BROWNS NEWS FROM THE OBR NEWSWIRE (RSS)

Of the 25 stories placed on the newswire since 10PM last night, most are focusing on the Browns playoff aspirations, and the importance of Sunday's game against the Bills.

Here are this morning's stories on the subject, from a variety of sources. With no player availability in Berea yesterday, there wasn't a lot more to really publish in the morning papers:

DDN  Dispatch  Chronicle-Telegram  News-Herald  Tribune-Chronicle  Rochester D-C  ABJ

There's a lot more on the newswire, per usual, including a discussion on the high cost of stadium repairs, chaos among the Jets crowd, and the never-ending Greed-Off 2007.
