When last place Cleveland (6-4) met first place Atlanta (4-6), the man of the hour was Browns’ quarterback Brian Hoyer who went from villain to hero in a crazy fourth quarter.

About Ed Wyatt

Ed Wyatt grew up in Halfway, Maryland, following the Baltimore Colts like his football coach father. When he lost his Bert Jones #7 jersey at the Lincolnshire Elementary School playground, he should have taken it as an omen, since the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Ed has managed to avoid full time work by talking on the radio, smiling on the television and tapping on the keyboard of his computer. He won a number of local Emmy awards with the Seattle-based comedy show Almost Live! and hosted the Super Bowl live on Australian television for nine years. He is a graduate of Stanford University.

Week 10 – Cleveland @ Cincinnati: Worrying signs for Andy Dalton

After Cincinnati was beaten at home by archrival Cleveland, James Caughlin says the Bengals’ problems start and end with quarterback Andy Dalton.

About James Caughlin

Growing up in Brisbane Australia, James got into the NFL during the 2000 season thanks to the Madden NFL video game. His cousins told him to use the Patriots (as a prank on him) but 3 Super Bowls and multiple winning season’s later, he has had the last laugh. Now you will hear him yelling at the TV around 4am on a Monday morning watching every Patriots game live.

Week 7: Cleveland @ Jacksonville: This day in history

Columbus seeing land? The British surrendering at Yorktown? Sir Damon says they’re nothing compared to the Jacksonville Jaguars winning their first game of 2014.

About Sir Damon

Sir Damon (may or may not be his real name) grew up in Los Angeles but has spent most of his life riding the Hammersmith & City line from Wood Lane to Baker Street. He was a fan of the old Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe and while highly skeptical that the Jacksonville Jaguars will become “London’s team,” he’s willing to give it a shot.
