The map below lists the games that will air on FOX at the 1:00 PM EST time slot (coming from 506sports) this Sunday. Most of Ohio gets the game this week, as does all of Michigan, but not too many other places do. Keep in mind that this is Cleveland's first FOX game this season. Determine based on the map below whether you will get to see the Lions vs. Browns game this week The Browns game will be commented by Tom McCarthy and Heath Evans. I thought a matchup between the 3-2 Lions and the 3-2 Browns might warrant one of FOX's better announcing teams, but they've stuck us with their Z-crew. I'm not certain, but this might be the first time McCarthy and Evans have ever teamed up to call an NFL game. Hopefully they turn out to be one of those underrated-and-pleasant crews. If you live in the Cleveland area, these are the games you will be able to watch on Sunday: WEEK 6 NFL GAMES AIRING IN CLEVELAND MARKET ON SUNDAY 1:00 PM EST:Detroit Lions vs. Cleveland Browns (FOX) 4:05 PM EST: Tennessee Titans vs. Seattle Seahawks (CBS) 4:25 PM EST: New Orleans Saints vs. New England Patriots (FOX) 8:30 PM EST: Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys (NBC) The Thursday night game features the New York Giants vs. the Chicago Bears. I don't think many people will be tuning in to see the disastrous Giants. We will have a game thread for that here at Dawgs By Nature. Here is a tentative, but not complete, list of the TV networks that will air the Lions vs. Browns game, per 506sports: [FOX] Lions @ Browns 1 PM EDT-------------------------------------------South Bend, IN WSJVAlpena, MI WBKB-DT2Detroit, MI WJBKFlint, MI WSMHGrand Rapids, MI WXMILansing, MI WSYMTraverse City, MI WFQXCleveland, OH WJWColumbus, OH WTTEToledo, OH WUPWYoungstown, OH WYFXErie, PA WFXPSpokane, WA KAYUCharleston, WV WVAH

One of the most noticeable differences between Hoyer and Weeden is getting rid of the ball. Weeden was sacked five times by the Bills and has been sacked 16 times in the three games he has played.

At the Cleveland Indians Wild Card game last Wednesday night, one Tribe fan was kicked out for standing up during the game. I’m sure that’s the story that one fan has been telling to anyone who was willing to listen since he was removed from Progressive File late into the Wild Card loss. He’ll also likely be trying to force people to watch the cell phone video footage he took of the police officer who told him to sit down in the first place. “Can you believe that?” he’ll say. “A cop telling me to sit down at a playoff baseball game!?!? It’s the playoffs!” He’ll feel bolstered by his buddies who will tell him he’s right. They’ll tell him that as a paying customer, if he wants to stand up, he’s within his rights! And for a police officer sitting on the field to intervene in his standing to watch? Well, that’s just garbage. He would be right, too… if that’s how it went down. I was there sitting close by, so I can tell you what really happened. I’ve thought a lot about this, so I figured I would tell my version of the story. Let’s give this antagonistic protagonist a name. I don’t know his name, but I think for the purposes of the story he needs one. So, I’ll use the worst of my judgmental personality to let this book be not only judged by its cover, but given a title too. If it was an earlier decade, his name would probably be Jerry. Jerry is a name for a guy who can be a bit smooth, but also a bit greasy. Think about what it felt like the first time you saw Jerry Maguire after Tom Cruise jumped up and down on Oprah’s couch. Alas, in this day and age, Jerry feels a bit antiquated as a name, so it’s not quite right. This was definitely a Steve, but you know for sure he goes by Stevie because it sounds better coming out of the overly loud mouths of his buddies who “just like to have a good time” and think everything’s “classic!” There’s nothing wrong with the name Steven or Stephen, of course. It’s a perfectly fine name. Even Steve or Stevie are potentially O.K. but when you imagine someone saying Stev-ie with a huge baritone accent on the second half of the name, it plays more into a stereotype that I think fits our guy. Now that I’ve unleashed a stereotype carpet-bombing, let me finish the job. You can tell that Stevie considers himself fashionable, wearing expensive jeans, and fancy looking leather shoes. These are the kinds of shoes that look enough like boots with their pointed toes that they could double as formal wear in a country bar. But he’s not dressed “country” as much as he looks like a slightly out-of-shape male lead in a Rascal Flatts video. Dressing nicely is admirable, but some people look like they’re just trying too hard. He wears cologne for sure, but it’s not just a scent for him. He’s created a storyline for his scent so when he gets a chance to talk to “the ladies” about it, he can use it like a conversational prop. Nobody really has pickup lines per se, but let’s just assume that the women who’ve shared company with Stevie might have a few laughs comparing similar notes. Stevie seems a bit on the unique side when you first meet him as long as you don’t mind that he’s just a collection of other people’s favorite things rather than anything approximating a real unique individual. Stevie is definitely in his late 30′s, but whenever he tells people how old he is he expects them to say they don’t think he’s anywhere near that old. “Age is just a number,” is not only a motto for going out on a young people’s party night like Thursday, but a way to ward off the slowly approaching fear that Stevie’s becoming the creepy old guy in the bar. He doesn’t have any grey hair just yet, but that mysterious crop circle is starting to for

The Detroit Lions try to bounce back on the road this week against the Cleveland Browns. Next up for the Detroit Lions is a road game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. Here's an early look at the Browns: Cleveland Browns (3-2) Schedule so far Week 1 - vs. Dolphins - lost, 23-10Week 2 - at Ravens - lost, 14-6Week 3 - at Vikings - won, 31-27Week 4 - vs. Bengals - won, 17-6Week 5 - vs. Bills - won, 37-24 Reason for optimism The Browns are on a three-game winning streak after opening the season 0-2. What changed? A big part of the turnaround involved starting Brian Hoyer at quarterback. He really fueled that winning streak, but he tore his ACL last week and is now out for the season. It's true that Brandon Weeden came in and led the Browns to victory against the Bills, but will the streak continue with him returning as the full-time starter? At the very least, I'm sure the Lions are pleased that they will be facing Weeden rather than Hoyer. Reason for pessimism At the same time, the Browns as a team have been much better as of late. Since trading Trent Richardson, they've gone 3-0. Getting Josh Gordon back from a suspension greatly helped, as he's caught 18 passes for 303 yards and 2 touchdowns in only three games. Also, Jordan Cameron has been outstanding at tight end, catching 33 passes for 396 yards and 5 touchdowns. If the Lions can't keep Gordon and Cameron in check, it could be a long day for the defense. Storyline to watch The top storyline for the Browns going into this game has to be the switch at quarterback because of Hoyer's season-ending injury. Going into last week, Hoyer was the clear starter at quarterback given how well he had played, but now Weeden has another chance to be at the top of the depth chart. If he struggles on Sunday, the crowd will let him hear it, and the Browns could have a tough situation on their hands at quarterback.

Since when is the NFL supposed to feel like MLB around the trade deadline? A couple of days after more trade rumors surfaced about Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, head coach Rob Chudzinski again insisted during Wednesday's press conference that the team's top receiver is not being shopped: Chudzinski shoots down all Josh Gordon trade rumors. "We're not shopping Josh and we have no plans of trading Josh." #Browns — Tom Withers (@twithersAP) October 9, 2013 Not too long after that, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports discussed various players around the entire NFL who could be trade candidates as the deadline approaches. Some of those names included the likes of RB Maurice Jones-Drew, WR Kenny Britt, TE Tony Gonzalez, and DE Justin Tuck. At the end, he quickly threw in two members of the Browns, which may have some relevance due to his supposed connection to Browns general manager Michael Lombardi: Cleveland -- A "very proactive front office" isn't afraid to deal, obviously. La Canfora believes Mitchell Schwartz and Greg Little could be players potentially traded with. Brent Sobleski of the USA Today chimed in with his thoughts: So, G.Little & M.Schwartz now publicly named as possible trade bait? It's as much a motivational tool as it is the FO testing the market — Brent Sobleski (@brentsobleski) October 9, 2013 We've already seen a couple of offensive tackles moved (coming to our division) in the past week or so. With all of the problems the Browns have had on the offensive line this season, it's hard to imagine them outright dumping Mitchell Schwartz. They do have veteran right tackle Rashad Butler on the bench, but I don't see Cleveland getting enough value to justify the move. Unless the Browns can get someone to significantly overpay for Greg Little, I'd be in favor of him riding the season out as well. There is still a lot of talent there if he can cut out the drops like he did in the second half of 2012.

Dominic Raiola said he didn’t know whether to laugh or get mad when he first heard reports about his interaction with the University of Wisconsin marching band on Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Lions’ veteran center said the whole situation was blown out of proportion and that he did not use a homophobic slur. “I don’t speak like that. I have a lot of respect for you know, I have family members that are homophobic, you know that are gay,’’ he said stumbling, seeking the right word. “I have a lot of respect for them. “I know it’s a different kind of band but I have people in bands I’m best friends with I have a lot of respect for that so I don’t know about all that,’’ Raiola said on Wednesday. “And my brother went to Wisconsin, maybe somebody said your brother is better than you I don’t know,’’ Raiola said. He was accused of using profane and homophobic language in a blog after the game. Raiola called the band director and apologized on Tuesday along with making a “significant donation” to the band. Raiola said he had no idea the banter would become a big deal. “Not at all. I was actually laughing and joking with them at the end of the game, just talking, having a conversation,’’ Raiola said. “They were right behind our bench. I was actually having a conversation with them after the game. It was cool. I didn’t think twice about it. I was kind of surprised. I didn’t know whether to laugh or get mad when I saw it.’’ The Lions investigated the situation and did not fine him. Now Raiola wants to put it behind him and concentrate on playing the Browns at Cleveland on Sunday. (Follow @PaulaPasche on Twitter.

She does look awesome in purple. People across the country wear purple every year on October 17 to support Spirit Day. According to GLAAD, purple symbolizes "spirit." The day was created in 2010 in response to people committing suicide at a young age due to bullying. glaad.org Betty White, along with the rest of the cast of Hot In Cleveland, have voiced their support of Spirit Day. TV Land will be changing its logo to purple for the day. Danny Moloshok / Reuters While our society is making tremendous progress combating bullying behaviors in schools and communities across the country, it is still a devastating epidemic against which we must take a stand. Going purple for Spirit Day is an easy, simple, yet powerful way to show support, open a dialogue, and send a clear message that bullying of any kind isn't acceptable.Toyota is sponsoring the Spirit Day App. Of course Betty White supports it, seeing as she is literally the best human being on the planet. fuckyeahtoryparty.tumblr.com View Entire List ›
