Confident after picking up their third straight win on Sunday, Cleveland Browns rookies Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden each expressed their excitement with the team's ability to bounce back from a poor start to the season.
Richardson, who chipped in a career-high two rushing touchdowns in Week 14, told Will Burge of ESPN 850 WKNR that he believes the organization is "putting something together here and its going to be beautiful". The star rookie found the end zone for the 10th time this season with his second score of the afternoon, and mentioned how he hopes Sunday's performance can serve as a stepping stone for greatness.
Despite facing a significant amount of criticism for much of the year, the 29-year-old Weeden spoke of being impressed with the intensity from his teammates over the last few games. Weeden told Burge that the level of confidence around him continues to grow, and that his first-year receiver Josh Gordon is also maturing into more than just a deep threat within the offense. Although Weeden did not throw a touchdown in Sunday's win, he did not throw an interception for the first time on Cleveland's winning streak.
