Well, this certainly wasn't expected. I mean c'mon how are the Browns going to beat the Saints?

It was bout as lack lust a performance as you'll ever see an offense have that puts up 30 points. I mean the starting running back only had one more yard rushing than the punter. McCoy's stats were unimpressive, but compared to the QB play of the end of last season it was tremendous.

The defense played well. They forced many turnovers and for the most part were able to shut down the Saints, which is surprising considering how porous the secondary has been. It just shows what effective pressure can do to even one of the best Quarterbacks in the game.

Trick plays too. You gotta have trick plays.

I'd like to think this will be the turning point, but the more I think about it, yesterday was probably a fluke.

This is a new part to my Browns' Monday post. I'm calling it projections. The idea here is to project what the playoff teams will be given the current data.

With 6 of 17 precincts reporting

AFC North: Too Close to Call(Steelers/Baltimore)
AFC East: Too Close to Call(NYJ/N.E.)
AFC South: Too Close to Call(Indy, Tennessee, Houston)
AFC West: Kansas City Chiefs
Wildcard : AFC North 2nd place and AFC East 2nd place

NFC North: Green Bay Packers(based on exit polling)
NFC East: Too Close to Call(Washington, Philadelphia, NYG)
NFC South: Too Close to Call(Atlanta, New Orleans)
NFC West: Seattle Seahawks
Wildcard: NFC East 2nd place and 3rd place

No Longer in the Race: San Francisco, Carolina, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo

On the Brink of Dropping Out: Dallas, San Diego, Denver, Oakland, Jacksonville, Cincinnati, Minnesota
