Monday Night Countdown Segments:
“Unmasked:” Marshawn Lynch
When asked to describe his attitude going into his rookie season in 2007, Bills running back Marshawn Lynch exclaimed, “Beast Mode.” His teammates feel like the description fits Lynch’s running style and Lynch went so far as to have grills made for his teeth that say “BEAST MODE” in diamonds.
ESPN the Magazine’s “For Love or The Game:” Kellen Winslow
Kellen Winslow will be the subject of Monday’s “For Love or The Game”. Winslow’s wife, Janelle, and his teammate Brodney Pool battle to see who really knows Winslow better.
EA Sports Virtual Playbook: Browns Quarterback Brady Quinn
Tom Jackson breaks down how Brady Quinn’s short passing game could create problems for the Bills.
(FYI- ESPN is also airing a new “This is Sports Center” spot during the game’s first commercial break. The ad will star Carolina Panther’s Wide Receiver, Steve Smith.)
I’ve been wrong about three weeks in a row now, so I’m going to go against my better judgment and pick the Browns. I think they looked pretty solid with Quinn last week, and the Bills offense seems to be regressing as the season goes on (much like the Redskins). I’ll see you a little after 8pm for the fun!
Browns 24 – Bills 14
Update: Canceling the live-blog for tonight because something came up. Enjoy the game, and I’ll see you first thing tomorrow morning.
