistent thus far, Id like to see us get a good streak of quality football

the mid way point of the season is a good time for a team to start to peak.

you have to be confident for this game.. we are playing at home where we won our first 4 games by 21+ pts each. more importantly we are playing the worst defense in the entire nfl while we field the absolute best.

The Browns have no answers for our offense, and they'll be forced to play from behind, making them one-dimensional. That will make them vulnerable to lots of sacks, hurries and turnovers from them on offense, too.

so far were dominating every division game. we are making big plays happen and causing turnovers and not turning over the ball. everyone that posted so far has covered about everything in a good quote. I am with the rest I have a very good feeling and feel the flash of the browns is nothing more then a fluke. we will role them just like we did in the first game.

Yeah, I was just looking over the Browns schedule and most of the teams they beat have been bad teams and even then they let those teams score on them pretty much at will. I mean, they let the Dolphins score 31 points on them, and St. Louis got 20 points off of them. These are both no-win teams. They lost to Oakland, who is just shy of terrible. Half of their wins have been by a margin of one score. I really can?t see them outplaying our defense enough put up the numbers they will need to beat us. And as weak as their defense is, I don?t see why Ben can?t have another 5 TD game. Hopefully though, we won?t let off the gas in the second half and let them attempt a comeback like they did with Seattle.

And let?s not forget Harrison. If he plays half as well as he did against the Ratbirds, this game could be decided pretty quickly.
