Brandon Weeden Begins Silencing Critics With Historic Day


Passing records have been easy to break recently, given the nature of the game and the way games were being officiated before the refs strike.

Still, few figured Browns QB Brandon Weeden would have the kind of day he had on Sunday after his 5-turnover (one of which was the WR’s fault), 5.4 QB rating, 115-yard performance in his debut.

While still working with young receivers, backs, tight ends and linemen, the 28 year-old Weeden threw for 322 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 picks in a 34-27 defeat on the road vs. the Bengals. His 309 net passing yards were the most the Browns have had without an interception since 310 net passing yards for Derek Anderson vs. the New York Giants on October 13th, 2008. The 322 passing yards without an interception was the most they’d had since Trent Dilfer passed 21/32, 336 yards and 3 TDs at Lambeau Field vs. the Packers on September 18th, 2005.

For fantasy people, most of Weeden’s strikes were to WR Mohamed Massaquoi (5-90), WR Greg Little (5-57-1), and back-up RB Chris Ogbonnaya (6-73). RB Trent Richardson had a great game as well: 19 rushes, 109 yards, 1 TD; 4 receptions, 36 yards, 1 TD.
