Things To Watch For: Colts and Browns

Backup quarterback Kevin Hogan accounted for the Browns only touchdown on a pass to rookie tight end David Njoku, but he also was picked off once, as Cleveland lost the turnover battle five to two. "This guy has played two games in the National Football League and we are already trying to compare what he does, or we act like he should be playing like Brett Favre or something". Last week he was 20 of 37 for 216 yards and a game destroying interception in overtime that gave the game to the Arizona Cardinals. Brissett scored his second touchdown of the game after a 7-yard run in the second quarter. Scott Tolzien got the first start, but was absolutely horrendous.

The Browns stand a good chance of getting an "early" win under their belts if they can travel well into IN today. Every week is going to be a tough one for us. But he'll try to forget the debacle he had in Week 2 against the Ravens, where he kept turning the ball over and struggled through migraine headaches all afternoon.

DeShone Kizer has emerged as the quarterback of choice for the lowly Browns, but he hasn't done anything extraordinary in the first couple of weeks of the season. While it took until Christmas Eve for the Browns to win past year, will they get a w before October? He started three games for the Browns this preseason and had two tackles and a sack.

With Andrew Luck missing the start of the year, things haven't been particularly fun for the Colts to start the year.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has confirmed that the quarterback has been ruled out for their game against the Cleveland Browns this Sunday, and since he's not going to practice this week, he will likely miss their week four game against the Seattle Seahawks as well on October 1. It needs to happen because the Colts are now ranked 31st in pass defense, which isn't exclusively indicative of how the back end of the defense has played in two weeks. Whichever team can run it will take pressure off the inexperienced quarterbacks. Eastern Time on Sunday.

Higgins is a name that was on absolutely nobody's radar on fantasy Draft Day. Kizer will be without his favorite target this week in Corey Coleman who broke a bone in his hand and will miss significant time after undergoing surgery earlier this week. That by itself doesn't mean much, but if he can continue to put up nice lines like the one he managed last week, he can be a factor for receiver-hungry teams. Sounds like Vegas wants you to take Indy. If such an opportunity presents itself again, will the Colts be able to make the plays to slam the door shut?
