The Browns' defense was the only reason the team had a chance to win. Defensive coordinator Dick Jauron drew up a master gameplan against the Eagles, and it was apparent that Vick was confused and rattled for the majority of the game. Vick was picked off four times and hit 11 times.
CB Joe Haden, S T.J. Ward and LBs D'Qwell Jackson, L.J. Fort and Craig Robertson all forced turnovers. They gave up a fair share of rushing yards, allowing Eagles RB LeSean McCoy to run for 110 yards on 20 carries.
The bottom line, though, is that they only gave up 17 points to a potentially explosive offense like the Eagles. Also, remember they did all of this with three starters out of the lineup in LBs Fujita and Gocong, as well as DL Phil Taylor.
It looks as though the rookies on this defense, such as DL Billy Winn, DL John Hughes, LBs L.J. Fort and Craig Robertson, will help this defense be a lot better than expected.
