NFL Week 11: Cleveland Browns Take Show On the Road To Jacksonville

What do you get when you lose four games by over 20 points, have one of the NFL's worst defenses and quite possibly could be playing for a lame-duck head coach?  A team right in the think of the AFC playoff race.  That's exactly what the Jacksonville Jaguars are and at 5-4, with the Browns coming to town, they feel they are very much alive in the AFC South.

Coming off one of the biggest wins in franchise history last week against the Houston Texans, the Jaguars are trying to build momentum for the stretch drive.  The Jags have already beaten the Colts this season and know they need to pile up as many wins as possible against team they feel they are better than.

As for the Browns, they will look to bounce back from a tough loss to the Jets in the final minute of overtime last Sunday.  

While the Browns have come on as of late, the Jaguars have been up and down all season.  When they have lost, they have looked awful, being outscored by 99 points in their 4 losses.  Of course, get them in a close game, and they usually find a way to pull it out.

The Jags are led by Maurice Jones-Drew who has started to get going with two straight 100-yard games.  He also scored two touchdowns against the Texans. 

The Browns have some injury concerns coming into the game as well.  Scott Fujita has already been ruled out of the game with a knee injury, and Josh Cribbs is battling broken toes and is a big question mark.
