The joy Cleveland Browns fans feel over the team's 7-4 record is tempered by the alarm of the Browns' injury epidemic.

Free safety Tashaun Gipson is the latest casualty. He suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee on Sunday, according to the Plain Dealer.

Gipson was hurt when he collided with teammate Joe Haden as they were defending a pass intended for Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones.

Gipson had been enjoying the best season of his career, as he leads the NFL with six interceptions.

Coach MIke Pettine said "we just don't know" whether to put Gipson on the injured list, since there is a chance he could return in time for the playoffs.

Cleveland Browns Vs. Houston Texans: Preview and Prediction

By Jeff D. Gorman

Beating the Houston Texans (4-5) at home will not be an easy feat for YOUR first-place Cleveland Browns (applause).

The Browns have better overall talent, but Houston boasts two of the best individual players in football: running back Arian Foster and defensive lineman J.J. Watt.

Two factors play into the Browns' favor. First of all, Foster is coming off a groin injury, so he may not be as effective as he usually. Secondly, Texans' quarterback Ryan Mallett will be making his first NFL start.

The Browns need to jump out to an early lead. They can't let the Texans hang around at the end of the game, or Watt will pull off a big defensive play to turn things Houston's way.

Cleveland also needs to concentrate on shutting down Foster (if he plays) and dare the Texans to beat them with the inexperienced, rocket-armed Mallett.

Prediction: Cleveland 23, Houston 16.

Cleveland Browns Celebration: What Went Right in the 24-3 Win Over Cincinnati

The Cleveland Browns found their running game and defensive intensity at the perfect time in a 24-3 win at Cincinnati last night.

Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell, and Terrence West each ran for a touchdown as the Browns picked up 170 yards on the ground, more than they rushed for in their previous three games combined.

The Browns' defense turned in its best performance of the season, hassling Andy Dalton into throwing three interceptions: two to Buster Skrine and one to Craig Robinson.

Desmond Bryant recorded a pair of sacks to add to the misery of Dalton, who completed only 10 of his 33 passes.

Cleveland continued to bury the ghosts of its past incompetence, as the Browns snapped a 17-game losing streak in division road games.

The Browns are tied with Pittsburgh for first place in the AFC North at 6-3 and will host the Houston Texans on Nov. 16.

Cleveland Browns Celebration: What Went Right in the 22-17 Win Over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

November 3rd, 2014 at 7:45 AM
By Jeff D. Gorman

Some Cleveland Browns fans are worried that their favorite team is barely beating some of the worst teams in the league.

Those fans should remember that the Browns actually have a winning record (5-3) halfway through the season for the first time since 2007.

More importantly, the Browns are finding a way to win in the fourth quarter. In the past, they would invent a new way to lose every week.

In the 22-17 win over Tampa Bay, Brian Hoyer hit Taylor Gabriel with the winning touchdown pass with about nine minutes left in the game.

The defense held off the Bucs down the stretch. Safeties Donte Whitner and Tashaun Gipson have emerged as one of the strong suits of the defense.

The second half of the season will be much tougher, so it's way too early to print playoff tickets.

However, the best thing about the Browns is that they don't get rattled. They can be losing, the offense sputters, they punt, but they don't panic.

They just keep trying until something good happens.

The Cleveland Browns aren't a playoff team yet, but their progress over last year is undeniable.

Cleveland Browns Vs. Tennessee Titans: Preview and Prediction

October 4th, 2014 at 5:21 PM
By Jeff D. Gorman

The Cleveland Browns (1-2) and the Tennessee Titans (1-3) are both looking at each other as stepping stones to a better season.

One of these teams will be sorely disappointed.

On paper, the Cleveland Browns have better talent. Ben Tate and Jordan Cameron have been slowed by injuries, but they are hoping to power the Browns' offense.

Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker is coming off a wrist injury, and he has thrown four interceptions in his last two games.

This is the kind of game the Browns have to win make the transition to a respectable team. They will get the job done.

Prediction: Cleveland Browns 27. Tennessee Titans 10.
