BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns coach Pat Shurmur believes his young team could have done “a lot of things” better in Sunday’s 17-16 win Miami.
The Browns are 2-1 for the first time since 2002, but Shurmur bemoaned the team’s inability to get off to a good start for the third straight week. Most of Cleveland’s problems were on offense as the Browns struggled to move the ball before quarterback Colt McCoy put together a game-winning 80-yard drive in the final minutes.
Shurmur said running back Peyton Hillis, who missed Sunday’s game with strep throat, reported for team meetings on Monday and has improved. Hillis stayed with the team at their downtown hotel, but was sent home about two hours before kickoff when his symptoms worsened.
