NFL game of the week: Browns vs. Jets

CLEVELAND RB PEYTON HILLIS

Hillis was an afterthought in a trade that sent Brady Quinn to Denver in the spring. He has been impressive for the upstart Browns through the first half of the year, as he has rushed for 644 yards and seven touchdowns including 184 against the Patriots a week ago. Hillis is also second on the team with 30 receptions for 229 yards.

N.Y. JETS LB BART SCOTT

The Jets are stout against the run, and a lot of that has to do with Scott from his inside linebacker position. Scott is the leader of a defense that is fourth in the league against the run allowing 87.4 yards per game. Scott has 47 tackles and one sack. He ranked second on the team with 107 tackles last season.

ADVANTAGE: CLEVELAND

Hillis has had three big games this year, ironically two of the three Cleveland won. Hillis ran for 102 yards in a win over Cincinnati and 184 against the Patriots. He had his most productive day against the Ravens when he ran 22 times for 144 yards and caught seven passes. Hillis accounts for nearly 36 percent of the Browns’ total offense.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
