Default Cleveland Browns have 7 positive thoughts heading into Pittsburgh


Cleveland Browns have 7 positive thoughts heading into Pittsburgh

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Something positive to keep Colt McCoy in a good frame of mind before he's fed to the wolves in Pittsburgh ...

The one statistic that has kept the Browns in every game: Third in the NFL in red zone defense. They've yielded only four TDs in opponents' 14 trips inside the 20-yard line.

The Browns are still the only team not to allow a touchdown on the ground. (OK, no cracks about the routine long TD passes behind the secondary.)

The Browns haven't won in Pittsburgh since 2003 -- Tim Couch's last golden moment in a Browns uniform. (He won two more starts, but that was his last impressive game.) The good news is that none of the quarterbacks who have started for them in Pittsburgh since then will play Sunday. They were: Jeff Garcia (2004), Trent Dilfer (2005), Derek Anderson (2006, '07, '09), and Bruce Gradkowski (2008).

Linebacker Marcus Benard has more sacks (3.5) than Pittsburgh's James Harrison (3.0), a former NFL defensive player of the year.

Defensive end Kenyon Coleman's three fumble recoveries lead the league.

The Browns have allowed only seven sacks in five games -- tied for seventh-fewest in the NFL.

Josh Cribbs has three kickoffs returned for a TD against Pittsburgh. That matches the most ever by a player against a single opponent.

And there you have it. Seven reasons for McCoy to feel good about his first NFL start Sunday in Heinz Field.
