How to watch Texans vs. Browns 2014 online: Time, TV schedule, radio and live stream

Houston aims to keep its playoff hopes alive while Cleveland continues to charge toward an improbable AFC North crown.

The Cleveland Browns are the story of the NFL in 2014. After having all sorts of problems finding a head coach this offseason, Cleveland settled on Mike Pettine. To this point, Pettine's hiring appears to be a stroke of genius. The former defensive coordinator has the Browns at 6-3 and leading their division after 10 weeks for the first time since 1994, back when Bill Belichick was coach. On Sunday, Cleveland will try to continue its surprising campaign at home against the Houston Texans.

Cleveland has been winning despite last year's league-leading receiver Josh Gordon not playing a down due to suspension and Jordan Cameron being out with a concussion. Cameron has only played in six games this season and has underperformed, catching 13 passes for 250 yards. In Gordon's case, he is eligible to return to practice Monday, giving Brian Hoyer a terrific target on the outside.

Houston is coming off a bye week and is implementing a change at quarterback. After watching Ryan Fitzpatrick stumble to a 4-5 record, head coach Bill O'Brien has decided to insert Ryan Mallett. Houston traded with the New England Patriots for Mallett in the offseason and didn't draft a quarterback with a high draft pick, showing faith in Mallett as a long-term answer. A fourth-year pro out of Arkansas, Mallett will make his first career start on Sunday.
