Cleveland’s Losing Streak Ends, Oakland’s Goes On

Talk about that old cliché, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory! After all, 21 to 3 is a pretty substantial lead. That’s what our Raiders had going in the first half of our game with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. So how did the game end up 24-21? I can’t really point to any one thing, partly because my head’s still spinning. It was like the Browns had been snoozing and then suddenly woke up ready to play.

Their quarterback, Charlie Frye, had a hot streak and he fired up the rest of his team. But if it can happen for Frye and the Browns, it can happen for Andrew Walter (this was his first NFL start, remember) and for Aaron Brooks, when he gets healthy again.
