This week, Marshall Faulk said, "After five weeks you begin to see what your team is made of. There are many aspects that go into being GMC Professional Grade: Focus, precision, consistency," and then asked us the following questions: "In one word – one word – can you describe your team right now? C’mon, c’mon, give it to me. And let me know, how long will it last?"
There are a lot of words I can think of, but I'll have to go with "thrilling." All four of the Browns' games have come down to the wire so far, by a very slim margin:
- Week 1: Steelers win 30-27 over Browns on FG as time expires.
- Week 2: Browns win 26-26 over Saints on FG with 0:03 to go.
- Week 3: Ravens win 23-21 over Browns on FG as time expires.
- Week 4: Browns win 29-28 over Titans on TD with 1:09 to go.
We all know how the Browns' unbelievable comebacks in Weeks 1 and 4. At home, Cleveland almost let a Week 2 performance against the Saints slip away from them, while in Week 3, the Browns missed opportunities to close the door on Baltimore. At 2-2, though, nobody can say they've been bored by a Browns game, because my heart has been racing up until the final whistle. Having such a close point differential is a rarity in the NFL too, and until the defense gets things figured out, I think the trend will continue:
The @Browns are the 1st NFL team since 2005 (Tampa Bay) to have each of their 1st four games decided by three points or fewer— Dan Murphy (@DMurph_BrownsPR) October 6, 2014
What one word would you use to describe the team's performance thus far?
