Another Surreal Sunday

For the second week in a row, the Browns had their fans shaking their heads in disbelief. This time it was from watching them hang half a hundred on the Cincinnati Bengals defense, an outcome that absolutely no one saw coming.

Jamal Lewis showed me a gear I didn't think he had in pulling away from Bengal defenders on his 66-yd touchdown run in the third quarter. Credit great offensive line play (no sacks) and great hands by Winslow, Edwards, Jurevicius, and in the end, Leigh Bodden, whose interception put it in the win column with 21 seconds to play.

Oh yeah, QB Derek Anderson didn't want to get traded after the game, so he threw five touchdown passes, tying the team record. Coach Crennel has to get some love too. He has been ripped all week, and his players had to know they needed to win soon for Romeo to last through the Bye Week.
