The Cleveland Browns bounced back nicely from their Week 13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and nearly pulled off the unlikely upset of the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Last week, the entire team got “F” grades for the poor performance, but this week, it will be much different.
It’s not often that you can find so many positives in a loss, but that was the case in Sunday's 27-26 loss. The Browns played one of their more complete games of the 2013 season and showed that they are still battling every week.
Unfortunately, I cannot give the referees grades for their performance, but let's just say they would be very similar to the Browns grades last Monday.
This week’s report card is the kind that you’re proud to take home to mom.
As always, weekly grades are handed out based on how much a player impacted the game, if he won his individual battle, whether he was a positive contributor and if he could have performed better.
Let’s see how they did.
