Analysis: Weeden's first outing against the Lions was rough. He completed only a third of his passes and threw a pick in limited action. This time around, though, things looked much better. Cleveland clearly designed a much simpler plan for Weeden, and it worked relatively well for his second outing.
While he's still not blowing anyone away with his performances, Weeden is looking like the favorite after this one. Colt McCoy finished 4 of 6 for 58 yards while Seneca Wallace rounded out the group, playing the least amount of time. Pat Shurmur discussed treating this game like the dress rehearsal for the season, so if that was the case here, Weeden will be the quarterback to own...for now.
