Week 3: Cleveland Browns 31, Minnesota Vikings 27- Post Game Thoughts

Let the quarterback controversy in Cleveland begin as Brian Hoyer steps in for the injured Brandon Weeden and throws for over 300 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Seriously though, try to figure this one out: Cleveland did not look good through their first two games this season and then they decided to deal Trent Richardson to the Colts.  Common sense would say that if they get rid of their best offensive player, they will struggle even more on that side of the ball.  In fact, the opposite happened and the Browns lit it up on Sunday.  Of course, the return of Josh Gordon helped a lot.  He had 10 receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown.  Also, Jordan Cameron is really emerging as one of the game’s finest young tight ends.  He hauled in three scores, including the game-winner from seven yards out.  No T-Rich, no problem.  The Browns gutted one out on the road in Minnesota.  As for the Vikings, things could not be much worse.  They have allowed 31+ points in all three of their games so far and are not running the ball nearly as well this season as they were last.  I guess it would be asking too much for Adrian Peterson to carry this team again this year, as great as he is.  Teams are starting to catch on to A.P. and even though he ran for 88 yards, he’d be the first to tell you that he should have more.  Peterson is yet to run for anything higher than 100 yards this season, and that is a big reason as to why the Vikings are wearing the 0-3 blemish on their back.
