Brandon Weeden has shown the ability to throw the deep ball, but completing it is another matter. Since his second pass of the season sailed over the head of a streaking Mohamed Massaquoi, the Browns' rookie quarterback has struggled with his long throws, particularly to the right side of the field. Weeden did not complete a pass on four tries down the right side Sunday that traveled 21-plus yards, according to The Plain Dealer's Dennis Manoloff, who is charting all the quarterback's passes this season.

When Dean Pees and the Ravens defense watched tape of their Week 2 win over the Cleveland Browns, they saw Brandon Weeden at quarterback and Trent Richardson carrying the load at running back. Wide receiver Josh Gordon was nowhere to be found as he was serving his two-game league suspension. There have been cha-cha-changes in Cleveland over the past several weeks, though. Weeden has been benched twice in favor of journeymen, first for Brian Hoyer and now for Jason Campbell. Richardson was traded to the Indianapolis Colts and the Browns have replaced him with former Ravens running back Willis McGahee.

BEREA, Ohio - Much was made of the Browns' decision to draft a 28-year-old quarterback a season ago. But if Brandon Weeden fails to produce this fall, his age likely becomes inconsequential to Cleveland fans. “If Brandon doesn't do it this year, we're going to be starting over again at quarterback,” former Browns coach Sam Rutigliano said. Not long ago, few could imagine giving up on a first-round quarterback after just two seasons. Nowadays, few would refute Rutligliano's assessment.

It's not often that a modest 1-yard gain in a season-opening loss holds so much significance. When Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson took his first handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden three weeks ago, he carried the hopes of a championship-starved city still praying for its first Super Bowl title, while ushering in yet another new era for the floundering franchise. The Browns, who have had one winning season and five head coaches in the past decade, traded up to select Richardson third overall in April's draft and 19 spots later used another first-round draft pick on Weeden.

Ravens 27, Browns 13: The Ravens aren't as bad as they looked over the course of the last 40 minutes of the game in Denver, but Peyton Manning in the zone can do damage to your self-esteem. The Browns came up small once again in their home-opener, and quarterback Brandon Weeden is immediately under pressure to prove he's not headed for bust-ville (as opposed to, say, Canton)

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is the winner of the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top fourth- or fifth-year signal-caller in college football. "Andrew personifies everything that my father stood for. He is not simply an outstanding quarterback, but an outstanding individual, a leader both on and off the field," said John C. Unitas, Jr., President of The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation. Luck, who passed for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns for a 167.5 passer rating in leading fourth-ranked Stanford to an 11-1 record, will be presented the award Friday at the Intercontinental Harbor Court downtown.

Browns 7, Chargers 6 Strategy: The Cleveland Browns haven't significantly altered their philosophies since they traveled to M&T Bank Stadium in Week 4, but they are executing much more efficiently. On offense, they want to pound the ball with rookie running back Trent Richardson and attack defenses with quick throws, screen passes and deeper throws off play action. Defensively, they usually rushed four or five defenders on Sunday and mixed up their coverages behind their 4-3 front.

Since Joe Flacco became the Ravens starting quarterback in 2008, here's a list of everyone who's started for the Browns: Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Ken Dorsey, Bruce Gradkowski, Colt McCoy, Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, Brandon Weeden, Thad Lewis, Brian Hoyer and now Jason Campbell.

Chiefs 23, Browns 17 Strategy: While their offense has undergone changes since the Ravens hosted them in Week 2, the Browns continue to have one of the NFL's better defenses. They have a stout 3-4 base defense, and while they do a good job of getting after the quarterback with their four-man rushes, they like to mix in creative blitzes to generate pressure. Their pass rush, along with their mixed coverages, helps mask weak spots in the secondary. Their personnel at the skill positions have changed, but they have not made major tweaks to their offense.

The revolving door has spun around once again in Cleveland, revealing yet another quarterback change for the Browns. For Sunday's game against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Jason Campbell steps under center to start an NFL regular-season game for the first time since 2011. The 31-year-old replaces demoted starter Brandon Weeden , who was uninspiring in his chance to reclaim his grip on the job following Bryan Hoyer 's season-ending knee injury.

Cleveland Browns management had supposedly given up on this season three weeks ago when they traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a first-round draft pick. The conventional thinking was Browns CEO Joe Banner and general manager Mike Lombardi were consumed with the future and regarded the current roster as expendable. The players apparently didn't receive the memo about this being another rebuilding season. The Browns (3-2)

Brian Hoyer grew up rooting for the Cleveland Browns as a young boy, wearing a Bernie Kosar jersey while sitting in the upper deck of old Municipal Stadium with his father. Now Hoyer is the Browns' starting quarterback with starter Brandon Weeden ruled out for the second game in a row because of a sprained right thumb suffered during a loss two weeks ago to the Ravens. These are heady times for Hoyer, a Cleveland St. Ignatius graduate preparing for his second NFL start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

It seemed inevitable that Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden would end up crashing to the ground as the Ravens' defense relentlessly chased him around the pocket Sunday. Utilizing an extensive blitz package with two minutes remaining in the first half of the Ravens' 14-6 victory M&T Bank Stadium, at least five defenders had a legitimate shot at sacking Weeden. Inside linebackers Daryl Smith and Arthur Brown wound up splitting the sack after trapping Weeden in the backfield.

Cardinals, Browns Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune I never thought I'd be writing this, but the team that might remain unblemished the longest could be the Cardinals. Their 3-0 record is more impressive than the 3-0 records of the Falcons and Texans because the Cardinals have beaten better teams — the Seahawks, Patriots and Eagles. And the Cardinals should be heavy favorites in at least their next three games, against the Dolphins, Rams and Vikings. The team that could be the last remaining team without a win is the Browns.

BEREA, Ohio -- Receiver Greg Little stressed Friday that he and Brandon Weeden are working hard to get in synch, and that the receivers and quarterbacks studied tape together this week in an effort to do that. "I spent a lot more time watching film with Brandon and the quarterbacks and I think that's going to help us more," he said. "Usually we watch them as receivers, quarterbacks, but we've been watching them together. We'll kind of get what (the defense is) thinking and that way we'll all be on the same page.” Against the Dolphins, Little caught only four of the 10 passes thrown his way for 26 yards, and dropped two.
