Rough start for Browns ... again

By Jamison Hensley

The Browns have been saying for weeks that they need to get off to faster starts. Well, there's always next week.

Cleveland is down 14-0 eight minutes into the game at Houston. After Cleveland allowed a 27-yard touchdown to Texans running back Ben Tate, Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya fumbled on his first carry. Houston converted that turnover into a 2-yard quarterback keeper by Matt Schaub.

Can't blame this one on Colt McCoy. The Browns have now been outscored 58-3 in the first quarter this season. Cleveland has been out gained 110-1 after the Texans' second touchdown.
