(: Hello Texans fans, a Browns fan here! I see a lot of parallels between the Texans and Cleveland Browns franchise. Namely, we both had to deal with the hardship of expansion. We've both had really stinky teams for several seasons, but we've stayed loyal. We've all had to deal with horrible quarterbacks (David Carr for you guys, Tim Couch - Charlie Frye for us). Now look, both teams are in playoff contention! Whoda' thunk it? I'll always like the Texans, just because of their similarities with Cleveland. Anyway, on to the game. I haven't really followed the Texans much this season, so I don't fully know what to expect from you guys. I'll give you a heads up about Cleveland though. If you guys expect to win, you *must* kick it to someone not named Josh Cribbs. This guy is underrated, and is the AFC version of Devin Hester. Derek Anderson is the real deal. This guy has pocket presence and has a rocket for an arm. While his accuracy isn't great, he puts enough mustard on the ball so that defenders have trouble picking him off. He has trouble throwing short balls (under five yards), and prefers throwing it down field. He's more mobile than most think. The 6'6" QB *can* break a tackle and buy time avoiding sacks. Our O-Line is one of the best in the league, letting Derek Anderson get sacked only ten times. Rookie Joe Thomas has yet to let a sack! (: We have explosive receivers. Kellen Winslow is our biggest clutch weapon. If you throw it within 5 yards of him, he'll find a way to come down with it. Braylon Edwards makes all the circus catches, but he does drop easy ones, quite a bit. Joe Jurevicius is our Mr. 3rd Down. If we need to convert an important 3rd down, the ball is going to him. Despite the stats, we've struggled running the ball this year. Jamal Lewis lost a step with age, and doesn't really have much breakaway speed. He still is capable of making big plays, however. Our change of pace back is Jason Wright. This youngster is fast and can shed a couple tackles. Our D is horrible -- Not much more to say. Our D-lineman can't pressure the QB, our linebackers can't make tackles, and our DBs are slow. Rookie DB Eric Wright (who's questionable for the game) has really stepped it up this season. Leigh Bodden is slow and gets burned more times than not, but has great hands and could very well come up with a pick in the game. Our safety Sean Jones is fast and if his blitz is not picked up, he can whack the QB pretty well. I'm sure you all saw Phil Dawson's field goal from last week. (: This guy is the man. 4th more accurate kicker in NFL history. My keys for you guys to win: *Keep the ball away from Josh Cribbs *Shut down the passing game -- Force Cleveland to run *Cleveland is managing 31.2 points per game, with Anderson starting -- Your offense must be able to put up at least 40 points. I see Cleveland winning this game in a shootout. Andre Johnson is going to have a big game against our secondary, though. I believe that if we can hold him to under 100 yards, Cleveland has a good shot of winning. It's Thanksgiving, and the Browns and Texans are playing a game against each other that matters! (: I love it! Is there anything Cleveland should look out for? Good luck this weekend!
