CLEVELAND - The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, who are two of the leagues early surprises at 2-2 under first-year coaches, Antworten

CLEVELAND - The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, who are two of the leagues early surprises at 2-2 under first-year coaches, meet tonight as Week 5 of the NFL season begins. Jimmy Garoppolo Youth Jersey . Buffalo and Cleveland have been sparked by opportunistic defences, and one team will emerge from a short week with momentum before the leaves drop and the weather along Lake Erie turns harsh and unforgiving. You can listen to the game live on TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto at 8:30pm et. The chance to play in the national spotlight has Browns nose tackle Phil Taylor revved up. "Oh, yeah, the whole world is watching," he said. "Every little thing you do, you know everyone is going to see it." Two weeks ago, the Browns seemed ready to slide into a hole and disappear. After dropping to 0-2, they traded star running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, a stunning move that had some Cleveland fans ready to storm the teams training facility with pitchforks and torches. But just when things seemed bleakest, quarterback Brian Hoyer, a lifelong Browns fan himself, rode to the rescue. Displaying poise and leadership he learned as Tom Bradys understudy in New England, Hoyer has been a revelation for the Browns, and now must deliver again. He kept the starting job this week despite Brandon Weeden being cleared to play after spraining his right thumb. "As a competitor, you want to be the guy out there on the field, so Im obviously excited about that," Hoyer said. For the Bills to keep making progress, theyll need more consistency from rookie quarterback EJ Manuel. He passed for just 167 yards last week against Baltimore, but Buffalos defence intercepted Joe Flacco five times to win. While all 32 NFL teams play on a Thursday — not so for Sunday or Monday nights — this is a chance for the Bills and Browns to prove worthy of future exposure. "If youre on Sunday or Monday nights it means you are bringing in the Ws," Taylor said. "Weve got to keep winning." Five more reasons for tuning in to see the Browns host the Bills: RUNNING ON EMPTY: Buffalos robust rushing attack may not be so healthy this week. Running backs C.J. Spiller (left ankle) and Fred Jackson (sprained left knee) both got hurt last Sunday against the Ravens. They were limited in practice this week and Jackson plans to play in a brace. The Bills are averaging 152 yards per game — second in the league — and theyll be facing a stingy defence limiting teams to just 79 yards and 2.9 per carry, a league low. "Theyre very strong," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "They do a very good job of holding the edges." M-I-N-G-O, MINGO IS HIS NAME-O: Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo is a rising star. In just three games, the No. 6 overall draft pick has three sacks, knocked down a couple passes and would have blocked a punt if he wasnt held. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder seems to be playing in a different gear as he has blown past offensive linemen with ease. Mingo is the first player with a sack in his first three games since 2004. ROOKIE THIEF: The Bills have a special rookie linebacker, too. Kiko Alonso is a ball magnet. Alonso had two interceptions last week, including the clincher with 57 seconds remaining to secure Buffalos stunner over Baltimore. Through four games, Alonso has four picks and leads the team with 32 tackles, 19 solo. Alonso is the first rookie linebacker to have an interception in three straight games since 1980, and just the fourth linebacker to have four interceptions in September. HAPPY RETURNS: Browns CB Joe Haden hasnt returned an interception for a touchdown in his career — pro or college — and he wouldnt mind getting his first on national TV. Haden, whose coverage on Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green keyed Clevelands win, said hes been planning a TD celebration dance for years. "Before the games," he said, "Im always thinking, If I run this way, Im jumping in this way. Or if I run this way, Im jumping over here. Its seven years in the making. The dance has changed with the new music coming out, so Ive been waiting on it." BROWNS TOWN: At halftime, Cleveland will honour legendary running back Jim Brown, the greatest Brown of them all. Brown reunited with the only team he played for earlier this year by accepting a role as an adviser. There had been a bitter separation that caused him to skip a Ring of Honor ceremony in 2010, but No. 32 is back and will be saluted for his on-field accomplishments and contributions to the Cleveland community. Mike McGlinchey Jersey . After seven wins in a row, they have to do it one more time to get into the playoffs. Frank Gore Jersey . - Doug Kalitta led Top Fuel qualifying Friday in the NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway with a 3. . They never thought it would take some blood, too. Kevin Love grabbed his 4,000th career rebound as part of a 19-point, 13-board effort to lead the Timberwolves over the Utah Jazz 112-97 on Tuesday night.Tampa, FL - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with wide receiver Louis Murphy on a multi-year contract extension. Murphy had been scheduled to become a free agent after the season. The Florida product caught 31 passes for 380 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games this season before being placced on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Jerry Rice Jersey. The 27-year-old Murphy has played in 82 NFL games with the Raiders, Panthers, Giants and Buccaneers, totaling 152 receptions for 2,124 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has also carried the ball 14 times for 146 yards and one touchdown. ' ' '
