The Browns are finally winning games and that means the bandwagon is suddenly filling up by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilson_07 moments ago • 2 min read Hue Jackson is in unfamiliar territory. For the first time since coming to Cleveland ahead of the 2016 season he's having to manage players' expectations about becoming too comfortable with all the winning. Jackson entered 2018 with a 1-31 record, including a big ol' goose egg for all of 2017. But the Browns tied the Steelers in the season opener and are 2-2 in their subsequent four games. And while they're still in last place in the division (alongside Pittsburgh), this isn't like previous years. No one thinks the season is over; in fact, just the opposite -- the Browns are right in the thick of it for the first time since 2014, when they jumped out to a 6-3 record and even led the AFC North in November. Of course, they limped across the finish line, going 1-6 over the final two months of the season … [Read more...] about After Snoop Dogg visits Browns practice, Hue Jackson warns team against bandwagon fans
Three picks and a cloud of trust for Week 6 of the NFL season by Tom Fornelli @TomFornelli 30s ago • 3 min read Last week was brutal. I went 0-3 on my picks with a couple of tough losses. I took the Panthers -7 against the Giants, and then watched the Panthers take an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter, and when Eli Manning threw an interception on the next drive from his 26-yard line, I thought I was good. Unfortunately, that turnover was quickly followed by Cam Newton throwing a pick that Janoris Jenkins returned into Panthers territory. The Giants scored a few plays later, and I watched my cover dwindle.As bad as that was, however, the killer took place in Cincinnati. I had the Dolphins +4.5, and Miami had a 17-0 lead in the second half. I was golden! At least, I thought I was. Two defensive touchdowns and a 24-point fourth quarter later the Dolphins lost 27-17. It sucked. Hard. But, we move on and look to leave the nightmares behind us this … [Read more...] about NFL Week 6 odds, picks: Don’t trust Trubisky, Bears as road favorites plus more best bets

It was planned as the perfect Rocky Mountain road trip — a fast circle through unexplored parts of the state to celebrate my birthday, cement a relatively new romance and shake off a season of almost unbearable loss. All my German boyfriend has to do is make time in his crazy schedule, show up in his convertible and drive. Naturally, we break up two days before departure. After checking rental car rates on six days and a 1,000-plus miles, it’s time to beg on Facebook: “Does anyone have an extra car?” “Can you drive a shift? We’ve got an old Saab sitting around.” I give thanks to (and for!) my generous friends, decide to call the coupe “Jethro,” buy an America The Beautiful Parks Pass at REI, crank AMZY’s “Sorry Not Sorry” and hit the highway. Let the Saab story begin. Day one Denver to Pagosa Springs is five beautiful hours on U.S. 285, longer if you like to drink a lot of coffee, which I do. Curling down from … [Read more...] about Five day road trip through southwest Colorado: Hot springs, a national park, amazing food and more
