It's been a rough couple of weeks in Cleveland for the Browns and their fans.
After enduring a 31-13 drubbing by the Tennessee Titans in Week 4 and having their star running back Peyton Hillis embroiled in a media-generated controversy, the Browns are coming off a bye week and looking to bounce back against a tougher than it appears 3-2 Oakland Raiders team.
The Browns are looking to right the ship and prove the criticisms heaped on the team and on coach Pat Shurmur were addressed during the bye week, while the Raiders are hoping to stay on the right side of .500 and continue to ride the motivational wave that has precipitated from the passing of iconic owner Al Davis.
Oakland, frequently ridiculed for its off-field controversies and owner's box antics, is as always a tougher team than it appears to be. However, while the Raiders are harder to beat than they look, this is a winnable game for the Browns if they're on top of their game Sunday afternoon.
Following are six keys to victory for the Browns as they travel to the Bay Area in Week 6 and look to move to 3-2 on the season.
