The Arizona Cardinals started their Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns like a team who though they were supposed to win but didn't come out to play. They looked sluggish and sloppy in all facets of the game and found themselves down 7-0 after the first quarter.
On their first possession, the Cleveland Browns powered their way down the field against a Cardinals defense that looked like they were expected to cruise easily against the Browns. Cleveland went 76 yards on seven plays with Peyton Hillis going 35 yards and scoring the touchdown from one yard out.
John Skelton continued his early-game struggles, going 4-8 for just 33 yards on a series of short passes that were perhaps designed to get his confidence going early. Beanie Wells carried the ball four times for ten yards against the 31st-ranked Browns rushing defense.
The Browns have the ball and are driving as the game enters the second quarter.
