NFL Week 11 overreactions and reality checks: Are Browns a playoff team? Brock Purdy MVP? Daron Bland DPOY

There may not have been a team in the NFL that needed a win more on Sunday than the Cleveland Browns.

Thompson-Robinson was far from perfect (24 of 43, 165 yards, no touchdowns, interception), but he led the Browns on a game-winning drive in the final 1:18, setting up the game-winning field goal.

Not including spikes, Thompson-Robinson was 4 of 4 for 39 yards on the final drive -- backing up a top-two defense that is more than good enough to get Cleveland to the postseason.

Thanks to the win, Cleveland is two games up on Indianapolis and Cincinnati for the final AFC playoff spot, and 1.5 games over Buffalo.




Bland continued his dominant season in the secondary with his fourth interception return for a touchdown on the season, tying Eric Allen (1993), Jim Kearney (1972), and Ken Houston (1971) for the most in a single season in NFL history.

Bland is having one of the best coverage seasons in recent memory, as opposing quarterbacks targeting him are completing just 43.1% of their passes for 231 yards with one touchdown to six interceptions for a 17.5 passer rating.

Benching Wilson in the third quarter was a long time coming, especially since Aaron Rodgers' backup has been dreadful throughout the year.
