The Senior Bowl practices took place this past week

 Darren Fells Jersey , with the game itself taking place on Saturday. The North Team, led by the Oakland Raiders’ coaching staff, defeated the South Team, led by the San Francisco 49ers’ coaching staff, by a score of 34-24.Last year, we were consumed with how the quarterbacks performed. This year, not so much (maybe it has to do with some guy named Baker Mayfield). Nonetheless, here is a recap of some Browns-related nuggets from the week.1. Some Recognition for Baker Mayfield: On Friday, the Senior Bowl named the Browns quarterback their 2018 Rookie of the Year! A video message from Mayfield played at the event:GM John Dorsey also talked about his advice for teams with respect to their draft interests, even if it’s for the No. 1 pick: why show your cards? Dorsey knew he wanted Mayfield in October 2017, but never tipped his hand.2. Freddie Kitchens Busy Jumping Right In: According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens spent about an hour talking with Dabo Swinney on the sidelines of the Senior Bowl. The two have long been friends, and Swinney is happy to see Kitchens get an opportunity.As far as coaching goes, Kitchens said he can’t wait until this coming Monday, when he will get to be with his full coaching staff for the first time. He didn’t attend the Senior Bowl last year because he was a new hire as the Browns running backs coach. The big thing that changes from a scouting perspective for him is that his eyes are opened to every position now: “I am evaluating defensive guys and offensive guys; receivers, tight ends, line, evaluating different positions,” said Kitchens.Kitchens also talked about his motivation for hiring Alabama defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi as his defensive line coach:3. Players Loosely Connected to Browns: It is not a major tipoff if scouts for a team meet or talk to a player. However, it is still fun to read about. According to Walter Football, here are three players the Browns’ scouts were seen having some conversation with:WR Terry McLaurin - Ohio StateLB Sutton Smith - Northern IllinoisLB Otaro Alaka - Texas A&MEven with the Browns having a solid end of the year for its group of receivers, McLaurin had a great week, no doubt improving his stock.4. A Personal Campaign? Usually, you hear about these things at the NFL Combine, but it’s never too early to start campaigning for a certain team, right? WR Andy Isabella, a native of Mayfield, Ohio T. J. Carrie Color Rush Jersey , made it clear to media that he is a Browns fan.Isabella says he can run a 4.26, and lots of projections this week labeled him as a great slot receiver at the NFL level. Here his is burning a defensive back during a practice:Another receiver to not sleep on is WR Penny Hart. He is only 5-8, 180 lbs, but is physical and very quick at the line of scrimmage:5. Some Help in the Trenches? The Browns could be in need of some help in the trenches on defense. Look no further than DT Khalen Saunders out of Western Illinois, who was beating top offensive linemen with dynamic moves — a pretty impressive feat for a 320-pounder.The other prospect who delivered was DE Montez Sweat out of Mississippi State. Scouts were curious to see how he would do against top talent, and he was impressive:Browns fans, let us know your impressions from Senior Bowl week! BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Other than trying to save a coach's job, secure the No. 1 overall draft pick or simply survive, the Browns haven't played many meaningful games in December or January.Sunday is an exception.With a chance to further legitimize themselves as no longer being the "same ‘ol Browns," and with their playoff pulse accelerating, the Browns go on the road to play the Houston Texans, who have won eight straight games and have perhaps the NFL's best defensive front seven. It's a daunting challenge for the Browns (4-6-1), but they feel up to it.With back-to-back wins for the first time since 2014, Cleveland's players are brimming with confidence. They're following brash rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield's lead and believe they can not only play with any team, but they can beat any team.Wide receiver Jarvis Landry isn't quite ready to say the Browns have arrived. But after so many miserable seasons, they're headed in the right direction."Listen, we're on our way," Landry said in a lively locker room earlier this week. "We're still not there. We're on our way. We've put complete games together, these last two have definitely been complete. But I believe that you never really, truly arrive. You're always trying to look for ways to get better. You're always trying to find things individually, as a team, as an offense to get better. But I'll say we're on our way. We're definitely on our way."The Browns avoided infamy last week by snapping their 25-game road losing streak with a resounding 35-20 win at Cincinnati, a victory punctuated by Mayfield's chilly handshake with former coach Hue Jackson afterward.The Mayfield-Jackson affair created some big headlines and debate, and also overshadowed the bigger story surrounding the Browns, who haven't been to the postseason since 2002.With a win on Sunday, Cleveland, which went 0-16 last season and went 1-31 under Jackson https://www.brownsfanshop.com , would move deeper into the AFC playoff picture, though still behind several teams.Imagine that.The fact the Browns are even playing a significant game in December is an accomplishment, and they'd like to be in a few more."If we want to have any postseason dreams, we got to keep this little streak going," defensive end Myles Garrett said.Cleveland hasn't fared well in late-season games, going 2-21 since 2013 in December and January, and 9-38 over the past 10 seasons. But those are past Browns teams, not this one, and after ending several losing streaks this season, Landry said he and his teammates understand what's in front of them."This game," said Landry, one of the few current Browns who has been to the playoffs — with Miami in 2016. "Win this game. That's the next step for us."If they're to be taken seriously, and if they intend to become consistent winners, the Browns must beat a quality team and the Texans certainly qualify. Houston is clicking following on 0-3 start. Quarterback Deshaun Watson looks fully recovered following knee surgery that ended his rookie season, and star defensive end J.J. Watt is healthy and terrorizing quarterbacks."We don't care about what they're doing," Landry said. "Obviously, we understand that they're on an eight-game winning streak. But for us, we know it's going to come down to us executing and doing the things that we do to put us in place to win the game. We're not really worried about what they're going to do. Obviously, we understand that they are a good football team, a great football team and we have to play our best game."If they can pull off the upset, the playoff talk in Cleveland might be heard from coast to coast. Mayfield, who has thrown seven TD passes and just 10 incompletions in his past two games, knows better than to look too far ahead."It is always great to have a big picture mindset, but for us right now, we have to take it one week at a time," he said. "If we do not take care of business, then it does not really matter. We have to win and focus each week for everything else to fall into place."NOTES: S Damarious Randall was added to the injury report with a hamstring issue and his questionable for Sunday. Interim coach Gregg Williams doesn't think Randall will miss the game.
