Bills 13, Browns 6
The Browns are a team that runs the football.

The Bills have one of the worst run defenses in the league. So why did the Browns manage only a pair of field goals?

The playcalling was bizarre. The Browns would run twice, get a third and three, then pass and await disaster. This pattern happened several times.

Jake Delhomme's at the end of the road. The only thing I know for sure is that Delhomme fits in this offense poorly. So do all the receivers. The veteran probably isn't capable of being a starting quarterback anymore.

The thing is, people blame the offensive coordinator for the woes. I'm not saying Brian Daboll is Lindy Infonte, but every call runs through Eric Mangini. This is his offense, and has been for two years.

There's a chance the Browns could lose out. I think they have to win two of the team's three games left to save Mangini's job. Regardless, Daboll's done as coordinator after this year.

The whole passing game is pretty much limited to Ben Watson. Delhomme gets MoMass more involved than Colt or Seneca do, but it doesn't change the fact that the Browns have nothing to keep defenses from stacking the box and keying on Hillis.

Mangini has a conservative offensive philosophy, and nothing will change that. But I don't think even he wants to be this conservative.

The Browns need two new starting receivers who are better than what they currently have. Until they get that, this offense is going to be one-dimensional and not very adept at scoring.
