The night after a Browns game isn't as crazy for news articles and links as a jump into Google news might suggest. There are only really four local sources that pump out same day Browns news. They are the Associated Press, Plain Dealer, Official Team Site, and the OBR.

If you keep an eye on the dozens of articles hitting the web about the Browns on a game day, you'll find that the vast majority of them are just slightly modified versions of the same AP story with different titles or minor editing by whichever unit is running them.

So, while it may look like there are fifty reports on the Browns win over Baltimore, about 95% of them are just the same thing, so we'll just link one on the newswire (rss). There. Done.

Here's the rest, with a guest early appearance by a story on the Canton Repository, which is gradually getting into the same-day news game.

The weirdness of the field goal situation at the end of the game caused some national pundits to awaken from their naps and write various things after seeing five minutes of highlights on the news.

Hands up... who thinks John Clayton could find Cleveland on a map without asking his executive assistants for help?
