Browns' Lewis boring but effective in Week 5

Most fantasy football owners probably think nothing interesting happened in what had to be a riveting 6-3 Cleveland Browns win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Not true! Jamal Lewis returned from his hamstring injury and ran for 117 yards on 31 carries. Hard to believe, eh? And his fantasy performance could have been better than 11 fantasy points because it looked as if he scored a touchdown on the play before Billy Cundiff's winning field goal. According to the officials, who didn't even review the play, Lewis didn't get the touchdown. In fact, nobody did for 60 mind-numbing minutes. But that doesn't mean nothing noteworthy happened.

Browns coach Eric Mangini made me laugh with one of his postgame quotes:

    "He's got those fresh legs. He had a lot of juice. I really liked the way he pushed the pocket after contact."
