The Cleveland Browns host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, hoping to snap a three-game losing streak. The Jags are shooting for a second straight win after dismantling the Colts last week.
Jacksonville Jaguars are feeling much better themselves following last week's dominating 17-3 win over the Indianapolis Colts last week. Granted, the Colts are awful, but when you're 3-6 you take what you can get, and for the Jags a 114-yard performance out of Maurice Jones-Drew and a functional performance from rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert is about all you can ask for.
The Cleveland Browns would take that right about now. When they host the Jags on Sunday they will be looking to avoid a fourth straight loss after starting the season 3-3. The Browns thought they had the St. Louis Rams dead-to-rights last week, but Phil Dawson sent what would have been the go-ahead 22-yard field goal wide left with just over two minutes left in the game. Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty may once again be relegated to the sideline with injuries Sunday, giving Chris Ogbonnaya another chance to carry the rushing load.
Sunday's game doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. The Jags may technically have a shot at making the playoffs in a topsy-turvy AFC South, but the Browns will have a tough time making it out of an AFC North that may be as good as any division in the league. No, this is one of those "pride" games, with the winner giving their fans some small thing to be proud about in what have so far been mediocre seasons.
