Browns Vs. Bills: Pat Shurmur Says 'We've Got To Win This Game'

Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur knows that his team needs a win at home in Week 3 against the 1-1 Buffalo Bills. No team since 1998 has started out 0-3 and made the playoffs -- coincidentally that team was Buffalo. Shurmur talked to the Cleveland Plain Dealer Monday about this upcoming Sunday's game:

"We've got to win his game," Shurmur said...

"We need to do what we can to win this football game against a team that's coming off a big victory [35-17 over Kansas City]," he said. "I've got a lot of respect for Buffalo, because in my opinion they've done a lot of things to upgrade their roster in the last couple of years."

After Buffalo, the Browns travel to play the 1-1 Ravens, then host the defending champion Giants. The time to win is certainly now.
