Week 8 . . . Raiders @ Browns
For the second consecutive week, the Browns faced a previously winless team with a rookie starting quarterback. Both teams acted as if running the football was a capital offense as the Raiders managed only 71 rushing yards but the Browns gained only 39. Those yardage numbers are not for a quarter or a half . . . those are the totals for the entire game.
For the entire first half, this game belonged to the kickers. Billy Cundiff hit on three field goals (52, 33 and 26 yards) and Sebastian Janikowski added two for the Raiders (46 and 38 yards). The 3rd quarter belonged to the wife’s “to-do” list and the 4th quarter could only be described as the type of game that prison inmates are forced to watch because they have no choice.
