Johnny Manziel impressed in his start against the 49ers. Can he keep that up?
FOX Sports - No. 26 (Up 6 from Last Week)
The Browns seem foolish not going with Johnny Manziel a week earlier after the second-year quarterback put together another strong performance, and this time, he got the win.
NFL.com - No. 26 (Up 6 from Last Week)
Why did Cleveland move so high (well, at least for the Browns)?
a) They stomped the 49ers, who beat both the Falcons and Ravens, on Sunday.
b) Far more importantly, the Browns found a viable quarterback, unlike the Cowboys' and Ravens' backups.
c) They're not the Falcons, who have functioned more like Mylanta than Atlanta lately.
d) The defense posted nine sacks Sunday.
Yahoo Sports - No. 30 (Up 2 from Last Week)
