The Cleveland Browns collapsed as a defense last week. With the NFLPA investigating Eric Mangini and his hard work practices the Browns are in total disarray. It showed really well when Cleveland gave up 422 passing yards and five passing touchdowns to Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford last week.

What little defensive gains (1.11 passing TD per game and just over 230 passing yards per game) Cleveland had been making over the last few weeks appears to be gone.

RBs to sit:

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden owners have been disappointed this year with his performance as he has accumulated only 244 all-purpose yards through five games played.
