Cleveland looking to turn season around
The current edition of the Cleveland Browns is resembling the Kardiac Kids.
Twelve of their regular season games were decided by seven points or less, and in the Divisional Playoff game against the Oakland Raiders they drove the length of the field in less than two minutes before strong safety Mike Davis intercepted a Sipe pass in the end zone, securing a 14-12 victory.
Flash-forward to the present, and the latest collection of Browns have their own flair for the dramatic. Under coach Butch Davis, 26 of the team's 41 games have been decided in the final minute, including six of the eight this season. Last season, they used that never say die mentality to their advantage, finishing 9-7 and earning a wildcard berth in the playoffs. However, they've been less successful this year, and are 3-5 at the halfway point.
