I would imagine that, outside of Cleveland and Seattle's own fanbases, this was probably the least-watched NFL game in uh, the history of football. Unless there is a chance it produces a win for your own team, I'd put the chance that there's general NFL fan interest in watching a 6-3 game somewhere between zero and non-existent.
As Browns fans, we hate to complain too much about the lack of scoring, because a win is a win, whether you squeak it out with just six points or bludgeon someone with 46 points.
But overall, what we really saw here was something that might be called "The Battle of the Ineffective Offenses."
Of course, much credit for the lack of scoring has to go to the great defense we saw today (more on this later), but it was still glaringly obvious that much of the reason behind the three-field goal contest wasn't about good defense; it was bad offense. Or at least unproductive offense.
In the Browns' case, I'm hesitant to call it truly "bad." After all, they ran the ball productively against a great run defense, and well, they won. Perhaps "unproductive" is a fairer assessment for the Browns, and somewhere between that and actually "bad" would apply to the Seahawks.
On the Browns' side, while the running game was on point, the passing game didn't exactly look great. McCoy did a decent job of doing what he could (including taking a horrible beating behind the line all day and gutting out a 13-yard run for a first down when he had to), so I don't have a ton of complaints about his performance.
The receivers weren't great, but it's also important to remember that both Mohamed Massaquoi and Ben Watson left the game with head injuries, leaving the receiving corps depleted early.
One other encouraging thing I saw: Greg Little, despite not having put up huge numbers by any means, showed why the Browns wanted him so badly in the draft. We saw his vaunted reputation for picking up yards after a catch today, which proved both how much it has hurt the Browns not to have someone like him in the past and why such a skill is so valuable to an offense.
