Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2008-10-03
--How much do the Browns miss injured Joe Jurevicius (knee) and Donte Stallworth (quadriceps)? Jurevicius caught 50 passes for the Browns last season and Stallworth caught 46 for the Patriots. Their replacements, Syndric Steptoe and Steve Sanders, have a combined eight catches. That projects to 32 over 16 games.


--Phil Dawson is having a perfect season so far. He is six of six on field-goal tries and four of four on extra points. A sign the offense is struggling, though, is all his field-goal attempts have been inside 40 yards.

--Talks are open between the Browns and agent Drew Rosenhaus about a contract extension for Kellen Winslow Jr., but general manager Phil Savage says there is nothing new to report.

"For the most part, those kinds of things are on the back burner," Savage said. "The first priority is to win a football game. Those kinds of things tend to sort themselves out over time. You have to have some patience with it. That's what we're trying to do in some of these contract situations."

Winslow is under contract through 2010, but he announced at the Super Bowl he would like a new contract. He has to get in line, however. Safety Sean Jones is a free agent after this season and Braylon Edwards' contract is up after 2009.

--The 23 points the Browns have scored in the fourth quarter this season equals the combined total of what they've scored in the first three quarters. They scored 17 in the fourth quarter in Cincinnati, meaning they scored 37 percent of their point total in one period.

--Fullback Lawrence Vickers escaped serious injury in Cincinnati when he was hit by a thrown beer bottle on Jamal Lewis' one-yard touchdown run. He said the barrel of the bottle hit him on the helmet. The mouth of the bottle hit him across his eye, leaving a small cut. He joked about it ruining his modeling career.

BY THE NUMBERS: 3 -- The Browns held each of their last three opponents -- the Steelers, Ravens and Bengals -- under 300 yards after allowing the Cowboys 487 yards.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "When you're 0-3 and you win a game, there's not much joy -- just relief. I think there was a sense of relief from the whole team, not just the quarterback." -- Browns general manager Phil Savage, on going into the bye with a victory.
