Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner said last week the best thing the Browns offense did in wins over Buffalo and Cincinnati was not turn the ball over.
Brandon Weeden then returned to the starting lineup against Detroit and turned the ball over. Twice.
And one is quickly becoming infamous -- the backward, back-to-the-line-of-scrimmage backhand flip.
What do two interceptions mean to the Browns?
In their history in the NFL since 1950 the Browns have had 192 games when they threw two interceptions. Their record in those games is 73-117-2, a won-lost percentage of .385.
However, the Browns have had only one game in which their quarterback threw a backward, reverse flip.
They are 0-1 in those kind of games.
Too, they’ve had only game when they had a backward flip and gained just 5 yards in the third quarter.
They are also 0-1 when that happens.
