Browns have two touchdowns in loss
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (12/15/13) The Browns DST scored two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Bears -- one in the second quarter off a Jay Cutler interception and the other in the third off a Martellus Bennett fumble.
The Browns had two interceptions in the game -- both were courtesy of Tashaun Gipson. They also sacked Jay Cutler twice. It was the third consecutive game with multiple sacks for the Browns and the third game in the last five with multiple interceptions.
The Browns play the Jets in Week 16. They could be a nice sleeper option, considering the matchup and momentum at their back.

Ward (shoulder).

It's been a long time since the Browns DST was great for Fantasy Football but the new coaching staff is hoping to change things. The Browns hired Ray Horton to coordinate the defense after he and the Cardinals parted ways. The Browns will move to a 3-4 front and spent a lot of money in free agency to make the unit look good. Paul Kruger and first-round pick Barkevious Mingo will join Jabaal Sheard and Quentin Groves as pass rushers and the defensive line was fortified with the addition of end Desmond Bryant. The Browns will have big men up front, D'Qwell Jackson in the middle and a young secondary headlined by Joe Haden and T.J. Ward. With Horton calling the shots the team should improve on the 38 sacks and 17 interceptions they had last year while finishing 19th against the run and 25th against the pass. Save for some big moves we'd look for the Browns DST off waivers as a one-week replacement. (Updated 5/15/13)
